Nike Golf Camp

Wintergreen Resort and Nike Golf Camps have joined forces! Give your junior golfer 'lessons for a lifetime' set in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, conducted by the talented PGA Professional staff of the Wintergreen Golf Academy.

Students will learn and develop skill sets in the following core areas:

  • Full Swing Fundamentals - Set the stage for a repeatable golf swing. Students will also be taught the concept of striking a golf ball, that once learned, will produce solid contact with every club in the bag.
  • Short Game - With nearly 70% of the game played from inside 100 yards, students at the Nike golf Camps will be introduced to the scoring shots - putting, pitching, chipping and sand play.
  • Taking the game to the course will also be included during camp week. Instructors will spend much needed course time with the students and prepare them for success with building a pre-shot routine and navigating uneven lies.

Overnight, Extended Day and Day Camp offerings are available July 17-21 and July 31-August 4, 2016. Please visit www.ussportscamps.com to sign up.
