What does the daily schedule look like?
Check out the daily schedule on the camp pages of the website but in short players get up at 7:30am and have breakfast before a 3 hour session of coaching and practice in the morning. The players then have lunch before heading out to the golf course for 18 hole sin the afternoon. We return to the accommodation for dinner and then have a variety of evening activities before heading to bed for lights off at 10pm.
What should my child bring to camp?
Golf Clubs, Golf clothing, Golf Shoes, Casual Clothes, Sport Kit, Wash Kit and a Towel.
When a booking is made you will receive a comprehensive list, of what is required, to make the most of the camp.
Golf clubs and trolleys are also available to rent.
How many children will be on each camp?
Each camp will vary in size but our coaching ratios remain constant. Golfers on our High Performance Camp will be in groups of 4 and golfers on our Ultimate Camp will be in groups of 8. Our groups combine in the afternoon out on the golf course to allow players to make new friends and meet lots players from other groups.
Should my child bring money?
It is advised that the children do bring some money to spend during their stay. The camp will have a shop that sells drinks, snacks, souvenirs, golf balls etc. Players may also wish to purchase items when out at the different golf courses.
We will run a house bank for pupils to keep they money in a safe place and manage their spending throughout their stay.
Parents can also prepay credit in the camp store as well as reserve a trolley to reduce the amount of cash the pupil is carrying.
Do I need to provide bed linen for my child?
No, all fresh bed linen is provided but pupils will need to bring their own towel.
Is it possible for my child to stay locally with me?
We would encourage, where possible, all children stay on site with the other children. Children make friends quickly and they all bond together as a group, they do enjoy their downtime together as well as playing golf together. If you wish to take you child out for dinner one evening, this would be a nice idea.
We do also offer a small number of non residential places which can be purchased through the camp shop.
What is the deadline for booking?
There is no deadline however places are limited to prevent the camp sizes becoming too large and ensure we stay within our coaching ratios.
Please book early to avoid disappointment.
Who will be looking after my child?
Our certified and experienced staff will take care of the children, and our accommodation will be managed by an experienced housemaster/housemistress. All staff are PVG checked and First Aid Trained.
The children are cared for continuously throughout the camp, they will feel safe, content and relaxed. A holiday feel is what your child will experience.
Will my child be safe whilst at camp?
The safety of the children who attend our camps is of paramount importance. We want the camp to be fun, to be safe and we do everything we can to create the warmth and security of a family break away. Our staff are all experienced working with children and it is second nature to them all, to ensure all safety measures are taken, at all times.
Will my child have a primary carer allocated to them?
Yes, each child on the camp will know who their primary carer is and will be issued a mobile number so they can reach them 24 hours a day. Our boarding houses are run by an experienced housemaster/housemistress and parents will also have an emergency contact number which is available 24 hours a day.
Can we stay in touch with our child?
The children are kept busy during the day so we would prefer all contact with families to be carried out during the evening, if at all possible.
