Nike Junior Golf Camps
Cider Ridge Golf Club plays host to junior golf camps in Oxford, Alabama for the first time in 2017. Get better and have fun this summer under the direction of our dedicated teaching professionals led by Cider Ridge Director of Golf, Doug Wert.
FULL DAY CAMPS
These camps are an excellent opportunity for junior golfers to improve their skills and course management at the same time. Students in the full day camp enjoy three hours of instruction each morning working on all facets of the game which prepares the junior player for the challenges of the course. After a lunch, it’s off to the first tee for on-course instruction and play.
HALF DAY CAMPS
Camps run Monday-Thursday and include twelve hours of total instruction. For three hours each day, campers sharpen their skills with our dedicated staff. Strong emphasis is placed on the fundamentals—stance, grip, posture, full swing, rules & etiquette, etc. As the week unfolds, campers receive quality short-game instruction and by the last day, each Nike junior golfer will see improvement in his or her golf game!
