Our curriculum is the perfect blend of expert instruction, course play and fun off-course activities. With the experience and passion of coaches Zambri and Wurzer and their staff, 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.

Wonderful Experience!

"Our son had a wonderful experience. He loved the coaches and thier teaching methods. My husband took him golfing after the camp and my son even taught my husband a few things and helped him improve his game!"

Helped Me Improve

"This camp helped me improve in various ways and therefore made me enjoy golf more. By having instruction time in the morning and then time to actually get out and play 18 holes in the afternoon, the whole golf experience was embodied which is exactly what I came for. The environment was warm as well and although I am pretty shy, I felt safe around the counselors/instructors and campers."
