In Memory of Denise Mazzaferri, PGA

It is with incredible sadness that we share the passing of Denise Mazzaferri, PGA Golf Professional. Denise was a business partner with her former spouse Mike Mazzaferri in Mazz Golf Management. Together with Denise’s help Mazz Golf took over the management of Sierra Sage on November 1, 2009. Denise was extremely proud of the rejuvenation of Sierra Sage and what we accomplished together and we couldn’t have done it without her professionalism and expertise.

Denise was a 29-year member of the Professional Golfer’s Association and was a pioneer in the golf industry. When she attained membership in the PGA there were very few female members. She was an outstanding junior golfer and attended Carson High School. During those years she was a Nevada State High School Golf Champion, played in the US Junior Amateur and numerous other national events. She went on to play college golf at San Jose State University. She remained a competitive player throughout her professional career and played on multiple Women’s PGA Cup Teams.
Denise’s true passion in golf was teaching the game. She was a staff instructor with the Jim McLean Golf School, the lead instructor for “Chix with Stix” and the initial Director of Instruction for The First Tee of Northern Nevada. She also coached the Damonte Ranch High School girl’s golf team to their first ever Regional Golf competition in 2009. Through her teaching career she introduced many youths to the game. She loved teaching our children and many of her students went on to play competitively. She had accomplished students who regularly played competitive junior events, high school competition, national and world junior events and college golf.

She worked at a variety of golf facilities including Edgewood Tahoe, Incline Village, Torrey Pines, Lightning W Ranch (Now Toiyabe), Hidden Valley CC and Sierra Sage Golf Course. We all benefitted from her incredible experience and she made Sierra Sage a better place…and for that we’ll be forever grateful.

Sierra Sage and Mazz Golf Management will hold a “Denise Mazzaferri Memorial Golf Event” to benefit The First Tee of Northern Nevada. This event will be planned for late Spring or early Summer (details for the golf event will be available soon).

In Lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made in honor of Denise Mazzaferri to the Northern Nevada Junior Golf Association. Donations can be mailed to 561 Keystone Avenue, Box 238, Reno NV 89503.

May God Bless You Denise Diane Mazzaferri
