Nike Golf Camps in Orange County at Lake Forest Golf and Practice Center are dedicated to getting kids to enjoy golf and improve their games. Camp Director, Brian Konrath, and his Nike Camp staff are looking forward to another great season of golf in 2013!
Full Day Camps
The Nike Camp Staff is on hand to provide campers with top quality instruction each day. At Nike Golf Schools and Junior Camps we accommodate all skill levels; the junior player just discovering the game to the high school player trying to move up on the team. Under the watchful eye of the staff, each morning campers practice all aspects of their games- putting, chipping, bunker play and full-swing. The morning session is followed by lunch and afternoon course play with the staff.
Half Day Camps
Our half day programs are designed to create interest and foster development in beginners and intermediate golfers. 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!
Nike Advanced Camp at Lake Forest is designed for players (ages 11-17) who play competitive golf or who are looking to start playing competitively. Players receive individualized instruction with a low 4:1 student to teacher ratio. Emphasis is on short game instruction, tournament preparation, course management techniques, and full swing V-1 video instruction.
- Small group instruction with low student/teacher ratio from experienced PGA 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
- Safe, healthy and fun learning environment
Brian, a native Californian, is a second -generation golf professional and has been playing the game since he's been 5 years old. From age 7, he played on the junior PGA circut and captured the Orange County junior championship at age 9. He continued playing as a junior on the Norco High School golf team. After high school, Brian attended Orange Coast College and pursued his career as a golf professional, competing on the Golden State, Pepsi and Centerline tours, as well as numerous PGA sectional events. During that same period he worked at Riverview Golf Course, Black Gold Golf Club and Lake Forest Golf and Practice Center as an instructor and assistant golf professional, where he is now the Director of Instruction.
Lake Forest Golf and Practice Center
Lake Forest Golf & Practice Center offers a fun and friendly atmosphere for all types of golfers. Our charming 9-hole executive golf course is beautifully set among orange groves, mature trees and two sparkling lakes. The course layout is easily walkable and offers a perfect introduction to golf for beginning golfers and juniors, while still delivering a challenge to the seasoned player. The course is also lit, which offers a chance to play after work or spend an evening with friends.
Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week.
A detailed camper registration packet containing check in location, health/release forms, emergency contact info, and a list of things to bring will be emailed to all registered campers in the Spring.
