Nike Golf Camp Poppy Hills

Poppy Hills Golf Course

Poppy Hills is the first golf course to be owned and operated by a regional golf association in the country. Built in 1986 by Robert Trent Jones Jr., Poppy Hills hosted the PGA Tour’s AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am from 1991 through 2009. Poppy Hills underwent an extensive renovation beginning in March of 2013 centered around water conservation, primarily by improving irrigation and drainage. Jones returned to Poppy with his Robert Trent Jones II design firm, this time creating a firm, fast and fun course that unfolds seamlessly through the stunning Del Monte Forest.

    INSTRUCTION WAS FANTASTIC

    "Since becoming a competitive high school player, I had the desire to push myself further.  Attending the Nike Advanced Camp and Short Game School at Pebble Beach was the best thing for me and my golf game. The instruction was fantastic and the courses were beautiful and extremely challenging.  Perfect preparation for my upcoming tournaments."
