US Sports Camps and Junior.Club Offer Young Golfers Access to Clubs
USSC has aligned with golf club rental service to provide quality clubs to junior golfers.
March 27, 2017 – US Sports Camps Inc., operators of youth golf camps nationwide, has joined forces with Junior.Club in an effort to provide its young participants access to size-appropriate, brand name golf clubs. Given the high equipment costs in the golf industry, many parents seek alternatives to investing in a new set of youth golf clubs for their children interested in learning the game.
“We field hundreds of requests for rental clubs each year at our junior golf programs,” states Nicholas Brunner, vice president of Nike Junior Golf Camps. “This service fills an important void and allows us to steer customers to a source of quality rental clubs. We are very excited to present this program to our parents and aspiring golfers.”
Junior.Club is a monthly subscription program for Callaway youth golf clubs. Starting at $12/month, customers can choose size-specific clubs given the child’s current height and allows them to size-up once the player has outgrown the set, at no additional cost. This model aims to break down some of the barriers keeping young athletes from participating in the sport.
"Teaming up with US Sports Camps represents a great opportunity to further our mission of introducing more kids to golf,” says CEO of Junior.Club, Jason Black. “Through this partnership, hundreds of kids will receive their first set of clubs. We are hopeful these clubs are the first step in cultivating a lifelong love of the game."
