The Big Four sports will always be a major draw, but some kids feel more at home on the fairway. If your child’s heroes are Tiger Woods and Annika Sörenstam, they’ll love hitting the links at a youth golf camp this summer. Whether they’re just casual golfers or they have real promise in the PGA, going to golf camp is an amazing opportunity for kids to strengthen their skills and refine their technique while having fun with new friends and instructors.
There are enough different golf camps in our directory for anyone to learn and play along with their own age group. If your kids are just starting to become interested in the sport, junior golf camps are a great way for them to master the basics and get comfortable playing on new ranges and courses. Teenagers, however, will benefit from camps that offer more advanced instruction, especially if they play on a golf team in high school and need the summer to practice.
It’s never too late for grown-ups to get into the game too. If you’ve always wanted to golf but don’t feel ready to play on an actual course, there are golf camps for adults where coaches will bring you up to speed. After a few weekends of professional instruction, you’ll feel comfortable joining your friends or coworkers for a full round.
The facilities available for practice vary from camp to camp. Nearly all of them will have a driving range and a putting green or two, which may be enough for young children who are just picking up the principles. For more advanced golfers, there are camps with a few fairways or access to three-par courses near their location, while others have a full 18-hole course to work with. Look for a camp whose facilities best match the level of instruction and new learning opportunities you’re hoping for.
Golf camps for girls, boys, newbies, varsity players, overnighters, daytime visitors, and other groups can all be found in our camp directory. Use the map to pull a list of camps in your area (or other parts of the world if you’d like to explore courses in new climates) and learn more about each program. In addition to improving their golf game, your kids will challenge themselves, build confidence, bond with other players, and create memories they’ll carry from hole to hole for the rest of their lives.
