Nike Junior Golf Camp in Long Beach, CA is the newest location in Southern California in 2014! Join the dedicated staff of teaching professionals at El Dorado Park Golf Course for a week of instruction geared towards helping every player improve their game regardless of skill level.
Full Day Camp
These camps are designed for boys and girls between the ages of 7-16. The staff is on hand to provide campers with top quality instruction each day. 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. The camps run Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Under the watchful eye of the staff, every morning for three hours campers practice all aspects of their games- putting, chipping, bunker play and full-swing. Morning instruction is followed by lunch and afternoon course play.
Half Day Camp
Our half day programs are designed to create interest and foster development in beginner and intermediate golfers. The camps run Monday to Friday 9:00am-12:00pm and include fifteen hours of total range instruction. Strong emphasis is placed on the fundamentals—stance, grip, posture, full swing, rules & etiquette, etc. As the week unfolds, campers receive quality short-game instruction and by Friday, each Nike junior golfer will see improvement in his or her golf game!

El Dorado Park Golf Course
El Dorado Park Golf Course is a magnificent 18 hole layout that can truly be called a "player's course," due to its expansive layout and numerous water hazards. El Dorado Park Golf Course offers extensive practice facilities and a full service restaurant. In addition, the course was the previous venue of the Queen Mary Open, and is now the site of the prestigious Long Beach Open.Meet your coaching staff
