Nike Golf Schools & Junior Camps provide young golfers with the tools to enjoy this great game for a lifetime. Our curriculum is the perfect blend of expert instruction, course play and fun off-course activities. With two outstanding coaches in Dan Wesley and Scott Moyer, each Nike camper can leave at the end of the week feeling more confident about their game. Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week.
The Overnight fee includes all golf instruction, green fees, evening activities, housing and meals. The Day Camp option includes all golf instruction, lunch, and course play. Day campers will be dropped off and picked up at the golf course each day.
Campers are supervised 24 hours a day. The staff lives in the dormitories with the campers and participates in evening activities. Drugs, alcohol and tobacco are strictly prohibited, and constitute, along with general misconduct, grounds for dismissal from camp without a refund.
Nike Golf Schools and Jr. Camps does not provide transportation to and from airports, bus depots or train stations. The packet we send to registered campers in the spring offers suggestions on shuttle services for each specific camp.
A detailed camper registration packet containing check in location, health/release forms, emergency contact info, and a list of things to bring will be emailed to all registered campers in the Spring.
Wild Wood Country Club
Wild Wood Country Club is located 20 minutes south of downtown Rochester in beautiful Rush, NY. This facility enjoys a Blue Tee course rating of 73.4 and 146 slope, on par with the best private clubs in the area. Water comes in to play on every hole (on the back nine) except the 10th and 18th. The course rewards you for choosing the right club and staying in the fairways. Nike campers will have morning instruction, lunch, and course play at Wild Wood three days out of the camp week.
Mill Creek Golf Club
This land on which Mill Creek Golf Club sits, plays on, off and around the highest point in Monroe County with views to the east of the Rochester skyline and the rolling hills of the Finger Lakes to the south. Rochester’s newest 18 hole championship course integrates the spirit of the unique glacial drumlin that bisects 320 acres of forested rolling hills, windswept fescues, rock creeks and waterfalls.
