Camp ReviewsSubmit a review
Great Introductory Camp!
"I think it was very fun I think anyone that is a beginner to golf should try it."
— Cameron W. Camper
"Connor really improved and had a great time! He wants to come back next year!"
— Connor F. Parent
Looking forward to next year!
"My child really enjoyed his experience this year and is looking forward to coming back next year!"
— Mindy S. Parent
Lack of instruction
"My son who is a beginner golfer felt he was not given any instruction, but rather just put out on the course. I was told that it was ok if he had limited prior experience. Other boys in his same group told their mother the same in terms of lack of instruction."
— Tommy Z. Parent
Love the Coaches
"The camp allows me time to focus on small things that need attention - I always learn something new to try and I love the coaches and staff helping me become a better golfer. See you again next year!"
— Timothy S. Junior Overnight Camper
Able to Make New Friends
"The Shawnee camp that I attended was great. The staff was awesome and I learned so much. They were all so nice and easy to talk to. They were very enthused about the camp and were also willing to answer any questions. They always made sure we were having a good time. I was also able to make some new friends. Four of us are still keeping in touch and we all plan on attending the camp next year at the same time. This camp was an amazing experience."
— Kevin V. Junior Overnight Camper

— Jared F. Overnight Camper
"I was astounded to take my 14-year old son golfing AFTER your 4-day camp --- he outplayed the 3 adults who accompanied him, retaining the ball he started with for 18 holes, playing at par on a few holes, and 1-2 above par on all others, consistently. His game has radically improved! Thanks....."
— Susan Q. Parent
