Nearly 100 local kids benefited this month from a free Youth Golf Clinic held at at the Bandon Dunes Golf Resort, one of the region’s premiere golf courses on July 15. The Coquille Indian Tribe and Bandon Dunes teamed up to host the event with the intention of giving back to the community and engage children in the sport.
Mill Casino representative Mike Black was on hand and says each kid received an opportunity to improve their skills by coaching from resort professionals. In addition, they played the par 3 course at Bandon Dunes Practice Center- an opportunity of lifetime for any golf lover!
The Colquille Indian Tribe also hosted their annual Adult Golf Fundraiser Tournament at Watson Ranch Golf Course in Coos Bay. Proceeds from the tournament will help send kids to a golf camp next week at Watson Ranch Golf.
