Camp Details

The Nike Junior Golf Camp at Duke University focuses not only on instructional fundamentals, but our camp is unique with the techniques and strategies that our staff will teach each student. While our philosophy of learning is rooted in the physical fundamentals, we prioritize training strategies that each can utilize for long-term sustained improvement in his or her game. This program is designed for boys and girls between the ages of 13 and 18.

Permeating throughout all sessions will be core pillars designed to provide clarity, belief, and confidence… the elements that are most vital to achieving sustained improvement in scoring levels. Training in areas such as mental management, course management, short game management, and targeted physical training equip each student with the skills to successfully translate their physical skill levels into lower scores.
