Thank You for Improving my Game
"I thoroughly enjoyed my camp experience. I had a great time golfing with Brian O'Neill, the counselors, and the other golfers. He was very friendly and a great golf instructor. The counselors were also very patient and helpful. I enjoyed the lessons and challenging course play. The other golfers were very friendly and easy to get along with which made it nice because I didn't know anybody. Thank you for improving my game!"

Staff was Awesome
"The Boyne camp that I attended was great. The staff was awesome and I learned so much. They were all so nice and easy to talk to. They were very enthused about the camp and were also willing to answer any questions. They always made sure we were having a good time. I was also able to make some new friends. Four of us are still keeping in touch and we all plan on attending the camp next year at the same time. This camp was an amazing experience."
