Step back in time and share in the rich 58-year history of the Colorado PGA and professional golf in Colorado. Gracing the Bear Dance grand entryway, a one-of-a kind collection of memorabilia and photographs occupies over 1,000 square feet, and is a lasting tribute to the achievements of the Colorado PGA and its member golf professionals. Headquartered at Bear Dance since it’s opening in April of 2002, The Colorado PGA and its rapidly growing membership moved from its former location to our golf course in an attempt to provide the greatest overall benefit to the association and its members. Today, the more than 800 members and apprentices of the Colorado PGA are proud to call The Golf Club at Bear Dance their home. We invite you to stop by and take a moment to stroll through Colorado’s most significant golf landmark, created to highlight the Colorado PGA’s rich history and extraordinary presence throughout the years.
