This 2-day camp is designed to improve the player’s short game. All aspects of the short game are covered in detail including putting, chipping, pitching and bunker shots.

Our teaching philosophy is to make sure our students understand the fundamentals (grip, set-up, balance, alignment, etc.). We’ll teach them at what ever skill level they bring to camp. We’ll also give students a practice plan to take home after camp to keep improving. We’ve had a lot of success over the years with this camp. It tends to fill up very quickly so don’t wait too long to sign up. We take a total of 40 students.
All Camps require an online registration with a deposit of $100.00 at the time of sign up, and the balance is charged to the same credit card on the morning of the first day of camp. If you’re unable to register online you can submit a paper application with the deposit; the balance is still due on the first day of camp. We also require an up-to-date Medical Information Form on each camper. This form can be sent in prior to camp or may be brought on the first day.
