Rancho San Joaquin is located in Irvine and is one of the finer public courses in the Orange County area. Nike Golf Camps run programs throughout the summer and has established itself as one of the most popular camp locations in Southern California. Over 200 juniors a year attend these programs, returning year after year to get better and have fun doing it!

Full Day Camps

Our full day camps are a wonderful way for our campers to enjoy a full day of golf. Each day starts with proper warm up stretches and exercises, followed by three hours of instruction on all facets of the game. We break for lunch after the morning instruction before heading out for course play. On the golf course, students will work on course management and the shots they learned earlier in the day.

Half Day Camps

Our Half Day camps are designed to pique the interest of the potential new golfer or give the experienced golfer the instruction they need to improve. These camps give the same quality instruction that our full day camps provide. Each day starts with proper warm up stretches and exercises, followed by three hours of range instruction.

Highlights Include

  • Small group instruction with low student/teacher ratio from experienced teaching professionals
  • Daily course play with the staff (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
