What People are Saying
I have been a basketball official just as long as I've been golfing. As one of a handful of black female officials I'm hoping to inspire other black women to join me.
I am a 13-year-old grade 8 French emersion student . I started playing soccer & basketball at a very young age, now have an interest in golf, so I am really looking forward to participating in BLMG Junior Program, and playing in the 2021 BLMG Tournament in my home community of East Preston.
"I want to commend Duan and Channing for teaming up with Grandview to host this tournament in support of the BLM initiative. It was great experience to be teamed up with an experienced golf mentor. The time spent sharing positive stories about our Black NS communities was invaluable".
"Going into the tournament I was excited, but nervous. My first time being in a golf tournament of any kind, and I couldn't have asked for it to be with a better group of men. I always thought golf was kind of a boring sport. Now I have much more appreciation for the pros, and I'm looking forward to improving my game for next year!"
