Camp ReviewsSubmit a review
"Mike is an amazing coach for the kids. He has the perfect balance of having fun, discipline, and learning the game. My son did the camp last year and was so excited to see that Mike was teaching it again."
— Ryder Parent
"This camp was for beginning golfers, not for intermediate level. I was bored."
"Great experience! The instruction, experience, and location was extraordinary. We are hoping to repeat it next summer if there is a golf camp offered for 16 and 17 year olds."
— Lindsay G. Parent
Coming Back Next Year
"My son has done several golf camps around Pierce/King County. This camp was his favorite ever. He learned so much and the instructors gave them personal attention & correction to make them better players. He really enjoyed the friendly contests and competition. We are coming back next year for sure."
