Junior Golf Instruction

FUN! Its what golf is all about! Our clinics and camps are designed, first and foremost, with that in mind and your kids will have a blast learning to play better golf at Chautauqua. It’s important that kids improve as well (we all know that golf is more fun when you’re good at it) and Dave and Erik have each taught multiple state champion golfers and junior golfers who have gone on to receive numerous Division 1 and 2 golf scholarships. The foundation for great golf starts early and our many offerings are a great way to get YOUR junior golfer on the path to success.


Players Junior Golf Camp
If you are an experienced junior golfer who loves the game and really wants to get better, this nine-hour camp is perfect for you. Full swing work will center around the 5 Simple Keys® (the commonalities of the game’s greatest players), and this camp will also include plenty of short game/putting, on-course playing strategies, and scoring secrets (the lowest score wins after all). Player’s “campers” must have previous on-course experience with knowledge of how to keep score (camp assignments can be modified the first day to best fit everyone’s needs).
