This isn't just any Golf Camp, it's the PGA Junior Golf Camp. Learn why the PGA instruction is best in class.
Little Linksters at Orange Lake Resort is a national award winning organization that offers a wide variety of teaching programs for children, from new golfers to tournament players. Little Linksters offers opportunities to test skills and become part of the team and is taught in a fun and interactive way. The bottom line is the Little Linksters Program is FUN!
Orange Lake Resort boasts a championship course designed by Arnold Palmer, with two distinct play experiences. Scottish-style golf is featured on the front nine; while the towering pines, majestic oaks, winding fairways and flowing water on the back nine are reminiscent of the Carolinas. This course has multiple sets of tee boxes to ensure that all skill levels can enjoy a challenging round. The Reserve’s scenic course is also a great for family play.
We have camps for all age groups and abilities, and our best-in-class PGA instruction ensures your child learns from the best.
Half Day Camps are designed to inspire new golfers and further the development of those playing at an intermediate level. Participants are segmented into smaller groups based on their experience and age in order to create a favorable learning environment. For three hours each day, campers learn and hone their skills with a strong emphasis placed on golf’s fundamentals while having fun!
Full Day Camps provide an opportunity for junior golfers to continue to improve their skills as well as develop better course management expertise. Participants are segmented into smaller groups based on their ability level and age in order to create a favorable learning environment. Following lunch, campers head to the course for supervised play emphasizing course management, shot selection and rules.
Advanced Full Day Camps offer serious game improvement for the serious junior golfer. These camps concentrate on instruction which will take a camper’s 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.
