From: Phoenix, AZ

Hi y'all! I recently graduated from The University of Texas - Rio Grande Valley with a bachelors degree in Marketing. While at UTRGV I played on the men's golf team all four years and was also a part of the American Marketing Association, National Society of Collegiate Scholars, and the Student Athlete Advisory Committee. Prior to college in South Texas, I went to high school at Mountain Pointe in Phoenix, AZ where I lettered in golf all four years and one year in track (pole vault). My biggest golf achievement thus far is playing in the 2013 U.S. Amateur at The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts; I tied my career low round with a 66 at The Wigwam Gold Course to qualify. 

I am looking forward to a fun filled summer with aspirations of passing on some instruction to help your golf game, life lessons, and an overall great experience!

Nike Junior Golf Camps, Monterey is proud to showcase heath and nutritional coaching from top nutritionist Cate Ritter. The “go to” girl for for some of the world’s top publications, Cate’s road to nutrition was literally born on the links. A top ranked Northern California junior and standout collegiate athlete, Cate speaks the player’s language, clearly understanding the demands and rigors of tournament golf. Her passion for the game was the catalyst behind creating special programs dedicated to competitive players to better achieve their personal and professional performance goals.

Still an avid golfer, Cate’s golf-based nutrition tips have appeared in Golf Digest Woman, Golf Infuzion Magazine, Golf Tips Magazine, GolfPunk Magazine, the 19th Hole Magazine, The Arizona Republic as well as ABC TV. Cate's invaluable contribution to the Nike Junior Golf Camp experience serves to inspire kids in the simple ideas and principles behind living and playing your best for a lifetime! Cate is especially excited to be joining us this summer as she has fond memories a Pebble Beach. In fact, if you make your way to the Pebble Beach clubhouse you'll find her name on a perpetual trophy for her participation in the 1999 Tournament of Champions conducted by the Junior Golf Association of Northern California!

Lives in: Lancaster, PA

From: Lancaster, PA

I love the game of golf. Through my four years of playing golf at Millersville University, I have experienced many successes and failures. I hope to share what I have learned throughout my young career to juniors all around the world. Whether teaching teammates, junior golfers, or giving hundreds of mini lessons at the U.S. Open in Chambers Bay, I always enjoy working with people.

I believe that golfers don’t get confidence from how well they play, but how well they prepare. If players learn to improve their preparation and focus on things under their control, they will improve their experience within the game and become better players as a result.

I look forward to having a positive impact on the lives and games of the junior players this summer and helping them achieve their own goals.

Facilities

World Class Golf Courses

Rancho Canada - Each day, our staff provides campers with three hours of expert instruction at the beautiful Rancho Canada Golf Course located in the heart of the fabled Monterey Peninsula. Campers can take full advantage of the course's 36 Championship holes and premier practice facilities to improve their golf skills. In addition to the daily instruction, Nike Golf campers travel to nearby golf courses with the staff where they can take their newly acquired skills to the links. 

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.

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!

Incredible week

"My son had an incredible week. He already said he wants to go back for 2 weeks next summer! He thrived on the format you've structured and loved every minute (except for maybe the french dip dinner). Thank you!"

Loved it

"Loved it. Great instruction and follow up. Enjoyed the other campers immensely. Good that there was a division between beginners and more advanced players. Thanks so much for a wonderful experience!"

My children had a great time

"My children had a great time playing various courses at Pebble Beach. I signed them up mainly to play different courses thinking that the instruction would not be very good as most summer camps do not have good instruction (We have not had good experiences at other specialty sport camps). However, we were wrong about that! Jeff Ritter and his staff gave great feedback to my boys about their swing mechanics. In fact, the feedback he gave my children was similar to the feedback their home golf instruction gave them as well. They enjoyed playing the courses. The children loved watching the long swing golfer break a watermelon. One suggestion I would give is that boarding school have a more allergen friendly meal plan and that the school and the golf course provide a meal menu with allergen information, especially since so many children have food allergies. Last, I would give very positive feedback to Langley who carried my son's epipen all week-- thank you to her! We appreciated all her help."

Staff was Incredible

"My daughter and her best friend attended together & we were concerned about two ten your old girls being out of place & overwhlemed. They were the youngest campers and 2 of only three girls. However, we were extremely surprised by the level of care, concern and supervision the staff showed towards them. The entire staff tailored things to their level of golf & stamina making them extremely comfortable being 1600 miles away from home The entire staff was just incredibly accommodating & yet ran a disciplined,very well organized, professional event. They can't wait to go back next year!"
