I will surely remember it for the rest of my life

"I have been to many camps in the past and honestly this has been my favorite one yet! I got to meet many great people and learned some great new skills both on and off the golf course. The only minuscule factor about the camp that I was not completely fond about were the dorm rooms. The lack of air conditioning and air circulation was a bit frustrating, but again this is the only flaw in my experience. It was very sad having to leave at the conclusion of the camp, but I will surely remember it for the rest of my life."

Nike Golf Camp was amazing

"Nike Golf Camp was amazing. I learned so much that will be helping me in practice as I tryout for my high school golf team. In all honesty the camp was as fun as it was because of the counselors. They were super encouraging and made learning hard things fun. I would for sure go back to this camp again!"

Eddie A.Camper

  • 3/5.
Felt very rushed

"Although the camp was great, we were very rushed. Out of all of the days we were only able to complete 1 full round of golf. Secondly, most dinners were rushed/short due to there not being enough time provided on the schedule in between the end of the day's golf match and the night activity."
