Nike Golf Camps, Santa Clara Golf and Tennis Club

Join experienced Camp Director and LPGA Member, Kim Stevens, for another great summer of junior golf camps in Santa Clara. Located in the south bay area, Santa Clara Golf and Tennis Club offers Full Day, Half Day and Advanced Camps for juniors looking to improve their game.

Full Day Camps

The students in the full day camp enjoy three hours of instruction each morning. This instruction works 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! During course play our staff teaches strategy, etiquette and course management. The Full Day Camp is designed to create complete golfers and raise their game to the next level. Lunch is included in the price of camp, however campers are welcome to bring their own lunch.

Half Day Camps

This program offers campers of all abilities the opportunity to work on and improve every part of their game. A Half Day camper will receive three hours of instruction with emphasis on putting, chipping, bunker play and full swing.

Advanced Camp

Designed for players (ages 10-17) who play competitive golf or who are looking to start playing competitively, our Advanced Players Camp takes the camp experience to the next level. Players receive individualized instruction with a low 4:1 student to teacher ratio. Emphasis is on short game instruction, tournament preparation, course management techniques, club fitting, and full swing video instruction. Daily course play of 9-18 holes is designed to elevate players' games to a more competitive level.

Highlights Include

  • Small group instruction from experienced teaching professionals
  • Three hours of morning instruction focusing on putting, chipping, pitching, and full swing
  • Daily course play with the staff (Full Day/Advanced Camps only)
  • Nike amenity package including a hat, balls, a camp workbook, bag tag and water bottle
  • Safe, fun and healthy learning environment

Camper Reviews

Tyler L.Parent

  • 4/5.
Son loves this camp

"Once again, despite a mix up at the beginning and trying to figure out the new food arrangements. Kim was excellent, positive and flexible. My son loves this camp and the instructors are more a big buddy than just telling them what to do. Well done (again)."

  • 3/5.
Time constraint

"All the campers were not able to complete the 9 holes every day due to time constraints. Some campers got more time than others and it was not fairly distributed. Maybe have fewer campers if time is always a constraint."

Ander M.Parent

  • 4/5.
