Come join three of Ohio's most respected golf instructors for a week of great fun at Nike Golf Camps outside Columbus, OH at New Albany Links Golf Course.
This program is designed for boys and girls between the ages of 9 and 16. The Nike Camp staff is on hand to provide campers with top quality instruction each day. At Nike Golf Schools & Junior Camps 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 camp runs Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Under the watchful eye of our instructors campers practice all aspects of their games- putting, chipping, bunker play and full-swing. Morning instruction is followed by lunch and then afternoon course play.
