Camp Director Kim Stevens
Kim Stevens has been a Nike Golf Camp Director since 2002 and is an LPGA Class A Member. Her programs have become some of the most popular golf camps in the Bay Area.View Kim Stevens's Bio ⟩
Safety and fun are the reasons the camps grow each year. Kim personally trains her staff to ensure the instruction is consistent and purposeful. She has been teaching golf to adults and juniors of all levels for over 15 years and started playing golf herself at the age of four.
Coach Shelley Earl
Shelley Earl is an LPGA Teaching Professional and assists with the Nike Junior Golf Camps at Shoreline Links.View Shelley's Bio ⟩
Shelley’s teaching career was born out of her love of sports, natural athletic ability and her desire to help others reach their potential. She worked for several years in the Napa Valley school system as a Physical Education teacher and later migrated toward the areas of Health and Fitness and Life Coaching.
Golf came into Shelley’s life in 1997, when, after a few lessons, she felt the call of competition too strong to ignore. As an accomplished amateur, Shelley finished out her playing career by qualifying for the USGA Women’s Senior Amateur National Championship. Having achieved her competitive goals, she turned to her passion—teaching—and is an LPGA Teaching Professional.
Aha! is the moment of transition from the often-confusing shadow of any learning process to the light of understanding. That is the moment Shelley has lived for since she discovered her passion for teaching over 25 years ago. That “light bulb” moment and the joy that accompanies it, for both the student and teacher, are unmatched in her eyes.

Camp ReviewsSubmit a review
great camp and new passion for golf!
"My 6-year-old daughter Alyssa had never played golf. She was mad that we subscribed her for a golf camp instead of Ballet or Rhythmic Gymnastics this summer. I took her (from Beijing) to the beautiful Shoreline Links Golf Course to meet Kim a couple of days before the camp. When we met, Kim showed her magic side to cope with young kids. Alyssa told Kim she couldn’t wait and wanted to immediately start the camp. Alyssa liked all three instructors from the camp and asked me to book her golf instruction courses when back in China and camp here next year. Kim ignites kids passions for golf!"

First time golfer!
"Very punctual, nice golf course, patient teachers - this was the first time my son played golf, and every day he came back full of stories about his experiences. It is great when a camp builds love and enjoyment for a new area, that is precisely what we as parents look for."
— Mridula P. Parent0
"My daughter has had multiple lessons with Kim Stevens. Kim is excellent in detecting the tiniest flaws that affect her swing, and even better explaining to the kid in their lingo, and fixing them. My daughter's game has improved tremendously since we met Kim. Her summer camps are a blast as well! On mornings when it was a struggle to wake my child up, on hearing that she has the option to skip camp, she jumps out of bed to go to camp! That says ALOT! We highly recommend Kim Stevens for anyone looking for a great coach!!"

Perfect match for all abilities
"The coaching was excellent, my son attended many different and specialized sports camps over the years, and this camp is pretty special to him. He says that the counselors were all very good, adjusting the lesson for each child to his/her ability."
— Joni H. Parent
"Kim Stevens is an amazing camp director. She shared a very helpful Youtube video before the camp sessions started to make sure that the forms were filled out properly and also to inform the campers and parents about the upcoming camp days. She also answered emails very promptly. Her staff is also very knowledgable, helpful and totally great with kids. I can highly recommend the Shoreline Golf Camp. Thank you!"
