Many golf academies offer high-performance golf camps during the summer months which feature professional, advanced training. These camps are specially designed for dedicated young golfers who are serious about improving their skills.
High-performance golf camps differ from standard golf camps in terms of the average skill level at the camp and the amount of time the students spend training. At standard camps, golf is just one of many entertaining activities for the children. They do learn, but the main objective of a standard golf camp is to have fun and make memories with other campers. As a result, students at standard camps spend less time on the golf courts.
At high-performance golf camps, however, students train for more hours and at a more advanced level. The main focus is improvement. Students train for 6 to 8 hours a day on excellent, well-kept gold courses. At high-performance golf camps, coaches are well-qualified and have experience training young, talented players. They spend time analyzing the players’ swings, and then, together, they practice different techniques to improve. Students play on 9 or 18-hole courses best suited to their handicap.
