The overnight camp includes course play, meals, overnight accommodations, evening activities, and golf instruction. For the duration of the week, campers reside in the dormitories on campus in adjacent rooms to the staff. Each day, campers are transported to local golf courses including Cottonwood Golf Club and Mission Bay Golf Course for instruction and afternoon course play.

For any players who do not wish to stay overnight, we also offer a limited number of day camp spaces. The day camp includes instruction and on-course play only (lunch is not included). Day campers will be dropped off and picked up at the campus each day. This camp is open to boys and girls, ages 10-17, and runs approximately 8:00AM - 5:00PM each day (Please note: Sunday and Thursday will have different arrival and departure times due to check-in/check-out).

This camp/clinic is not owned, operated, or otherwise controlled by the University of San Diego.

This camp is open to any and all entrants and is only limited by age, gender, and number.

Carlton Oaks Country Club

It is on the golf course that Carlton Oaks truly dazzles. The 18-hole championship Dye-designed course has golf roots that date back to 1958. However, the course was totally renovated by Perry Dye, son of Paul B. “Pete” Dye, in 1989. Pete Dye became a legend in the field of golf course design and construction and received the 2008 World Golf Hall of Fame lifetime achievement award. Dye Designs has established a worldwide reputation for creating unique, challenging and environmentally sensitive golf courses that are always fun to play. Carlton Oaks is certainly no exception.

Mission Bay Golf Course

Mission Bay Golf Course and Practice Center is an 18-hole executive course designed by Ted Robinson, former president of the American Society of Golf Course Architects. Measuring 2,719 yards, it sits on 46 acres in the heart of the City. It is the only golf course in San Diego with night lighting.

Located in the community of Pacific Beach, Mission Bay Golf Course is an 18-hole, par 58 executive course featuring four par-four holes and 14 par-three holes.

It is where Tiger Woods won a Junior World title.
