Join experienced Camp Director and LPGA Class A Member, Kim Stevens, for another great season 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.

Fall/Winter Weekend Camps

Santa Clara Golf and Tennis is pleased to offer Fall/Winter camp sessions in 2016. These programs run on Saturdays from 1:00 - 4:00pm over the course of six (6) weekends. Each camp day includes 1.5 hours of practice (range, short game, or putting) and 1.5 hours of course play. Session I is 9/17 - 10/22 and Session II is 10/29 - 12/3. Camp tuition is $450 for six (6) class sessions. If players cannot make one or more camp days they can be made up during another weekend session at either Shoreline Links, Santa Clara Golf and Tennis Club, or Summitpointe GC. All participants receive one dozen Nike Golf balls and Nike hat. This program is suited for all skill levels, but if your child is brand new to golf, please send an email to Kim Stevens (kim@svgolfpc.com) before registering.

Full Day Camps (Summer)

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 (Summer)

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 (Summer)

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.

Camper Reviews

Tiff T.Parent

  • 5/5.
Wonderful Experience

My daughter has had multiple lessons with Kim Stevens. Kim is excellent in detecting the tiniest flaws that affect her swing, and even better explaining to the kid in their lingo, and fixing them. My daughter's game has improved tremendously since we met Kim. Her summer camps are a blast as well! On mornings when it was a struggle to wake my child up, on hearing that she has the option to skip camp, she jumps out of bed to go to camp! That says ALOT! We highly recommend Kim Stevens for anyone looking for a great coach!!

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)."

Kush N.Parent

  • 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."

"All very good. I would only add, some kind of lessons instead of only practice."
