At 12:30pm all the campers in this program will meet up and be asked where they would like to go for the day. They will have a choice between the swimming at our pool (certified lifeguards on duty) or be able to continue to work on their golf skills. If they choose to swim, a counselor will bring them to the pool to play until 3:00pm. If they choose to golf, an instructor will take them back onto the course to play a round. This is a great way to put what they have learned that day to the test and at the same time fix certain areas that still need some work. Swimmers and golfers will meet up at 3:15pm for a 20-minute snack time. After snacks, it will be free time where they can relax on the deck or golf in the practice area.
