Junior camp 2011 has been a great way to kick off the summer this year! The main goal of the junior camp is to introduce the kids to the game of golf without the pressure of walking on the course as a first timer. Our main goal as instructors is to make sure the kids are having fun while working on their swing. Being a product of the junior camp myself, it really feels great to be able to give back to the game what it gave me as a junior golfer.
We have a great number of participants this year, about 150 juniors, as well as many volunteers who are the ones who make the event possible. The junior camp is offered free of charge and is a great way to build the golfing community. Most importantly we strive to instill proper etiquette at such a young age.
For our junior golfers who are interested in finding out more about the game, we will be offering another camp starting the week of July 11. This camp will last three weeks, with students being able to pick and choose which weeks they would like to attend, and will feature more one on one instruction. It will also offer on course playing lessons along with course management skills. This camp is offered to ages 8 and up and will have a cost of $125 per week. Along with more specific instruction, this camp will include lunch and more importantly lots of FUN!
This Saturday, June 22, NCC will be hosting a Junior Golf Fundraising Tournament and Auction. The tournament will begin at 10am and lunch will follow play. This event will cost $30 per player and Non-Members are welcome to attend.
Finally NCC would like to thank all the volunteers who graciously donated their time and knowledge. Without the volunteers this event would not be possible.
For more information on any event please feel free to contact the NCC staff at 802-334-2391.
