Staying on top of your training is important so you can continue to improve at golf, even when you are not in the traditional competition season. As a high school golfer or amateur playing at a lower level, staying active and finding ways to compete in the offseason is necessary so you can hone your skills and give yourself the chance to succeed against stronger competition.
Enrolling in golf camps for juniors helps you stay on top of your game so you can continue to progress and climb the ladder, as you chase your ultimate goal of being a collegiate golfer and reaching the professional ranks. Here are five reasons to attend a golf camp this summer:
- Stay active. Participants in junior golf camps are able to focus on their golf training without the pressure of school weighing on their mind. Instead, they are able to focus specifically on their mechanics and get in training sessions that benefit them physically for the next time they set out on the course. Rather than sitting around at home waiting for the next school session to begin, juniors are able to get better at golf and learn more about the game so they can apply their knowledge at their next tournament.
- Receive specialized instruction. Enrolling in a summer golf camp allows you to receive specialized instruction from top golf coaches in the country. Not only will you be able to improve your skills out on the course, you’ll be able to learn the steps you need to take to pursue golf at the next level. Learn tips on driving, approach shots, and putts; see how to better execute the mental side of the game; and understand what it takes to become a top golfer.
- Test your skills against fellow golfers. Rather than solely training with your private coach over the summer months, enrolling in a summer golf camp allows you to measure yourself against your peers. In addition, you will get to socialize with other golfers who are in your same position and build your network. Gain a better understanding of life as a student-athlete and take the time to get to know others who are working toward the same goals as you.
- Compete against other amateur golfers. Depending on where you go to camp over the summer, you’ll be exposed to tournaments and other competitions against other golfers of your same skill level. When attending the International Junior Golf Academy (IJGA) in Hilton Head, South Carolina, for example, you can look forward to events such as the Hilton Head Junior Open, Coastal Carolina Junior Challenge and Charleston Junior Shootout. You are a stone’s throw away from events that will help take you to the next level.
- Train at top locations. Summer golf camps also give junior golfers the chance to train at some of the top facilities in the United States. In addition to world-class practice facilities, golfers are also able to routinely play rounds at courses that are rated among the top in their state or in the country.
