This isn't just any Golf Camp, it's the PGA Junior Golf Camp. Learn why the PGA instruction is best in class.
Cantigny Golf offers 27-holes of championship golf and is comprised of the Woodside, Lakeside and Hillside courses. Together the courses create three unique golf experiences. Cantigny golf has been host to the 2007 U.S. Amateur Public Links, the 1998 and 2002 Illinois Amateur Championship and numerous USGA qualifiers. The Cantigny Golf Academy and Cantigny Youth Links round out an entirely unique golf operation where your junior golfer can acquire and grow their passion for this great game. A complete practice facility is available including greens for putting, chipping and sand play as well as full swing areas with climate controlled hitting bays.
We have camps for all age groups and abilities, and our best-in-class PGA instruction ensures your child learns from the best.
Full Day Camps (ages 8-13) provide an excellent opportunity for junior golfers to improve their technical skills as well as develop strong course management skills. Participants are segmented into smaller groups based on their experience level in order to create the most favorable learning environment possible. Lunch is provided for full day campers.
Half Day Camps (ages 8-13) are designed to create the “new junior golfer” up through those playing at an intermediate level. Participants are segmented into smaller groups based on their experience level in order to create the most favorable learning environment possible. For three hours each day, campers learn or hone their skills with a strong emphasis placed on golf’s fundamentals and well as fun!
To be the best, you must learn from the best. That’s why every junior golf camp instructor has been trained and tested in all aspects of the game by the PGA of America. Our promise–is to support, encourage, and respect each and every one of our campers and authentically inspire them to reach their full potential, both on and off the golf course.
