Improve your game and have serious fun at
Nike Junior Golf Camps

Our junior golf camps in Orange County, CA at Lake Forest Golf and Practice Center are dedicated to helping juniors improve their skills, enjoy golf, and increase their passion for the game.

Full Day Camps

The staff is on hand to provide campers with top quality instruction each day. Under the watchful eye of the staff, campers practice all aspects of their games - putting, chipping, bunker play and full-swing. The morning session is followed by lunch and afternoon course play with the staff. Full Day Camps run from 10:00am - 4:00pm each day. Lunch is provided for full day campers each day. 

Half Day Camps

Our half day programs are designed to create interest and foster development in beginners and intermediate golfers. Strong emphasis is placed on the fundamentals—stance, grip, posture, full swing, rules & etiquette, etc. As the week unfolds, campers receive quality short-game instruction, each Nike junior golfer will see improvement in his or her golf game. Half Day Camps run from 10:00am - 1:00pm each day.

Advanced Camps

Designed for players (ages 10-17) who play competitive golf or who are looking to start playing competitively, our Advanced Players Camp takes the camp experience to the next level. Players receive individualized instruction with a low 4:1 student to teacher ratio. Emphasis is on short game instruction, tournament preparation, and course management techniques. Daily course play is designed to elevate players' games to a more competitive level.

Highlights Include
  • Small group instruction with low student/teacher ratio from experienced teaching professionals
  • Daily course play with the staff (Full Day and Adv Camp only)
  • Camper amenity package including a Nike hat, drawstring bag, one dozen SRIXON balls, camp workbook, and graduation certificate
