Golf Pros Notah Begay III, Gabby Lemieux Host Youth Golf Clinic at Talking Stick Golf Club
Native youth in the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community recently learned the basics of golf from two of Indian Country’s premier golfers.
Professional golfers Notah Begay III (Navajo) and Gabby Lemieux (Shoshone-Paiute) hosted the Youth Golf Clinic on the morning of November 8 at Talking Stick Golf Club. The clinic was part of a collaboration between the golf club, Fresh Start Women’s Foundation and REDW LLC, CPAs and Financial Advisors.
“Enjoyed a wonderful morning, teaming with Gabby Lemieux, Nike N7, REDW, Talking Stick Golf Club,” Begay shared on social media, along with a group photo. “Introducing golf to local girl scout troop from Salt River Indian Community. Also addressed the importance of leadership, financial literacy, personal responsibility and fitness. #GrowTheGame.”
