Built upon a holistic approach to achieving peak performance, our programs infuse clinics on nutrition, golf fitness, sports psychology, college golf and dream-building into the camp experience. It’s this diversified approach to learning that provides kids with not only the skills to play better golf, but the tools take charge of their lives physically and emotionally as well. The program is facilitated by Nike Junior Golf Camps National Director of Instruction, Jeff Ritter. One of the world’s most prominent coaches, Ritter is a constant force in the world of golf media and is ranked by Golf Digest Magazine as one the “Best Young Teachers in America!” An accomplished coach, author and compelling motivational speaker, his unique approach to teaching has made his program a favorite amongst campers for over a decade.

World Class Golf Courses
Links at Spanish Bay - Spanish Bay recalls the original Scottish concept for the game of golf, established over five hundred years ago. This was the intention of the design team, Robert Trent Jones Jr., Tom Watson and Sandy Tatum, in their creation of a true links golf course. Links is an old Scottish word for sandy wasteland, usually near the sea, with bristly grasses and ever prevailing wind. The Links at Spanish Bay are so authentic that even the Monterey coastline mirrors the rugged, natural beauty of Scotland.
Del Monte - Opened in 1897, Del Monte Golf Course is the oldest course in continuous operation west of the Mississippi. Designed by golf and polo enthusiast Charles Maud, this inland course boasts a meandering layout that has challenged golfers for more than a century.
Poppy Hills Golf Course - Poppy Hills is the first golf course to be owned and operated by a regional golf association in the country. Built in 1986 by Robert Trent Jones Jr., Poppy Hills hosted the PGA Tour’s AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am from 1991 through 2009.
Bayonet Golf Course - Bayonet, with its narrow playing corridors and steep, penal bunkering, has long been considered the most difficult test of golf on the Monterey Peninsula. The par-72, 7,104-yard course has retained its famous bite after the recent renovation by award-winning architect Gene Bates, but playability and strategic options have been greatly improved.
Robert Louis Stevenson School
Campers are housed at the prestigious Robert Louis Stevenson School, located in Pebble Beach, California. RLS is a beautiful College Prep School. The dorms are nestled in the Del Monte Forest a quarter of a mile down the road from the first tee at Pebble Beach Golf Links and just steps from the eighteenth tee at Spyglass Golf Links. It is the most beautiful location to hold a golf camp in the world!
