Pro golfer to build course on reservation


Notah Begay III, the only American Indian golfer on the PGA tour, is tapping his roots as he builds an $8.5 million course on a reservation in Kansas. The 18-hole Firekeeper Golf Course -- Begay's first signature course -- will cover 240 acres near the Prairie Band Potawatomi Casino and Resort on a reservation near Mayetta. Named for the Prairie Band, known as the "keepers of the sacred fire," Begay said the course should be ready to open next summer.
