Nike Advanced Golf Schools are golf-intensive and create the ideal environment for the advanced player ready to take their game to the next level. The 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. Campers are highly encouraged to attend these sessions with questions as the seminars are designed to be interactive and conversational in nature. Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week.
The Overnight camp fee includes golf instruction, green fees, housing and all meals. Does not include extra spending money. The Extended Day fee includes all the above except lodging and breakfast.
Nike Golf Schools and Jr. Camps does not provide transportation to and from airports, bus depots or train stations. The packet we send to registered campers in the spring offers suggestions on shuttle services for each specific camp.
Campers are supervised 24 hours a day. The staff lives in the dormitories/resort accommodations with the campers and participates in evening activities. Drugs, alcohol and tobacco are strictly prohibited, and constitute, along with general misconduct, grounds for dismissal from camp without a refund.
A detailed camper registration packet containing check in location, health/release forms, emergency contact info, and a list of things to bring will be emailed to all registered campers in the Spring.
Mississippi State University Golf Course
Designed by renowned golf course architect Brian Ault in 1986, the MSU Golf Course clearly separates itself as the best public golf course in the Golden Triangle. Home to the MSU golf team, guests can practice right beside team members on the course's driving range, putting green and short game practice facility. The course also serves as the official golf facility of the MSU College of Business and Industry's Professional Golf Management Program (PGM). In 1996, Golf Digest listed the University Golf Course as the fifth-best public course in the state of Mississippi. Golf Digest called the University Golf Course the "best college course in the South," adding it was "challenging, but fair" with a "fun, walkable layout."
