Nike Junior Golf Camps
Nike Junior Golf Camps is proud to offer our newest camps in Providence, Rhode Island in 2018. Join Rhode Island PGA's 2013 Teacher of the Year, Bob Tramonti, for a week of fun and golf instruction.
FULL DAY CAMPS
These camps are the perfect opportunity for junior golfers to improve their skills and their course management abilities 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, it’s off to the first tee for course play! Full Day Camps at Triggs Memorial are designed to create complete golfers and raise their game to the next level while having fun!
HALF DAY CAMPS
Camps run Monday to Friday and include fifteen hours of total range instruction. For three hours each day, campers sharpen their skills with our dedicated staff. 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!

Triggs Memorial Golf Course
Triggs Memorial was created by renowned course designer, Donald Ross. Ross designed and constructed a number of world class golf courses in Rhode Island. Those located in Rhode Island include Wannamoisett, Warwick, Metacomet, Rhode Island Country Club and Triggs Memorial. However, Triggs is the only true public course designed by Ross.
Triggs Memorial Golf Course was conceived by Ross in the early 1930's and opened in the spring of 1932. As is typical of many Ross designs, Triggs Memorial is considered an exceptional layout featuring long difficult par 4's, "reachable" par 5's, and spectacular par 3's. The design follows the natural contours of the site with moderate and relatively gentle changes in elevation and small strategically bunkered greens. Ross brilliantly used the existing topography to create a masterpiece of character peppered with illusions that affect strategy and course management.
Triggs Memorial Golf Course is located in the heart of the Providence west side (Mount Pleasent neighborhood) in what is now a densely populated area. Originally, the course was built on the 140 acre Obadiah Brown Farm. An elementary school, high school and Rhode Island College stand on it's borders today.
