Player Level Golf Camps are the backbone of our junior golf programs.The program consists of four days , from 9:00 am to 3:30pm, with just the right mix of instruction and golf course time. Typically the morning session each day is at Copper Hill Golf Academy and will consist of a session on full swing training and a session on an aspect of short game, either putting, chipping, pitching or bunker. Often times there are skill building short game contests. Golf Camps at Copper Hill play 9 holes on the course each day with instructors.
We are proud that we run the oldest continuously running junior golf camp in Connecticut, the first program was run in 1979.
Lunch is each day at approximately 11:30, while at lunch golf related videos are shown, or there is rules/etiquette discussion. The juniors go onto the golf course each day beginning at about 12:15, and will play a different tournament format each day. Formats lean toward 'team' play earlier in the week and move toward more individual play at the end of the week. The final day of the junior golf camp is our "Final Tournament" where the juniors play for trophies and prizes. Price of the program includes lunch and greens fees each day. Age requirement : 9-16"Players" implies all levels : beginner, intermediate and advanced golfers are welcome at the Player Level, These three levels run concurrently - split into two or three groups. The golf on the course mixes the two groups until the final day when they play within their own group. The program is organized, managed and taught by PGA Professional Paul Banks and Copper Hill Teaching Professional Fabio Colon .
