I take great exception to your comments in an article in the spring issue of the above-referenced magazine. And after viewing your website, I also don't understand your mission.
Why not support all women to benefit from the game of golf? Why does it seem black people always have to feel picked on? Encouraging a young black girl to take up the game of golf so she can be at the board room table is like me telling a young white girl to take up the game of basketball so she can play for the Golden State Warriors.
Simply by your name "Black Girls Golf" you are contributing to the impression that you are different, that you need to belong to a special group to play golf.
Golf is for everyone. We have a fabulous world-wide program in The First Tee to encourage kids to gain life skills through the game of golf. It teaches character-building traits like integrity and honesty. No where are the kids told golf will get you in the boardroom. You mission is mis-guided and short-sighted, in my opinion.
Specifically, you said in the article that when you met Condoleezza Rice at Pebble Beach "you were the only 2 black women within a 10 mile radius". Please check your geography. You may have been the only black women at the Pebble Beach Golf Academy at that time, but the Monterey peninsula has an extremely diverse population of whites, Asians, Hispanics and blacks. I live here. As a Caucasian, I am a minority. As I mentioned earlier---it seems like you want to feel picked on.
Secondly, why would you paint golf professionals with such a broad brush: "I do know that golf professionals aren't professionals, they're golfers that are forced to take on a professional role and that they're not always the most organized in terms of getting back to people or scheduling." My son is a PGA certified instructor and golf pro here in Monterey. Perhaps you should educate yourself by going to the PGA of America website and understanding what it takes to become a golf professional. I agree that you were treated poorly by not receiving a call back, regardless of what you were wanting help with. But please don't criticize all golf professionals who are dedicated to our game simply by the actions of one individual.
