Camp ReviewsSubmit a review
The experience was amazing
"Brad Goetsch was amazing with our son. I have nothing but wonderful things to say. Our son has down syndrome and he FULLY participated in the camp. The whole staff were fully inclusive with him, yet supported the other campers as they needed. Our son walked away with a greater passion and understanding for the game and has continued to improve. Brad communicated with me (mom) when appropriate or if I had questions. Wilderness Ridge was an excellent golf location and teaching facility and Chris Thompson was a FANTASTIC instructor. Seriously, the experience was amazing for our son and for us."

Received Lots of Attention
"My daughter had a great time and wants to go back next year. She is not a low handicap golfer and worried that everyone would be so much better than her and she would be left behind but it was just the opposite. She received lots of attention and they helped her improve her scores. She also enjoyed the interaction with other golfers and the fun things they did through out the week."
— Andrew B. Parent
Thank You for Everything
