    A lot of fun

    "I had a lot of fun here!"

    Our son enjoyed the camp

    "I would say the camp director and coach were good. A few of the people helping seemed like they would rather be somewhere else. Our son enjoyed the camp very much. It was fun and the food was great, but it seems like his skill level is about the same or maybe even a little worse. Prior to going he had a method down from his golf coach on how to swing at the ball. After the camp he was just swinging as hard as he could. Method went out the window. I'd like to see solid methods and an opportunity for ALL kids to hit the golf course. Some were taken to a better course on one day, while the others were held back at camp. These students didn't seem to get as much opportunity. But, kids are kids, if they are really into the game they will learn and if not, they might just goof off. So who knows if it could be done any better. I would like to see a better planned schedule and more structured training."

    Helped Me Improve

    "NIKE Golf Camps helped me improve leading up to my high school season. I felt more confident and focused which led to lower scores on the course. Thank you, coaches, for a great experience!"

    Great Results

    "Coach McCurdy was exceptionally positive and encouraging to the children. Coach Krista was also very good with all of the campers and was a great golfer and role model. The two WSU students were also very high quality. This was one of two camps we attended at WSU this summer, and we thoroughly enjoyed everything. This level of quality coaching brings great result."
