Improve your game and have serious fun at
Nike Junior Golf Camps

Get better this summer at our junior golf camps at Ruffled Feathers in Lemont, IL. Join longtime Camp Director and one of Golf Digest's Best Young Teachers in America, Jake Thurm, for a great week of golf instruction and fun!

Half Day Camps

Our half day programs are designed to create interest and foster development in beginner and intermediate golfers. The camps run Monday to Friday 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and include fifteen hours of total range instruction. 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 Friday, each Nike junior golfer will see improvement in his or her golf game!  

Highlights Include
  • Instruction from dedicated golf professionals with low student/teacher ratio
  • Three hours of daily practice with the staff covering all facets of the game; putting, chipping/pitching, full-swing
  • Camper amenity package including a Nike hat, drawstring bag, one dozen SRIXON balls, camp workbook, and graduation certificate
  • A healthy and positive learning environment designed to help every camper get better!

Nike Junior Golf Camps Ruffled Feathers

Ruffled Feathers Golf Club

Designed by the legendary Pete Dye and his son, P.B. Dye, to blend seamlessly with its breathtaking natural surroundings on the former site of verdant farmland, Ruffled Feathers' par-72, 6,898-yard championship layout is as aesthetically beautiful as it is imaginative. Majestic trees frame lush, exquisitely-sculpted fairways and manicured greens, with 114 beguiling bunkers, a plethora of spectacular water features and gorgeous native wetlands creating both strategic diversity and a visually stunning backdrop for golf.
