More Important Camp Details
Nike Golf Camps provides young golfers with the tools to enjoy this great game for a lifetime. Our curriculum is the perfect blend of expert instruction, course play and fun! With an outstanding coaching staff led by Nancy McDaniel, each Nike camper can leave at the end of the week feeling more confident about their game. Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week.
The Day Camp option includes all golf instruction, lunch, and course play. Day campers will be dropped off and picked up at the golf course each day. Beginner campers receive three hours of instruction each day and also participate in a "short course" playing atmosphere.
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.
Metropolitan Golf Links
In the tradition of the great links courses, The Metropolitan Golf Links is wide open. There's even some heather and clusters of native grasses to add to the ambiance. But the fairways are mostly open and the greens are large and receptive so that even the high-handicapper can get around expeditiously. Miller and Bliss have designed the course so that the low-handicapper will have to think his or her way around the course to score well. The Metropolitan Golf Links is strong enough from the back tees to serve the needs of the Cal Bears Golf Program.
