Our half day programs are designed to create interest and foster development in beginner and intermediate golfers.

Kids were awesome and very respectful of each other

"First of all, my son enjoyed the camp and is continuing to play golf. The one thing that I noticed was all the kids were awesome and very respectful of each other and got along really well. Overall, I liked the camp, it was just a little disorganized on the first day of camp. Besides that, my kid had a great time and I will do it again next summer."
