Ensuring the Future of the Game
Through our support of organizations such as The First Tee of Connecticut and the Connecticut Section PGA Junior Golf Association we help to promote grass roots efforts necessary to develop golf participation. In addition to providing FREE Handicapping services to all Junior members, the CSGA also allows Junior golfers membership to one of five regional “Clubs for Schools."
Connecticut Golf Hall of Fame
In 1991, the Connecticut State Golf Association assumed stewardship of the Connecticut Golf Hall of Fame with the dedicated intention of carrying on the successful selection process so well exercised by the Greater Harford Jaycees. Led by Gene Sarazen and Julius Boros, the Connecticut Golf Hall of Fame collectively boasts 21 major golf championship titles: six U.S. Opens, five National PGAs, three National Senior PGAs, two Masters, two British Amateurs, two U.S. Women's Amateurs and one British Open.
