The Notah Begay III Foundation Challenge, or NB3 Challenge, was a charity golf tournament played at Atunyote Golf Club at the Turning Stone Resort & Casino in Oneida, New York. All proceeds benefit the Notah Begay III Foundation for the creation and delivery of sustainable athletic programming for Native American youth.
Notah Begay III Foundation
In 2005, Notah Begay III, a four-time PGA Tour winner and the only full-blooded Native American PGA Tour player, established the Notah Begay III Foundation. It is a federally recognized 501(c)3 non-profit organization designed to provide sustainable health and wellness programs for Native American youth. Recognizing the lack of sustainable programming for youth within Tribal communities, Begay established the Foundation to deliver youth sports activities in tribal communities in the form of golf and soccer programs.
