Nike Junior Golf Camps
Enroll in junior golf camp in Irvine, CA at Rancho San Joaquin Golf Course and improve your game this summer! Our programs have become some of the most popular golf camp locations in Southern California.
Full Day Camps
Our camps are a wonderful way for our campers to enjoy a full day of golf. Each day starts with proper warm up stretches and exercises, followed by three hours of instruction on all facets of the game. We break for lunch after morning instruction before heading out for course play. On the golf course, students will work on course management and the shots they learned earlier in the day. Full Day Camps run from 9:00am - 4:00pm. Lunch is provided for full day campers each day.
HALF DAY CAMP
Our Half Day programs are designed to create interest and foster development in players of all ability levels. 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 and by Friday, each Nike junior golfer will see improvement in his or her golf game! The Half Day camps will operate from 9:00am - Noon each day. Lunch will not be included.
