Nike Junior Golf Camps
Nike Junior Golf Camps is proud to announce the return of our camps at Baiting Hollow Golf Club in Suffolk County for another great summer. Director Tim McAuley has hosted junior golf camps on Long Island for many years and looks forward to offering full and half day camps this summer.
FULL DAY CAMPS
This option runs Monday through Thursday from 9:00am - 3:00pm and is an excellent opportunity for junior golfers to improve their skills and their course management at the same time. Full day campers enjoy three hours of instruction each morning focusing on all facets of the game and prepares the junior player for the challenges of the course. After lunch, which is included in the price of the camp, it’s off to play the course. During course play professionals teach strategy, etiquette and course management. This program is designed to create complete golfers and raise their game to the next level.
HALF DAY CAMPS
Half Day Camps run Monday through Thursday from 9:00am - Noon and include twelve hours of total instruction on the practice range and short game areas. Each day, campers sharpen their skills with strong emphasis on the fundamentals—stance, grip, posture, full swing, rules & etiquette, etc. As the week unfolds, campers receive quality short-game instruction and by Thursday, each Nike junior golfer will see improvement in his or her golf game!
