Nike Junior Golf Camps
Tanglewood Park plays host to junior golf camps near Winston-Salem for another great year. Junior golfers can enjoy quality instruction during the week under the direction of our experienced staff of professionals.
FULL DAY CAMP
Full Day Camp runs from 9:00am - 4:00pm and is an excellent opportunity for junior golfers to improve their skills and their course management at the same time. The students in the full day camp enjoy three hours of instruction each morning. This instruction works on all facets of the game and prepares the junior player for the challenges of the course. After a lunch, which is included in the price of the camp, it’s off to play the course. During course play professionals teach strategy, etiquette and course management. The Full Day Camp is designed to create complete golfers and raise their game to the next level.
HALF DAY CAMP
Half Day Camps run from 9:00am - Noon and include fifteen hours of total instruction on the practice range and short game areas. For three hours each day, campers sharpen their skills with strong emphasis 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 junior golfer will see improvement in his or her golf game!
