This program will be lead by Camp Director and experienced teaching professionals from The Reserve. Our staff is eager to help all junior golfers improve and become more passionate for the game of golf.
Our half-day programs are designed to create interest and foster development in golfers of all ability levels (ages 7-16). The camps run Monday to Thursday and include twelve hours of total golf instruction. For three hours each day, campers sharpen their skills with the staff, made up of experienced PGA teaching professionals. Strong emphasis is placed on the fundamentals—stance, grip, posture, full swing, rules & etiquette, etc. As the week unfolds, campers receive quality short-game instruction and by Friday, each Nike junior golfer will see improvement in his or her golf game!

The Reserve Vineyards and Golf Club
The Reserve Vineyards and Golf Club opened for play in 1997 and immediately distinguished itself as the region's premiere golf destination, boasting two courses with enough juice in the layouts to challenge some of the game's greatest players. From 1998 to 2002 The Reserve hosted Peter Jacobsen's Fred Meyer Challenge, the country's largest non-sanctioned PGA Tour event. A veritable "who's who" of golf icons - Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Fred Couples, Phil Mickelson and Sergio Garcia - participated in the Pacific Northwest's marquee golf event.Meet your coaching staff
