Dogwood Golf Club
Dogwood's original nine holes was designed and built in 1968, with the second nine added around 1971. At 6,501 yards, Dogwood is an "equalizer" course, meaning bad shots are not severely penalized, there are ample opportunities for recovery shots, but subtle greens make scoring a challenge. The tree-lined 18 Hole, Par 72 course is a true test of the game and a golfer’s abilities.

Want to Come Back!
"I had a fun time at the Nike Camp. There was valuable group instruction on the range as well as individual help for my own game. I definitely loved the camp and want to come back again!"

Thanks so Much
"My son Connor had a fantastic time--he was a first time golfer, and everyone made him feel very comfortable. Great week of golf! Thanks so much!"
Need More Instruction on Club Professions
"The camp and instruction and play time on the course was as expected. One thought going forward is for older kids who are in camp, might be of interest to have a short education on what a golf club pro and greenskeeper does to maintain quality of the club experiences."
