Great First Camp Experience
"Coach Mike was so friendly to everyone. I really appreciated it. It was my 7 yr old boy's first Nike camp and he loved it. Coach Mike got along with kids very well and made them feel comfortable."
— Karl B. Parent
Wish they had camp all year!
"I love this camp! It's my second year. Coach Josh and Coach Mike are really warm and took the time to explain to me how to specifically I prove my swing. In the course, they were very attentive and gave great tips to help me learn more about golf. The food at Los Verdes is also great! I wish there had a camp at Los Verdes during the school year."
— Josh W. Camper
So happy with this program!
"I wish camp was available August 8--would have done a third week! The lunch was impeccable. The staff enstills confidence in a non intimidating environment and uplifts skill levels, leaving incredible memories for each and every golfer."
— Harry T. Parent
"My son had an excellent time, he has gone to the camp for 3 years, always gets a lot out of it and loves the instructors, they do an amazing job! He can't wait to attend again. Next year we plan on sending him to Nike day camp at Los Verdes as well as the Nike overnight camp."
— Vince B. Parent
Wish we had more time on the course.
"I think we should get more time to play on the other holes of the course because it helps us adapt and be ready for different playing scenarios."
— Gavin A. Camper
"Great camp! Very well done. Mike Buroza and all of the staff are terrific!"
Only able to use the driving range and putting green
"It would be nice if even the half-day campers were given an opportunity to go out on to the golf course to learn etiquette, etc. Since my son was only at camp in the mornings, he was only able to use the driving range and putting green."
— Ryan R. Parent
Enjoyed the competitions
"My son liked the format of putting, then driving range, and then the option of putting again. He enjoyed the competitions."
— Will D. Parent
Would have been great if the kids
"It would have been great if the kids had more time to play on the course in the afternoons."
Perfect Amount of Instruction and Fun
"I loved that we spent time working on our technique and also played fun games each day. The coaches were always fun and taught me a lot during camp. Thanks to everyone for a fun week!"
— Pamela M. Day Camper
"My son loved this camp! I wasn't sure how he would do at an all day golf camp, given that he only golfs for about 2 hours at a stretch, but he did great. We absolutely loved everything about the camp - the location, the instruction, the improvement in his game, the kids - we will definitely be back next year! Great job!"
— Alex L. Parent

— Abby F. Parent
"My son so thoroughly enjoyed his week of golf camp that we signed him up for additional days. It was a great program at a beautiful facility, Los Verdes Golf Course. I think that it is very likely that we'll use the program again next summer. Thanks for a great experience for my son."
