Camp Details

Nike Advanced Golf camps are golf-intensive and create the ideal environment for the advanced player ready to take their game to the next level. The Advanced camp seminars provide the aspiring junior golfer the opportunity to receive information about tournament preparation and college golf recruitment and success. Campers will hear first hand accounts of how members of our staff established themselves throughout various stages of their development. The importance of goal setting, time management, and hard work will be stressed as these are key elements to attaining success in golf and life.

Nike Golf Campers reside onsite at Bandon Dunes Resort in the Lily Pond Rooms. Just a wedge shot from the Lodge, a paved walking trail connects the Lily Pond Rooms to the Lodge and first tee at Bandon Dunes. A shuttle is available to take you to Pacific Dunes, the Practice Center, or any of our restaurants or lounges. The Lily Pond Rooms are very spacious and include two queen beds, a sitting area, fireplace, bathroom, and private deck overlooking the Lily Pond and surrounding forest.

Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the director and staff and placed in a program that addresses their own instructional needs.
