Nike Junior Golf Camps
Join Nike Camp Director, Brian King PGA, just outside of Chicago this summer for an incredible week of golf. Hosted at Prairie Landing Golf Club, this program provides players with the tools to shoot lower scores!
HALF DAY CAMPS
Our half day programs are designed to create interest and foster development in beginner and intermediate golfers. The camps run Monday to Friday 9:00am-12:00pm and include fifteen hours of total range instruction. Strong emphasis is placed on the fundamentals—stance, grip, posture, full swing, rules & etiquette, etc. As the week unfolds, campers receive quality short-game instruction and by Friday, each Nike junior golfer will see improvement in his or her golf game!
For the first session of the summer, we offer a four-day camp option (Tuesday-Friday) for $235 for participants whose last day of school is on Monday, June 5th. If you would like to sign up for the four-day camp, please call 800-645-3226 and register over the phone.
SHORT GAME CAMPS
Nike Short Game Camps give aspiring young players the competitive advantage. This program is based on an advanced player training model designed to educate and build confidence on critical shots inside of 125 yards. In addition to honing skills in putting, chipping, pitching and sand play, participants also learn strategy and application via on-course training. Like the full day camp, Flightscope, V1, Edufii and Boditrak are used to asses each player and enhance the learning experience. A low student-teacher ratio, top flight facilities and detailed lesson plan make the Nike Short Game Camp an essential experience for players looking to excel in high school, college and beyond.
- Hands-on instruction from recognized golf instructors with a low student-to-teacher ratio
- Daily use of the Prairie Landing Practice Center including two practice holes
- Camper amenity package including a Nike hat, drawstring bag, one dozen SRIXON balls, camp workbook, and graduation certificate
- A healthy and positive learning environment designed to help every camper get better

Prairie Landing Golf Club
With meticulously maintained greens and fairways, Prairie Landing is designed with the player in mind. From wide open par 5’s to narrow par 3’s, the course is a fair challenge with a rewarding landscape. Peppered with various wetlands, mounds, and bunkers, Prairie Landing is no walk in the park. The alluring landscape could be considered a hazard itself. Prairie Landing Golf Course is a prairie links style 18-hole course designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. The course has been rated 4.5 Stars by Golf Digest for “Best Places to Play”, one of only 25 Illinois courses to receive such a rating. The Prairie Landing Practice Center, arguably the finest of its kind in the Chicago area, includes grass and artificial tees, two putting greens, chipping area, and two regulation par fours.
Camp ReviewsSubmit a review
"LOVED LOVED LOVED IT! Even though I grew up with a family of avid golfers, my son was a bit young and had had no experience with golf prior to the camp. Everyone made him feel welcomed and was eager to teach him not just golf but safety! At the end of each day, he was able to tell me exactly what they had worked on and what he had learned. I couldn't thank the staff enough for the patience they had shown him and the motivation to keep learning. Thank you!"
