The camps run Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Campers practice all aspects of their games during morning instruction - putting, chipping, bunker play and full-swing. The morning session is followed by lunch and afternoon course play.

The camps run Monday to Friday 9:00am-12:00pm and include fifteen hours of total range instruction.
