  • Rosa Jones

    Rosa Jones

    Assistant Golf Professional

    Rosa Jones is the Assistant Golf Professional and Youth Program Coordinator for the I Am a Golfer Foundation. Born in Long Island, New York to PGA Professional Rich Jones, Rosa has been submerged in the game of golf since she was a child. “I’ve had a club in my hand since I was basically 3 years old.” Rosa has played golf at the collegiate level for Franklin Pierce University and Howard University’s Inaugural women’s golf team. During her time at Howard, she earned her master’s in public health, and held the title of Minority Leadership Initiative (MLI) Future Leader. There she began to see more athletes who looked like her playing the game.
     
    It wasn’t until Howard that her passion for golf was strengthened, and she wanted to further diversify the game. “In order to see change, it’s important to get involved in areas where you may not initially feel included.” She acknowledges that business networking often excludes women and people of color in golf and she is committed to making the sport more inclusive, finding new ways to play, and welcoming faces from all over to the game. Finding her way to Cedar Crest felt natural as it aligns with her love for golf and persistence in getting others involved.
     
    Outside of golf, Rosa enjoys hitting the gym and exploring new things to do wherever she is! She always finds ways to stay active and takes on life with a positive mindset.

  • Ouname  Mhotsha

    Ouname Mhotsha

    Assistant Golf Professional, Coordinator of Golf & Tournament Operations

    Ouname Mhotsha is one of the few young ladies introduced to golf in Botswana, Africa. She first picked up a golf club when she was 7 years old as a response to her father’s encouragement to try the sport. Golf went on to be part of her after-school routine as she waited for her father who worked as a professional assistant at the Gaborone Golf Club Pro shop. At the age of 12, she had her first swing coach, a regular member of the golf club and in 2009 at the age of 14, she won her first tournament playing in the ladies section as a junior golfer. In 2010, she became the youngest player to dominate the golf ranks in the country, she attained 16 amateur wins to date, including 2 international wins.
     
    Ouname started playing as a touring professional in the Cactus tour located in Arizona in 2023. She aspired to become a professional golfer because, growing up, she wished to see someone from her country playing with other professionals, and there was no one. Ouname attributes her milestones to the support from her family, especially her parents, who supported her while she embarked on a road less traveled. The encouragement from the golfing communities in Botswana (especially Gaborone Golf Club), various African countries, and the USA; Monticello Country Club (Arkansas), Shalimar Golf Club (Arizona), and Dobson Ranch Golf Course (Arizona) members have greatly contributed to her pursuit in her golf dreams.
     
    Outside of golf, Ouname enjoys doing projects related to her environmental sustainability academic background, presenting at academic conferences, spending time outdoors in nature and fun physical challenges like hiking and rock climbing.
