Our goal is to establish a solid foundation for each junior whether brand new to the game or a more experienced player. Our approach to the game is two-fold. The fundamentals will be stressed everyday so that every participant will have learned the importance of a good grip, set-up, posture, alignment, short game and full swing fundamentals. We also emphasize the "play" aspect of the game. Some juniors are more competitive than others. We encourage and challenge these children in different ways than we might juniors who are not so competitive in nature. We hope that each junior completes camp with a love for the game that will last a lifetime.
