An Active Adult Community



Since its inception in 1980, the Cottonwood Men’s Golf Association (CMGA) has stayed true to its founding purpose of promoting the interest of men’s golf and fostering sportsmanship among all members.

In 1981 the first club championship was held and since that time over 24 different men have been crowned club champion.  Two-time winners of this honor include Bob Mackinder, Howard Brown, Burke Barlow, Hank Hano and Tim Shum.  CMGA has historically looked upon the Club Championship, President’s Cup and the Ace of Aces as its major tournaments.

The association has always taken seriously its responsibility to schedule tournaments and events that are challenging, yet fair to the indivicuals involved.  That same spirit permeates the work of the organization today as it provides services to members whose ages range from 55 to 90+.  The goal is to assure all members that they can compete in an atmosphere that is friendly and supportive of their skill levels.

When the association was initially formed it was restricted to men who lived in the Cottonwood and Palo Verde communities.  Today CMGA membership is open to men who live in IronOaks and Sun Lakes Country Club as well.  Currently over 320 men are active in the association.
