Nike Golf Camp at Arcadia Golf Course in Southern California is back in 2013 and offering two different programs accommodating all skill levels. Camp Director, Rich Carlson, and our staff of PGA Professionals look forward to working with junior golfers in a fun, supportive atmosphere.
Full Day Camps
These camps are an excellent opportunity for junior golfers to improve their skills and their course management at the same time. The students in the full day camp enjoy three hours of instruction each morning. This instruction works on all facets of the game and prepares the junior player for the challenges of the course. After a lunch, it’s off to the first tee! Full Day Camps at Arcadia are designed to create complete golfers and raise their game to the next level while having fun!
Half Day Camps
The camps run Monday to Friday and include fifteen hours of total range instruction. For three hours each day, campers sharpen their skills with our dedicated staff. Strong emphasis is placed on the fundamentals—stance, grip, posture, full swing, rules & etiquette, etc. As the week unfolds, campers receive quality short-game instruction and by Friday, each Nike junior golfer will see improvement in his or her golf game!
- Small group instruction with low student/teacher ratio from experienced teaching professionals
- Daily course play with the staff focusing on course management, shot selection, strategy, rules and etiquette (Full Day Camp only)
- Nike amenity package including a hat, one dozen golf balls, a camp workbook, bag tag and other great prizes
