Nike Junior Golf Camps
Junior golfers of all ability levels are invited to our junior golf camps in Chapel Hill, NC held at The Preserve at Jordan Lake. Campers receive top-notch instruction during the week under the direction of experienced pro, Andre Panet-Raymond.
Full Day Camps 9:00am - 4:00pm (M-TH)
These camps are an excellent opportunity for junior golfers to improve their skills and their course management at the same time. The students in the full day camp enjoy three hours of instruction each morning. This instruction works on all facets of the game and prepares the junior player for the challenges of the course. After a lunch, which is included in the price of the camp, it’s off to play the course. During course play professionals teach strategy, etiquette and course management. The Full Day Camp is designed to create complete golfers and raise their game to the next level.
Half Day Camps 9:00am - 12:00pm (M-TH)
Half Day Camps run Monday through Thursday from 9:00am-Noon and include 12 hours of total instruction on the practice range and short game areas. For three hours each day, campers sharpen their skills with strong emphasis on the fundamentals—stance, grip, posture, full swing, rules & etiquette, etc. As the week unfolds, campers receive quality short-game instruction and by Thursday, each Nike junior golfer will see improvement in his or her golf game!

Camp ReviewsSubmit a review
(From other NIKE Golf Camp) "Thanks for the director and coaches for helping me improve last week. I definitely learned a lot about my weaknesses and how to work on them during practice! Hopefully I can come back next year and show you how good I am!"
— Mike R. Camper
We'd like a camp in Raleigh!
"The camp very good, and my daughter really enjoyed it. However, we live in Raleigh and it was really just too far. There isn't an option closer, so we probably will not do the camp again. If you can find a closer location to Raleigh, we would definitely consider it."
— Randy O. Parent
