Last Sunday I had the opportunity to play in the Vice Chairman’s Golf Tournament during the National Indian Gaming Association convention in Phoenix, Arizona. The vice chairman of NIGA also happens to be the tribal chairman for Bois Forte, so it was really an honor to be a part of the Fortune Bay team.
The tournament was held at We-Ko-Pa Golf Club in Fort McDowell, Arizona. There are two 18-hole courses there – Saguaro and Cholla. We played the former, which has been rated the number one public course in Arizona the past four years by Golf Week. It also sits at number 85 on the top 100 modern courses list for 2011.
The weather and people were great, the scenery breathtaking and my golf game actually not that rusty.
Now to bring some of this warm weather back to Minnesota…Originally published by DK on April 5, 2011 at 9:00 pm
