Nike Junior Golf Camps outside of Atlanta, GA are hosted by Legacy Links/Fox Creek GC. Complete with a full practice facility, Legacy and Fox Creek are ideal facilities for golf instruction and offer two different programs to accommodate all junior golfers, regardless of skill level.
Full Day Camp
Full Day Camps at Legacy Links run Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Campers practice all aspects of their games - putting, chipping, bunker play and full-swing. Morning instruction is followed by lunch and on-course instruction. Lunch is included for full day campers each day.
Half Day Camp
Half Day Camps run Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to Noon and include fifteen hours of total range instruction.
