The Birmingham area is a great junior golf community and I am excited for the opportunity to showcase what Samford University Athletics embodies.

Nike Golf Schools & Junior Camps added another prominent Division I institution to their 2012 golf camp schedule by teaming up with Samford University for one week of overnight golf camp this summer. The program at Samford will represent the only Nike Overnight Camp offering in the state of Alabama.

Samford University was founded as Howard College in 1841 and originally located in Marion, AL. Located in Birmingham since 1887, Samford is Alabama’s largest private university and was recently named “Best Southeastern College” by the Princeton Review. In athletics, Samford competes in 17 sports as a member of the historic Southern Conference.

Samford Head Men’s Golf Coach, Woodie Eubanks, will direct the Nike Golf Camp alongside other teaching professionals and members of the Bulldog men’s golf team. Eubanks, who is in his 9th year as head coach, was named Southern Conference Coach of the Year in 2011 after leading his young squad to a fourth-place finish in the prestigious and competitive SoCon. During his tenure, Eubanks has led his teams to their first conference championships, their first NCAA appearance, and their highest national rankings in school history, and he looks forward to establishing a presence in Birmingham junior golf by hosting Nike Golf Camp this June.

"The Samford family is very excited about our new partnership with Nike Golf Camps and Hoover Country Club,” states Woodie Eubanks. “The Birmingham area is a great junior golf community and I am excited for the opportunity to showcase what Samford University Athletics embodies.”

The Nike Junior Overnight Camp at Samford University is slated for June 24 – 28. The program is coed and open to junior golfers, ages 10 – 18. Campers are housed on campus and travel to Hoover Country Club for golf activities. For those golfers who live locally, there is a day camp option during the same camp week.
