Iowa Hawkeye Men's Golf to Host Nike Junior Golf Camp this Summer
The University of Iowa men’s golf coaching staff aligns with Nike Junior Golf Camps to offer a boys overnight and commuter camp in Iowa City.
March 4, 2019 – University of Iowa Men’s Golf, led by Head Coach Tyler Stith and Assistant Coach Charlie Hoyle, have agreed to run a summer golf camp under the Nike Junior Golf Camp banner this summer. The alliance brings together one of the most recognized universities in the Midwest with the largest youth camp operator in the world.
“Working with Tyler and Charlie at Iowa is exciting,” states Jason West, senior vice president of US Sports Camps. “You have quality, Division I golf coaches who are well-versed in junior camps, coupled with daily access to a championship golf course and state-of-the-art practice facilities right next to campus. I think this has the makings of a great overall experience for camp attendees this summer.”
Charlie Hoyle, who joined the Iowa staff as the assistant men’s coach in July of 2018, sees the camps as a great opportunity for motivated young players to get better. “The Iowa men’s golf program is excited to join forces with Nike camps,” said Hoyle. “This camp will offer a phenomenal learning experience for the kids. Utilizing our fantastic facilities, the campers will gain great insights into the game of golf and improve every aspect of their game as well.”
The junior golf camp at University of Iowa will offer a 3 night/4 day overnight and commuter camp for boys, ages 10 – 18. Camp dates are June 20 – 23, 2019. Overnight participants reside on campus in Iowa’s newest dorms and meals are served in the dining commons. The day camp, designed for local junior golfers, runs 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and includes all golf instruction, lunch, and course play.
All golf activities take place at Finkbine Golf Course. Finkbine is the University of Iowa Athletics Department championship golf course and is home to the Men’s and Women’s Collegiate Teams. Finkbine has hosted numerous NCAA, amateur, and professional events. Campers also have access to the new state-of-the-art James M. Hoak Family Golf Complex, the exclusive home of Iowa golf. The facility features the 5,000 square foot Transamerica Performance Studio, highlighted by five indoor-to-outdoor hitting stations, V-1 Video Swing Analysis and Trackman technology.
