This isn't just any Golf Camp, it's the PGA Junior Golf Camp. Learn why the PGA instruction is best in class.
The Red Course has a storied history, designed by prominent golf architect Devereux Emmet in 1914 and has hosted PGA Championships as far back as 1926. More recently, the Red Course played host to the PGA Tour’s Commerce Bank Championship. A second championship-level course, the White, was designed by Robert Trent Jones, who also designed the Blue course.
Young golfers will be able to fine tune their skills at Eisenhower Park’s 60 bay driving range and four executive level nine hole courses conveniently located across the county park system.
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 12-17) 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.
Modified Full Day camps (ages 8-13) provide an excellent opportunity for junior golfers who are ready to take that next step towards course play. Participants will have the opportunity to improve their technical skills and begin to develop 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 Modified full day campers.
Half Day camps (ages 7-13) 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!
Wee Ones Half Day camps (ages 4-6) are a fun introduction to golf fundamentals such as stance, gripping, putting, chipping, pitching and full swing. They will also learn basic golf safety, rules and etiquette — all while having fun! The instruction will include game-based teaching methods to reinforce the fun side of golf. There will also be activities that work on balance, coordination, locomotion, and body awareness to help the campers improve their overall athletic skills.
Advanced Golfer camps (ages 12-17) offer serious game improvement for the serious junior golfer. The camps concentrate on instruction which will take a campers game to the next level, with the emphasis on mental conditioning, course management, and the short game. By utilizing tournament-like conditions, campers are taught and tested on those skills identified as being mandatory to successfully compete at even the highest competitive junior golf levels. Stroke play, match play, and other like competitions are simulated each day with the end goal being true game improvement.
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.
