Nike Golf Schools & Junior Camps in Nebraska provide young golfers with the tools to enjoy this great game for a lifetime. Our curriculum is the perfect blend of expert instruction from Scott Holly and PGA professionals, course play at Wilderness Ridge and fun off-course activities. After six years of running successful camps we’ve created an environment that allows campers to leave feeling confident in their golf game. Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the director and staff and placed in a program that addresses their own instructional needs.

Campers are supervised 24 hours a day. The staff lives in the dormitories/resort accommodations with the campers and participates in evening activities. Drugs, alcohol and tobacco are strictly prohibited, and constitute, along with general misconduct, grounds for dismissal from camp without a refund.
