Wilford Woody was a pioneer member of the CGA as an unpaid volunteer and one of Denver’s early teachers who promoted sports of all kinds.
From 1935 until his death in 1975 Woody drafted schedules, drew up pairings, solicited and processed entries and served as an unofficial publicity director for the CGA.
He was president of Wellshire Golf Course from 1948 to 1954. Woody was Denver West High School assistant principal 1944-1945 and became principal of all schools in Westwood from 1947-1950 (annexed by Denver in 1947). He went on to become the principal at West High from 1950 through 1963, when he retired.
In 1969, Woody was inducted into the Colorado High School Coaches Association Hall of Fame.
