More Important Camp Details
This program is designed for boys and girls ages of 7 - 13 (half day) and 9 - 15 (full day & advanced). The staff is on hand to provide campers with top quality instruction each day. At Nike Junior Golf 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.
Full Day Camp
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 course play where the staff teaches strategy, etiquette, shot selection and course management. The camps run Monday-Friday, 9:00am-4:00pm.
Half Day Camp
The camps run Monday-Thursday and include 16 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 the end of camp, each Nike junior golfer will see improvement in their golf game. Lunch and course play is not included.
Players receive individualized instruction with a low 4:1 student to teacher ratio. Emphasis is on short game instruction, tournament preparation, course management techniques, club fitting, and full swing video instruction. Daily course play is designed to elevate players' games to a more competitive level.
A detailed camper registration packet containing check in location, health/release forms, emergency contact info, and a list of things to bring will be emailed to all registered campers in the spring.
If your child does not have their own set of golf clubs, the Tilden Park Golf Course provides them free of charge! Please list in the notes of your registration if you do not have your own set.
