Each day, participants engage the Impact Golf staff in lessons on putting, greenside scoring shots and full swing and practice the skills learned with competitive games. Students also receive before and after videos so they can watch and review their full swing instruction at any time. This camp runs from 8:30am - 12:00pm, Monday through Thursday, and is open to players of all skill levels, ages 9 - 13.
