Cliff Wagoner falls into the classifcation of movers and shapers.
Is there anyone alive who helped mold GCSAA more than Wagoner?
The evidence is plentiful. He served as GCSAA president in 1973. Wagoner
was behind the drive to relocate headquarters to Lawrence, Kan. He was
instrumental in launching the certifcation program for superintendents. In
fact, Wagoner was part of the frst class of superintendents to receive
certifed golf course superintendent (CGCS) status.
