A PGA Professional with decades of experience teaching golf to players of all levels, Borrego completed his BA Degree from Sacramento State, and played golf through college. He was a member of the prestigious Hannah Wehrman Cup Team in 2011.
Borrego previously taught a variety of classes at Greenhorn Creek Resort, including the PLAYer, PAR and Birdie classes which are programs within The First Tee.

The First Tee is excited to welcome Borrego to the San Joaquin Chapter.
The First Tee of San Joaquin is an organization that aims to impact the lives of young people by providing educational programs that build character, instill life-enhancing values, and promote healthy choices through the game of golf.
Started as a way to bring an affordable junior golf program to youth and communities that did not have them, The First Tee discovered that blending the rules of the game with life and leadership skills allowed kids and teens to learn how to putt while also learning important values. By participating in The First Tee, young people are introduced to core values which are incorporated throughout the program.
