Camp Director Chad Phillips
Chad is a Performance Coach with Game Like Training (GLT) Golf Academy, located at Bridgemill Athletic Club in Canton, GA. An accomplished player who competed on the junior, collegiate, and professional levels, Phillips has been coaching golf for more than 25 years.View Chad Phillips's Bio ⟩
Phillips’ coaching philosophy is based on simplifying the fundamental movements of the swing, and is complimented by his unique understanding of how players with varying levels of experience feel these movements. The combination inspired the CP4 System, a high-performance training system proven to generate lasting results with many of his students, including nationally ranked juniors and NCAA Division 1 and 2 players.
Prior to joining GLT, Chad worked as a Master Instructor with Bann Lynch Golf under Steve Bann and Dale Lynch, whose notable list of students include PGA Tour winners Stuart Appleby, Geoff Ogilvy, Aaron Baddeley, and Robert Allenby. A TPI Level 1, TrackMan Operator Level 1 and 2, and Nike NG360 certified instructor, Phillips has been nominated for Golf Digest magazine’s Best Young Teachers list.
These programs are designed for boys and girls between the ages of 7 and 16 (vary by program). 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

BridgeMill Athletic Club
In a city known for great golf courses, BridgeMill Athletic Club has a championship course considered phenomenal in its design and conditioning. Designed by Desmond Muirhead, designer of Mission Hills (home of the LPGA Nabisco Championship) and consultant to Jack Nicklaus on Muirfield Village, and Georgia’s own 1987 Masters Champion Larry Mize, BridgeMill opened in late 1998 as one of the most well-balanced tests of golf in Atlanta. The par-72 layout was masterfully carved into the rolling terrain and plays to 7,110 yards from the championship tees.

"My son had the absolute best week! The coaching staff was great, the other campers were supportive and it was a great experience. The first thing he said when I picked him up was, I'm doing this again next year!"
"Thanks for such an awesome camp! The day camp was perfect for my summer schedule and my golf game should be sharp for the upcoming high school season!"
"My son enjoyed attending this golf camp and his game greatly improved. The instructors did a great job."
— Greg L. Parent
"Only complaint was that when the older boys played the course in the afternoons, I wish they had had more time with the pros....seemed they spent more time with the younger kids. Otherwise I thought it was a great camp!"
