Highland Park has been the site of many important golf events including one of renowned golfer Bobby Jones’s first victories. The Highland Park facilities - golf course, adjoining tennis club, clubhouse facilities, etc. - are all located in the heart of one of Birmingham's favorite neighborhoods. The Highland Park area has grown significantly over the past decade as the city of Birmingham continues to revitalize the Downtown Area.

So Happy With The Program!
I was extremely impressed with both their handling of camp instruction and supervising children. I could tell immediately my grandsons skill levels have improved. Chris provided valuable feedback on club fitting and areas to have our grandson focus on. I have already recommended this camp to others. Great camp. Great experience. Thanks!

Enjoyed Each Day
Nike Golf Camp was a great experience for my two children. Wonderful, positive coaches that mix fun games with good instruction. My kids enjoyed each day and look forward to returning next year.
My two little ones needed a good introduction to golf and this couldn't have been a more positive experience for them. They came home each day excited about golf and eager to go back the next day.
Other Children Were a Big Distraction
The camp was more of a playground for some of the golfers. You might want to think about raising the age. My son loves golf and has been playing for a while, but some of the other children were a big distraction and the coaches acted as if they were not concerned about teaching them the manners that go along with playing golf!
