Nike Golf Schools & Junior Camps at WSU and Univ of Idaho offer each junior golfer the same opportunity to succeed, regardless of their starting point. Our program offers a positive and fun learning environment, one in which campers can thrive under the direction of motivated and highly skilled instructors. Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week.
Participants are housed on campus at the University of Idaho in Moscow, ID. The rooms are doubles and roommate requests are honored. The staff lives in the dorms with the campers to provide supervision throughout the week. Meals are enjoyed in the dining commons just as if the campers were students of the University.

Palouse Ridge Golf Club at WSU
Stunning links style course runs adjacent to the WSU campus and follows the natural contours of the Palouse's trademark rolling hills. Palouse Ridge is home to the WSU men's and women's golf teams. In 2009, Palouse Ridge was ranked the #2 "Best New Course" by Golf Digest and Golfweek.
