“US KIDS” JUNIOR GOLF CAMPS

Our Camps are for children 6 to 14 years old who have some golf experience.
We expect these juniors to have their own clubs that are the proper fit for their specifications.
Progress (especially clubhead speed) can be severely hindered if clubs are too long or too heavy for them.

We have two certified US Kids Instructors on staff and we use the US Kids experience as it provides structured learning so success can be measured and achieved.

These six hour Camps are held on Monday & Tuesdays from 8:00 to 11:00
Six hours of instruction on and off the course
$90 per camp

Levels 1, 2, 3
Camp participants will be grouped together based on skill level.
