The 13th Annual Denise Martinez Memorial Pro-Am Tournament supports the greater Flagstaff community through the Forest Highlands Foundation. The Foundation channels the generosity of the Forest Highlands community to support the Flagstaff non-profit organizations which most efficiently  and effectively provide services to our neighbors in need.   Our funding decisions are the result of detailed investigation and careful deliberation. 

Denise Martinez was all about giving back, too.  After an outstanding  Arizona playing career in high school and college, and a fling at the tour, Denise devoted herself to a career as a club professional.  After moving to  Forest Highlands where she started as an assistant in the pro shop, Denise worked her way up to become one of the few female Directors of Golf in the state.

She  was widely,  known  not only as a great player and teacher, but also as a superb mentor of young club professionals.  Her big smile, warm people skills,  consummate professionalism, and love for the game of golf  made her extremely popular with everyone in the golf community. At every opportunity, Denise was a volunteer and great supporter of golf charities, junior golf, and the Special Olympics.

Tragically, Denise died in 2008 in a motor-scooter accident in Truckee, CA, where she had moved to start a new phase of her professional career. Your participation in our Memorial Golf Tournament will help us celebrate the life  of  Denise Martinez, and it will advance the work of the Forest Highlands Foundation.  We offer our gratitude to the Martinez Family for their ongoing support.
