Students in the full day camp enjoy three hours of instruction each morning. The morning session focuses on all facets of the game and prepares the junior player for the challenges of the course. After lunch, it's off to the first tee! During course play our staff teaches strategy, etiquette and course management. The Full Day Camp is designed to create complete golfers and raise their game to the next level. Lunch is included in the price of camp, however campers are welcome to bring their own lunch.

Matt Teuscher will be lead instructor for all fall and winter programs at Santa Clara Golf and Tennis Club.
Matt's athletic background began at four years old. He grew up playing soccer and baseball year round until the age of 20. Golf finally became his passion when he entered college and started studying the effects that exercise has on athletic performance. His passion for the human body and healthy lifestyles led him to become a certified personal trainer through the NFPT and eventually earn his bachelors degree in Kinesiology from San Jose State University.
Matt uses his knowledge of the biomechanics of the human body to unlock each individuals potential to become a better golfer and enjoy the game. Being able to pass on his knowledge to someone and have a positive affect on their life is what drives Matt as a coach and an instructor.

Had an amazing time!
"Thank you so much to all of those who made Blake's first golf experience an amazing time. We now have priceless moments on the golf course, just as I had hoped for. Thank you all. We will be back next season."
— Tammy P. Camper
Both camps were great
"Kelly had great time at kim's regular and advance camp. Thanks!!!"
— Mark S. Parent
More Course Play
"Had lots of fun, however I expected play on the course to be much less limited."
— Sina M. Camper
"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!!"
— Tiff T. Parent
Son loves this camp
"Once again, despite a mix up at the beginning and trying to figure out the new food arrangements. Kim was excellent, positive and flexible. My son loves this camp and the instructors are more a big buddy than just telling them what to do. Well done (again)."
— Tyler L. Parent
"The coaches were so nice and my kids are excited to come back again in 2014. Thanks for a great experience."
— Andrew Parent
"All the campers were not able to complete the 9 holes every day due to time constraints. Some campers got more time than others and it was not fairly distributed. Maybe have fewer campers if time is always a constraint."
— Kush N. Parent
"All very good. I would only add, some kind of lessons instead of only practice."
— Ander M. Parent
"My son looked forward to going to this camp. He even learned some techniques that even my experienced golfer husband was impressed with. Thank you."
— Jessica B. Parent
"My daughter enjoy this camp very much and ask me sign her up next year again!!!"
— Abby M. Parent
Learnt a Lot
"Kim is an involved director and our son enjoyed himself and learnt a lot."
