Crimson Junior Golf Camp @ Poppy Ridge Jan 8 - 10, 2016                                                   

Poppy Ridge Golf Course: 4280 Greenville Road, Livermore, CA 94550                                                                                                                                                                                         The goal of these three-day winter camps is two-fold: to help participants enhance all aspects of their golf game in a positive and fun environment and educating participants about the collegiate process. Participants will receive skill-building instruction for putting, chipping, bunkers, pitching, and full swing, along with golf etiquette education and course management training. To assist with the development of a well-rounded student-athlete,  the camp will focus on golf-related drills and exercises along with informational sessions on various topics. Values such as respect, sportsmanship, and integrity through life lessons in golf will also be prioritized and discussed. Camps are open to boys and girls of all ages and abilities.
