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.

- Daily course play with the staff (Full Day Camp only)
