Enjoying Golf after camp
" My daughter walked away enjoying golf!!"
— Alex R. Parent
more days please
"The coaches kept everything light and fun. My son was bummed it was only 4 days."
— John B. Parent
"I learned a lot about golf, the coaches were very nice, and the course was very good!"
— Finn B. Parent
All in all great camp
"Parent: Just how friendly, relaxed, and easily accessible everything is to get around. Size and set-up of space (close to parking, bathrooms/water/AC golf center, and covered area for driving range) makes it well suited for kids in the hot summer conditions. Luke: Getting better at putting, learning how to hold the club correctly so I could perform better shots, seeing how far I could hit it, and that I hit it further by first relaxing."
— Jenny J. Parent
"I can see having an additional coach out there being helpful in providing the kids with more individualized instruction at this stage in their learning. Overall the coaches did a great job!"
— Ron P. Parent
"This was Joey’s first time experiencing golf, and it was great! The club staff and coaches were fantastic and friendly. Camp was well organized and set up in a way where kids were working in small groups with coaches so they were always able to play and not just sit around. When breaks were given coaches would often be talking to the kids as well as the parents. This was a great experience!"
— Julie S. Parent
"Great gifts and my child seem to really enjoy the camp. Thank you."
