--Ultimate Golf School offered for Adults

Kiawah Island, SC (Thursday, February 22, 2007) – Kiawah Island Golf Resort will offer two-day Junior Golf Camps this year starting in June and running through Labor Day. Camps run twice a week with a Monday-Tuesday camp and a Thursday-Friday camp, each run from 2:00 pm to 5:30 pm. 

“These camps are geared to the intermediate golfer between the age of 12 and 17,” explained Ronnie Miller, Kiawah Island Golf Resort’s Director of Instruction. “They focus on both full swing and short game and will feature both on-range and on-course instruction with some indoor lessons as well. In addition to golf mechanics, the on-course and indoor sessions will also feature some instruction on rules and basic game etiquette.” 

The 2-day camps will be broken down on the following schedule:

Day 1 (Monday/ Thursday)
2:00pm-3:00pm Full Swing
3:00pm-3:45pm Rules/Snack
3:45pm-4:45pm Putting

For beginners, the Tommy Cuthbert Golf Learning Center offers one-hour Junior Clinics (ages 8-17) all summer long Monday through Friday at 1 pm.
