Nike Junior Golf Camps
The Club at Irish Creek is proud to offer junior golf camps near Charlotte, North Carolina for another great summer. Join our staff of experienced professionals for a week of great golf instruction and fun!
FULL DAY CAMPS
Our full day camps are a wonderful way for our campers to enjoy a full day of golf. Each day starts with proper warm up, followed by three hours of instruction on all facets of the game. We break for lunch after the morning instruction before heading out for course play. On the golf course, students work on course management and the shots they learned earlier in the day. Full Day Camps run from 9:00am - 4:00pm each day. Lunch is included for full day campers each day.
HALF DAY CAMPS
Our Half Day camps are designed to pique the interest of potential new golfers and give experienced golfers the instruction they need to improve. These camps give the same quality instruction our full day camps provide. Each day starts with proper warm up stretches and exercises, followed by three hours of small group instruction. Half Day Camps run from 9:00am - 12:00pm each day. Lunch is NOT included.

The Club at Irish Creek
Carved into the verdant rolling terrain, the Davis Love III Signature Golf Course takes full advantage of the mature forest and pristine 400-acre lake. In fact, 16 of the 18 holes and the six-hole short course feature a water view. Davis created the course on land previously home to Kannapolis Country Club, developing a masterful new layout that combines the best of the old property with adjacent land that wanders amidst creeks, hardwoods, and pines.

Saw Immediate Improvement
"My kids saw immediate improvement during the Nike Camp week. They also lacked some confidence going into the session and came out with more excitement for the game and a strong sense of personal confidence."
Would like a written review
"My grandkids are really early beginners...However, I think it would be helpful to have a discussion/list of areas were we need improvement/learning for the child...Thanks."
