04 Feb 2022 A Message from Renee Rocco, Executive Director
I am honored to have been selected as the Executive Director of the Southern Nevada Junior Golf Association. Over the past two and a half years I have served as the Operations Manager for the SNJGA and have had the pleasure of working with a great group of Board Members and an Executive Committee who have continued to work hard to grow the game of golf for juniors in Southern Nevada.
I am looking forward to continuing the work and progress we have made in this new role
Throughout my time with the SNJGA I have been able to increase our membership, create new fundraising events to drive revenue for various programs, support various partner organizations in town, create new programs for beginning golfers, and bring back our scholarship program. After a transitional period from The First Tee of Southern Nevada, the Southern Nevada Junior Golf Association has been able to establish themselves as the leader of junior golf in the area and I am looking forward to continuing the growth and reputation of the organization.
After graduating from James Madison University in Virginia, I was offered an internship with the Southern Nevada Golf Association which brought me out to Las Vegas. As an avid amateur golfer, I have been lucky enough to play in great tournaments, play at some great courses, and meet some incredible people along the way.
I believe golf is more than just a sport; it is a lifelong game that can take you far beyond a golf course. My goal as the Executive Director of the SNJGA is to continue to grow awareness around this game, create and expand our relationships with donors, volunteers, players, parents, and partners, and elevate junior golf in Southern Nevada.
Thank you to the SNJGA Executive Board for allowing me to take on this role. I am looking forward to the future of junior golf!
