Nike Golf Camps near Princeton, NJ are back in 2014 with Coach Ronnie Kane! These programs have become the most popular golf day camps in the entire state of New Jersey. The Lawrenceville School, one of the finest prep schools in the country, is located just four miles south of Princeton University.
The primary emphasis during the RK Golf Academy Day Camps is the development of fundamental skills through group and individual instruction. Coach Kane and his staff create an environment that is conducive to learning by balancing instruction, competition and fun for all campers. Each day is devoted to different aspects of the game. Woods, long irons, short irons, sand play, putting and specialty shots are covered during each session. RK Golf Academy methods of teaching are based on sound principles that have been simplified to help campers quickly grasp the mechanics of the golf swing.
Our Day Camps run from 9am-3pm. Ronnie offers overnight programs at Lawrenceville School in addition to his day camps. For information on these programs, please CLICK HERE.
