Orientation will be on Monday at 9:00am, and this is an opportunity for us to get to know the campers and for the campers to learn camp rules and expectations and meet their counselors. Throughout the camp they will be taught the skills of putting, chipping, bunker shots, driving and midrange game. We will take them into our driving range where they will be able to fine tune their swings. We believe the best way for young golfers to learn is by allowing them to play on a real golf course, as opposed to just a driving range. At the same time we can also teach them golf etiquette which is very important to use on a golf course. Hot Lunch is served daily for all campers and snacks will be provided at aftercare. Bring your own equipment or rent clubs at Emerald Hills Golf Course. Any Questions please call or email Emerald Hills Golf Course at 650.368.7820 or email@example.com AFTER CARE 12:30-5PM: During this time, your child can continue to golf with an instructor, swim in the pool (Certified Lifeguards on Duty), or there are other relaxing golf games for them to play.
