Fairchild Wheeler Golf Course

Fairchild Wheeler offers two challenging 18 hole golf courses. The Red Golf Course demands accurate tee shots which will leave most golfers with mid to short irons for their approach shots. Don’t let that fool you because the Red Golf Course has tough greens that will make most golfers double and triple check the breaks. The Wheel also has great practice facilities for campers to hone their game on which makes this golf course the perfect site for a Nike Jr. Golf Camp.

  • Noon Lunch
  • 1:00pm Course play with staff. On-course instruction on club selection, course management, rules and etiquette

There should be more hands-on instruction

"There should be much more actual hands-on instruction, not just having the kids hit balls while a coach was watching. Also, lunch should be healthier - include fruit to eat and milk and juice to drink."
