Nike Golf Camps in Connecticut held at Goodwin Golf Course are proud to offer two different programs accommodating all skill levels. With Full Day and Half Day camps available, the beginner golfer to the tournament player will find a program suited for them. Director, Jim Goshdigian, looks forward to another summer of working with junior golfers in 2013!
Full Day Camp
These camps are designed for boys and girls between the ages of 7-16. At Nike Golf Schools & Junior Camps we accommodate all skill levels; the junior player just discovering the game, to the tournament level junior looking to improve his or her tournament results. The camps run Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Under the watchful eye of the Nike instruction staff, every morning for three hours, the campers practice all aspects of their games- putting, chipping, bunker play and full-swing. Morning instruction is followed by lunch and then 9 holes with on-course instruction. The camp has a low camper per instructor ratio of approximately 6:1.
Half Day Camp
Half Day golf camps offer children, ages 7 to 16, a fun opportunity to experience the wonders of golf in a healthy and positive environment. Our half day programs are designed to create interest and foster development in beginners and intermediate golfers. The camps run Monday to Friday from 9:00am to Noon and include fifteen hours of total range instruction. For three hours each day, campers sharpen their skills. 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!
