TGA of Union County is partnering with Kent Place to offer boys and girls entering grades 2 - 6 the most exciting golf camp. Kent Place Golf Camp is tailored for ALL SKILL LEVELS; from the never played before who is just starting out to the more experienced player looking to advance their game. Camp will be staffed by certified TGA instructors who focus on improving all aspects of each camper's golf game through specifically designed lesson plans. This ensures that each camper gets the individual Attention and TIME necessary to achieve their goals.
 
Campers practice all aspects of the game: Swing Fundamentals, chipping, putting, driving, Golf rules & etiquette, competitive formats (best ball, match play, etc.), course management and decision making (driver vs. iron off the tee, etc.), and practice techniques.  Students learn these skills by participating in stations and they rotate through each one to practice these skills and keep the day fun and engaging! We also incorporate simulated course play, golf games and skills challenges into each week.  Students always look forward to Golf Olympics each week! Golf Camp is all about providing a fun atmosphere for children of all ages and skill levels to play golf. Campers will build friendships, gain self-confidence, and create lifelong memories.
