A first at TRU
Natasha MacKenzie of Kamloops is the first member of the TRU WolfPack women’s golf team.
“I think it’s great to start a women’s program at TRU,” head coach Bill Bilton Jr. said.
“It’s long overdue. Women’s golf has so many open doors and career opportunities.”
MacKenzie, a South Kamloops secondary graduate, is a second-year business student at TRU.
“I’ve been playing golf since 2008 and have been serious about the sport for three years,” she said.
“I was determined to get a job at a golf course and pursue a career in the golf industry. Luckily, I got a job at Tobiano.”
Bilton is hosting tryouts for the two remaining team spots at The Dunes at Kamloops on Thursday, Aug. 30, and Friday, Aug. 31.
