Nike Golf Camps, Salt Creek Golf Club

Nike Golf Camps in Chula Vista are held at Salt Creek Golf Club for the fourth consecutive year in 2015. Our staff is led by Director of the Salt Creek Jr. Golf Academy, Phillip Schmidt III and is dedicated to giving each Nike camper the best possible golf experience.

Full Day Camps

These camps are an excellent opportunity for junior golfers (ages 7-16) to improve their skills and their course management at the same time. Each morning begins with three hours of instruction which covers all facets of the game and prepares the junior player for the challenges of the course. Morning instruction is followed by lunch and on-course play where professionals teach strategy, etiquette, shot selection and course management. The camps run Monday thru Friday, 9:00-4:00.

Half Day Camps

These camps offer juniors (ages 7-16) a fun opportunity to experience the wonders of golf in a healthy and positive environment. The camps run Monday-Friday and include 15 hours of instruction. Strong emphasis is placed on the fundamentals-stance, grip, posture, full swing, rules and etiquette, etc. As the week unfolds, campers receive quality short-game instruction and by Friday, each Nike junior golfer will see improvement in their golf game. 

Highlights Include

  • Small group instruction with low student/teacher ratio from experienced teaching professionals
  • Daily course play with the staff focusing on course management, shot selection, strategy, rules and etiquette (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

The main reason for the growth and positive reputation of Salt Creek's camps is due to the exceptional tour level teaching staff. Ex- PGATOUR Member Bryan Gorman and University of Texas Golf Team graduate Hector Diaz Ceballos will assist in all camps this year at Salt Creek GC. Besides having fun in the camps, the juniors will come away with a greatly improved game due to the instructors' enthusiasm and commitment to their students.

Camp Details

This program is designed for boys and girls ages of 7 - 16. The staff is on hand to provide campers with top quality instruction each day. At Nike Golf Schools & Junior Camps we accommodate all skill levels; the junior player just discovering the game, the high school player trying to move up on the team, and the tournament level junior looking to improve his or her tournament results. Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week.
