Improve your game and have serious fun at
Nike Junior Golf Camps
Our junior golf camps at Riverwalk in San Diego have become some of the best junior golf camps in Southern California with the help and effort of our tremendous, experienced staff of teaching professionals.
Full Day Camp
Fun, fun, fun is the name of the game at Riverwalk Golf Club. The Full Day camps are designed for boys and girls between the ages of 7-17. The Learning Center Professional Teaching Staff is on hand to provide campers with top quality instruction each day. At Nike Junior Golf Camps we accommodate all skill levels; the junior player just discovering the game to the high school player trying to move up on the team. 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 then afternoon course play. FULL DAY CAMPERS ARE REQUIRED TO BRING THEIR OWN SET OF CLUBS!
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!
- Small group instruction with low student/teacher ratio from experienced teaching professionals
- Daily course play with the staff focusing on course management, shot selection, strategy, rules and etiquette (Full Day Camp only)
- Camper amenity package including a Nike hat, drawstring bag, one dozen SRIXON balls, camp workbook, and graduation certificate
- Safe, healthy and fun learning environment

Camp Director Travis Ordonez
Director of Instruction of Riverwalk Golf Club. "I am San Diego homegrown all the way, and have been a regular on this property since the days of Stardust Country Club. Playing, competing, practicing, and taking lessons from past instructors has forged a long lasting bond with this facility."View Travis Ordonez's Bio ⟩
"I started my career in golf at Carmel Mountain Ranch working as an Outside Service Staff member, then onto The Vineyard as an Assistant Professional. After spending three years in Hawaii working a Duke's Canoe Club Waikiki, I moved back home to continue my career in golf. I then pursued positions at Carlton Oaks County Club and Cottonwood Golf Club, gathering experience in management and tournament operations. Then, after close to ten years working in the industry, I found the a dream job just a few short minutes from my home. With any luck I will spend many of the up coming years at Riverwalk Golf Club doing what I love to do."
These programs are designed for boys and girls between the ages of 7 and 17. The staff is on hand to provide campers with top quality instruction each day. At Nike Junior Golf Camps we accommodate all skill levels; the junior player just discovering the game, the high school player trying to move up on the team, and the tournament level junior looking to improve his or her tournament results. Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week.Show Less See More Camp Details

Riverwalk Golf Club
Steeped in a rich tradition of golf legends past, Riverwalk Golf Club offers a classic golfing experience like no other. Formerly known as the Stardust Country Club, the course entertained a myriad of golf's legends while hosting the PGA tour during the 50s and 60s. Now, golfers will once again be treated to the challenge and drama of the original course at the newly reborn Riverwalk. What was once flat now features undulating fairways, waterfalls and well-protected greens. Water comes into play on 13 of the 27 holes with a spectacular waterfall surrounding the green of the signature hole. The San Diego River is a prominent feature of the layout, contributing to the beauty and challenge of the course.
