Summer vacation is great, at least I always looked forward to it. But then there is the dilemma of how in the world are we parents going to keep our kids busy during all this free time? Summer athletic camps are the answer and golf camps are readily available all over the U.S.

Contact the golf venues in your area, the public courses, the private courses, the driving ranges and the golf training academies. Most, if not all, will be offering week-long summer camps. Hours will be from 8:00 or 8:30am until 12:00noon or until 5:00 or 5:30pm. Costs may be from $150.00 to $275.00 for the week, usually depending on which time option is offered, half-day or full-day.

We always booked S3 in the first week available, so if our budget allowed we could enter him in a 2nd or even 3rd camp. Also if your daughter did not click with the coaches at her 1st camp, you will have time to enter her in a 2nd camp at a different location. All this calendar work depends of course, on the tournaments that are booked over the summer break and the good ole budget.

Dad and Mom, here are 3 big reasons why summer golf camp is important:

  • Your girl is immersed in golf, everything golf, for 20-40 hours during a 1-week time period.
  • It is healthy outdoor exercise.
  • She will learn to become comfortable around people she had not previously known. This is important to help with some of the tournament jitters.

Please get those calendars out, take a look at the family budget and book your daughter today in a summer golf camp. It has the opportunity to greatly advance her golf skills and she’ll love it!

See you on #1 tee ready to show me what you learned in golf camp… Sam

Summer Golf Camp: Quick Progress For Your Junior Golfer

imageSummer is here! That’s the good news and the bad news. An easy way to use some of this wealth of unscheduled time is to enroll your son or daughter in a summer golf camp. Today’s Monday Mulligan is an introduction to the wonderful world of summer golf camps. This is a great way for quick progress in their golf game. (photo from The First Tee NWAR)

Most of the golf courses and driving ranges in your area will have summer golf camps and some will offer as many as 8 or almost 1 every week during summer vacation. Get on the phone or the Internet and find out who is offering summer golf camps convenient to you.

Tradionally, camp runs from 8:00am until 12:00noon, with snacks and refreshments furnished by the host. Friday is usually a “play” day where the kids play 9 holes on a nearby course. A PGA professional will be the lead instructor and will have other PGA pros or local high school or college golfers helping out. Expect to pay $150.00 or more for a quality 5-day experience.

Another great source for golf camps is The First Tee. This is a nation-wide organization that does amazing work introducing kids to the game of golf. For example our First Tee here in San Antonio offers camp from 9:00am-4:00pm, Monday through Friday for $299.00. Go to The First Tee to find a location close to you.


So now you can schedule a week of the summer and if you book a camp earlier in June or July, your kiddo will have a lot of vacation time left to work on what was learned at golf camp.

Get that camp booked! Your junior golfer will have a blast! See you on #1 tee… Sam
