Continuing to improve your golf game over the summer session is important, especially as you begin competitive play and prepare for college and beyond. Traveling to the United States for summer golf training in an academy setting is ideal for junior golfers around the world. Not only are you able to train and compete in excellent weather at world-class facilities and courses, summer camp in the U.S. also allows you to meet and compete against others in your age and skill groups.
International students have a unique opportunity to enroll in a summer camp at the International Junior Golf Academy (IJGA) in Hilton Head, South Carolina, to learn from certified instructors and participate in top-tier junior events.
Why Attend a Summer Camp?
Summer golf camps, in general, offer participants unique training opportunities they won’t get on their own. A weeklong camp allows junior golfers to focus on every aspect of their game while under the watch of professional coaches.
In addition, structured days at camp emphasize the importance of practice and training, while also leaving time for recreation, socialization, and camp activities. This allows golfers to get the practice and instruction they want to help their game, while also leaving room for valuable time off the course.
Traveling to the United States for a golf camp allows juniors from Europe, Asia, and elsewhere to broaden their cultural perspective and compete against other top golfers in events in the region.
