Nike Golf Camps in Marin are hosted at Peacock Gap which is located just a few minutes from San Pablo Bay in San Rafael. The facilities include a recently renovated practice facility which makes it an ideal location for a Nike Golf Camp.

2014 Winter Camp December 29th - 31st

Junior golfers, keep your game sharp over the winter break with SSU Head Coach, Val Verhunce. Campers receive three days of instruction from Coach Val's experienced staff and go home with a Nike Amenity Package. All aspects of the game are addressed (short game, putting, and full swing). The program runs from 10:00am - 1:00pm each day. Camp tuition is $225. 

Full Day Camps 9:00am-4:00pm

These camps are an excellent opportunity for junior golfers to improve their skills and their course management at the same time. The students enjoy three hours of instruction each morning and work on all facets of the game to prepares the junior player for the challenges of the course. After a lunch it’s off to the first tee. During course play professionals teach strategy, etiquette and course management. The Full Day Camp is designed to create complete golfers and raise their game to the next level.

Half Day Camps 9:00am-12:00pm or 1:00-4:00pm

Camp Details

Peacock Gap Golf Course

Classic golf course architecture is defined by fairways that invite but challenge and greens that creep beyond where the player thinks they end. This is the intrigue of classic golf and the foundation of Peacock Gap Golf Course. Sheltered from the fog and blessed with sunny weather, this corner of Marin County provides a terrific environment for a great round of golf.

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.

Loved It!

"I am writing on behalf of my 8 year old son who attended the program. He loved it, and I intend to enroll both of my boys next summer. I'm not a golfer, so I haven't seen him golf yet, but I'm sure he has improved. Thank you, for a great week of camp! We will definitely recommend your camp to friends in the future."
