Native Youth Get Inside Look at Golf Industry


Posted By Toyacoyah Brown July 2nd, 2017 Blog


Native youth took part in the annual Native American Youth Golf Day this past week at the Santa Ana Golf Club owned and operated by Santa Ana Pueblo.

Not only did the kids get a chance to play golf, but learn what it takes to work in the golf industry, whether that's a full-time professional or those that help run the course and tournaments.

“Exposing them not only to the game of golf, but understanding what it takes to run an actual facility,” added PGA teaching professional Jason Montoya. “And there are many Native American-owned facilities, and this is a great opportunity for them to learn something.”
