Welcome to our Camps for 2019!
Junior camps provide a fun and educational reason to get kids outside to play. Golf is a great family sport that can lead to a lifetime of fun. It’s full of action, discipline, frustration and integrity, just as you would experience in life. Each camp is designed to improve your child’s golf knowledge and skill level, and to develop character and integrity. Our full and half day camps are designed for kids of all ages and skill levels. We will cover the basics of golf, ways to improve skills, rules and etiquette, and course management in a fun, always active, positive environment. Please register early as all camps have limited space to maintain camper to coach ratios.

Prince William Junior Golf Camps FAQ
What ages and skill level are the Junior Golf Camps geared toward?
How are the campers supervised?
Campers are supervised by our coaches both on and off the course.
Is my child on the driving range all day? What other activities are planned?
The majority of our camp sessions are spent out on the practice facility but our time there is by no means boring and overly repetitive. With our unique USGTF/The First Tee Junior Camp curriculum, we integrate learning with fun by combining skill development with games, friendly competitions, and many activities which serve as a vehicle for learning and let kids have a whole lot of fun at the same time!
What if my child has never golfed?
We are excited to welcome the “new junior golfer” in that one of our primary goals is to introduce the great game of golf to as many “future golfers” as possible. Our curriculum has been developed to make the introduction to the game relaxed, non-intimidating, and fun.
How can I be assured that my child will be safe and supervised?
We take your child’s safety as seriously as we take our own children’s. Our entire staff undergoes an extensive interviewing process and training. We also conduct extensive background checks on each of our employees. We only hire teaching professionals who have experience working with juniors and understand how to make children feel safe, supported, and encouraged.
Is there a benefit to registering for consecutive weeks of camps?
By registering for multiple weeks of camp, your child will experience continued game development, as our instructors will have the opportunity to really get to know your child, his or her game, and how to get the most out of your child’s experience.
Are there any special clothes or equipment that I need to purchase?
It is recommended that kids bring their own clubs to camp, however, we will provide clubs for those that do not have their own. Lastly, golf or tennis shoes are acceptable.
Do I need to bring a camp info packet health form to camp?
Absolutely. All campers are required to complete the health form prior to the camp start. Download Health Form Here (REQUIRED) We cannot and will not allow campers to participate unless the required health forms and waivers have been completed and turned in.
What is your refund policy?
Cancellations received at least 14 days prior to camp start date will be refunded less a $25 administration fee. Cancellations within 14 days of camp start date will receive a camp credit toward a future Junior Golf Camp less a $25 administration fee. This credit is valid for the remainder of the calendar year.
