FORT MYERS, Fla. ( May 23 , 2014)
Shell Point Golf Club welcomes young golfers between the ages of 7 and 15 to participate weekly Junior Golf Camps scheduled Monday through Friday from 9 to 10:30 a.m. throughout the summer.
The players will receive golf instruction from PGA professional Gary Keating, PGA professional John Alfuth, and Teaching Professional Nick Macenas. Each week, players will have an opportunity to improve upon their technique through the use of a video program that will capture their personal performance.
“The videos will allow the instructors to analyze each swing and provide more detailed direction for overall improvement,” said Keating.
The camp will also include information about the rules and etiquette of the game. Light snacks will be provided. The cost to participate in the Junior Golf Camp at Shell Point Golf Club is $60 per week. For more information about the program, or to sign up, please contact the Pro Shop at (239) 433-9790.
Campers will benefit from the expertise of Shell Point’s new golf course manager, Gary Keating, who was named the Southwest Florida PGA Player of the Year in 1996, 1997, and 1999.
