Nike Junior Golf Camps at Skippack Golf Club are proud to be back in 2013. This will be the 13th year that Darryl Lock, PGA Professional, and his assistant professional, Tim Astheimer, have conducted Nike Golf Camps and they are primed for another wonderful summer!
More than 500 different campers have gone through the program at Skippack with 35% returning for additional camps. In addition to a high percentage of return campers, Skippack’s camps have one of the highest number of campers in the Nike US Sports Camps network, while still maintaining a low student to instructor ratio. Darryl and Tim always emphasize that their students should have fun playing this great game while giving them the skills and knowledge to improve their play.
Full Day Camp
Full Day Camps at Skippack Golf Club run Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Every morning for three hours, the campers practice all aspects of their games - putting, chipping, bunker play and full-swing. Morning instruction is followed by lunch and then 9-holes with on-course instruction. The camp has a low camper per instructor ratio to ensure every camper receives attention from the staff.
Half Day Camp
Half Day Camps run Monday thru Friday from 9:00am-Noon and include fifteen hours of total range instruction. For three hours each day, campers sharpen their skills with the Nike golf camp staff, made up of PGA and LPGA professionals.
