Branch Law Firm Lobos Golf Clinic – FREE
When/Where: Saturday 9 a.m. to noon – Championship Course
Have you ever heard that golf is an expensive sport? Well, not always. This Saturday it’s free for women who come out to the New Mexico Championship Course to participate in the Branch Law Firm Lobo Golf Clinic.
There isn’t even a charge for clubs. If you don’t have a set – or can’t locate yours in the garage – the clinic will provide the necessary equipment at no cost.
The clinic, which runs from 9 a.m. to noon, is designed for both beginners, who need some gentle advice with this challenging game -- or for advanced golfers, who need some expert advice to take their game to the next level.
And there will be plenty of expert advice on hand.
The instructors for this three-hour clinic are New Mexico head coach Jill Trujillo, a LPGA/PGA professional, and her assistant Britney Choy, a former All-Mountain West golfer. Trujillo was a member of the New Mexico team from 1986-90 and won the 1988 New Mexico Women’s Amateur Open.
The players on the 2013-14 New Mexico women’s team also will be on hand to teach.
Before joining the UNM staff, Trujillo was the head golf professional at the Isleta Eagle Golf Course south of Albuquerque. The Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) Teaching and Club Professional (T&CP) membership recognized Trujillo as the 2009 Central Region Coach of the Year. She also won the award in 2007.
The clinic runs from 9 a.m. to noon at the Championship Course. Since this is a free clinic, there is no formal registration. Just show up ready to learn. If there is inclement weather, the clinic will move into New Mexico’s indoor teaching facilities.
