After lunch, it's off to the first tee! During course play our staff teaches strategy, etiquette and course management. The Full Day Camp is designed to create complete golfers and raise their game to the next level. Lunch is included in the price of camp, however campers are welcome to bring their own lunch.

Coach Matt Teuscher
Matt joined Silicon Valley Golf Performance Center in 2016 and enjoys instructing students of all levels and ages!View Matt's Bio ⟩
Matt's athletic background began at four years old. He grew up playing soccer and baseball year round until the age of 20. Golf finally became his passion when he entered college and started studying the effects that exercise has on athletic performance. His passion for the human body and healthy lifestyles led him to become a certified personal trainer through the NFPT and eventually earn his bachelors degree in Kinesiology from San Jose State University.
With an extensive background in the fitness industry and a certification through TPI (Titleist Performance Institute), Matt uses his knowledge of the biomechanics of the human body to unlock each individual’s potential to become a better golfer and enjoy the game. Being able to pass on his knowledge to someone and have a positive effect on their life is what drives Matt as a coach and an instructor.
This program is designed for boys and girls between the ages of 7 and 17. The staff is on hand to provide campers with top quality instruction each day. At Nike Junior Golf Camps we accommodate all skill levels, but if your child is brand new to golf, please send an email to Kim Stevens (email@example.com) to let her know. Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week.Show Less See More Camp Details
