Full day campers enjoy three hours of instruction each morning. Instruction focuses on all facets of the game and prepares the junior player for the challenges of the course. After lunch, it’s off to the first tee for course play. During course play our staff teaches strategy, rules/etiquette, and course management. Our Full Day Camp is designed to create complete golfers and raise their game to the next level. This program runs from 9:00am - 4:00pm daily and is open to golfers ages 9 - 16.
