Campers spend each morning working on and reviewing specific golf swing skills, while developing an understanding of golf course etiquette, the games history and terminology. The basic rules, on course and driving range safety and care are also reviewed and practiced daily. Our teaching approach is simple; it starts with the basics of putting, pitching and chipping which then naturally moves to the full swing as we incorporate the basic fundamentals grip, stance, alignment, posture and athleticism.
With the basic foundation in place students can easily expand into the full swing; which is what we teach . . . a swing . . . not a hit. We want the kids to play within themselves. Once the basics are acquired they are sharpened with friendly skills competitions and developed with on course play.
Mornings are broken up with water and fruit snack break. Lunch is a nutritional balance which will touch upon the Canada Health Food Guidelines i.e. pizza, sub sandwich, hamburger, hot dog. A menu will be provided and if any of this is not to your child's liking then they are welcome to bring their own food. Bottled water will be provided during the day.
After lunch campers have a 30 minute “quiet time” followed by afternoon golf instructional at the driving range coupled with on the golf course play, student activities will be based on the individual skill sets of each golfer and at the discretion of the professional staff. In the event of inclement conditions we will entertain the campers in our clubhouse. In the event of inclement conditions we will entertain the campers in our clubhouse.
