For his contributions to golf in Colorado — especially the Western part of the state — the Colorado Section of the Professional Golf Association last weekend honored Craig resident Chuck Cobb. The Colorado PGA gave Cobb the Warren Smith Award last Friday because of his long-time service to the game of golf on a local level. The Warren Smith Award, named after a golf pro at Cherry Hills Country Club for almost 30 years, is given to “a PGA professional for special contributions to the game of golf, the Colorado Section PGA, junior golf and to their facility,” according to the Colorado PGA’s description. Ben Welsh, golf pro at Eagle Vail Golf Club and Awards Committee chair for Colorado PGA, described it as a lifetime achievement award.
