ONEIDA NATION HOMELANDS - The "Play Golf Native America Day" will be hosted at Turning Stone Resort's Atunyote Golf Club near Verona, New York on Monday, August 29 from 10 am - 1 pm.
"The Play Golf Native America Day" is being hosted by PGA golfer Notah Begay's NB3 Foundation and the PGA and targets youth and families.
Monday's activities will include a clinic from PGA Tour Professional Notah Begay III, Navajo, fitness training from David Donatucci, Director of Fitness and Performance for The PGA of America, free golf lessons and clinics from Central New York PGA Professionals, and presentations on health and nutrition.
The Monday event is in conjunction with NB3 Foundation Challenge that is being held on Wednesday August 31 at Atunyote, will feature Begay joined by fellow PGA Tour players Rickie Fowler, Tiger Woods and Hunter Mahan participating in a mixed team format alongside LPGA Tour stars Cristie Kerr, Annika Sorenstam, Suzann Pettersen and Natalie Gulbis.
Golfers, and especially non-golfers, of all ages are invited to come and experience this opportunity to have fun and enjoy the sport of golf.
The PGA of America and the NB3 Foundation are partnering to host three "Play Golf Native America" events in the fall of 2011. The goal of the partnership is to create more opportunities for Native Americans to receive culturally appropriate junior golf programming, access to golf equipment and golf courses, and fitness and nutrition programming to help Native American youth and their families enjoy the sport of golf for a lifetime.
Health and wellness are at the forefront of the partnership as The PGA and NB3 Foundation look to create awareness and to help fight childhood obesity and diabetes. The Play Golf America events, and follow-up PGA-NB3 Foundation programs, are designed to keep Native American youth engaged with fitness and nutrition on and off the golf course.
The two remaining events will be held in September and November as part of National Obesity Prevention Month and National Native American Heritage Month at Native American owned golf facilities.
