Program Administrator, Maya Northcutt
My name is Maya Northcutt. I’ve had the opportunity to start my golf career as a four year old at Steve Hogan’s First Tee Program at Miller Park. This is where I found my love for golf using the Nine Core Values.
Many of my accomplishments with First Tee lead me to pursue gold in high school. I was the first student of color to make it to the State Golf Tournament all four years of my high school career. While in high school, I scored my lowest score of 78. Which made many other doors open such as being able to do a golf camp at Clemson University. I furthered my golf career at Iowa Western Community college, where we won the NJCAA Women’s Region Championship which allowed us to play for the National Championship in Daytona, FL. After completing Iowa Western, I went on to play golf at Savannah State.
