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 discussions 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.
Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week.
Nike Camp participants stay at nearby Homewood Suites by Hilton.
The Overnight camp includes golf instruction, course play, housing at Homewood Suites, evening activities, and all meals. The Extended Day program includes everything except lodging and breakfast.

Pinewild Country Club
Pinewild Country Club of Pinehurst boasts forty eight holes of golf, four Har-Tru tennis courts, and a gracious swimming complex. The two championship golf courses, namely the Magnolia and the Holly are both stunning, and challenging to golfers of all skill levels.
The Magnolia, a 'traditional masterpiece', was designed by Gene Hamm, and has played host to the PGA Tour Qualifying School, the LPGA’s Pinewild Championship in 1995, as well US Open Qualifying.
The Holly, a Gary Player Signature Course, is fast becoming an area favorite, due to its panoramic beauty, 'risk reward' layout, and some of the best greens in the Sandhills. The Holly has played host to many USGA Qualifying events, as well as Carolinas PGA Championships. Whatever your choice of course, you are sure to enjoy the Bermuda grass blanketing the fairways, and velvet bent grass greens.
The Azalea course is a nine-hole par 3 course, which includes some of the more scenic holes on property. The remaining holes consist of three practice holes, which make up part of the world-class practice facility. Included in the practice facility are two large putting greens, a chipping green, a short-game complex and a magnificent range with greenside and fairway bunkers.
