Full Day Camp
Full Day Camp runs from 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. and is an excellent opportunity for junior golfers to improve their skills and their course management at the same time. Campers enjoy three hours of instruction each morning. After a lunch, which is included in the price of the camp, it’s off to play the course. During course play our coaches 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 Camp
Half Day Camp runs from 9:00 a.m. - Noon and includes twelve 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 instruction and by the last day each junior golfer will see improvement in his or her golf game!
