Barona Band teens excel at new sport -- golf


Young members of the Barona Band of Mission Indians are excelling at golf thanks to the tribe's golf course.

Five years ago, the tribe spent $12 million to build the course. Now, the best scorers for the golf team at El Capitan High School are from the tribe.

“Most people think of Indians as partying a lot and all that,” Harold Hill Jr, a 15-year-old sophomore, told The San Diego Union-Tribune. “I don't plan on doing that in my adult life. I plan on being a PGA professional. I plan on going to school.”
