Summer Golf Camps - Just a Putt Away!


If you're a kid or teen looking to become the next Tiger Woods, go to one of the many summer golf camps. Individual golf camps are all around. So too are national camps like US Sports Camps with Nike Junior Golf Camp programs all over the country. The advantage to a good golf program: you'll improve your golfing skills while playing on some of the best courses: think Pebble Beach!

Summer options

There are two types of youth golfing camps, residential camp and day camp. To find one locally you may want to consult with your school coach or golfing friends. If that's not working, or you're not excited by the choices, take a look online.

Camp profile: Nike Summer Golf Camp

In 1994 Nike Junior golf camps began. Twelve years later Nike runs both golf day camps and residential camps throughout the country. Day camps are not run like most; meaning you're not dropping your son or daughter off to attend either the ½ day or full day program for day care services. Instead, your child will work with instructors and focus on golf to become a better player. (Fun too)

For a different kind of experience, kids and teens 10 to 18 years may want to attend a residential Nike golf camp nearby. These overnight golf camps are coed, although about 80% of the campers are boys. Camp runs for 5 days and tuition includes housing, food, golf facility and instruction. Here is additional information about the summer camp program:

  • There are 50 Nike Golf Camps

Tiger Woods is living proof that a fine golf swing can be developed in early childhood as the first step toward creating a champion. But kids don't have to become champions in order to enjoy golf. This heavily illustrated manual offers detailed instructions specifically focused to teach the game to young people--approximately ages 10-through-16. Written by Nick Wright, Instruction Editor of Britain's best-selling Golf Monthly magazine, Junior Golf clearly explains the technique behind every aspect of the game, from driving and putting to long irons and bunker shots.
