Camp Details

This program is designed for boys and girls between the ages of 10 and 18. Whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced level golfer, our world-class instruction and coaching provides junior golfers with the necessary skills to compete and win. These camps offer training and real competition scenarios that develop every part of your game. During the week, campers work on short game, putting, approach shots, course management, and will test their new skills in weekly competitions and 18-hole tournaments. Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week.

    Great camp!

    "I made improvements in both my full swing and my short game; I really enjoyed that I was able to play everyday and get better, even though it was really hot. I just wish the counsellors would pay better attention to the other campers due to their immaturity and violations of true golf etiquette."

    Should've gone to advanced camp

    "When signing up for this camp, they told us it was appropriate for my skill level. It would have been more appropriate for me to go to an advanced level camp and wish that had been made clear. Better screening upon registration might help."

    Longer Camp Please!

    "A full week camp would be great (Sunday - Saturday). My son would have loved more time and the weekday rush hour made pick up tough. A weekend drop off and pick up would be better."
