Nike Golf Camps has expanded their junior golf camp network with the addition of Nemacolin Woodlands Resort in Farmington, Pennsylvania. This program is specifically designed for the competitive junior golfer looking to lower their score in a golf-intensive environment. Participants enjoy five-star accommodations at The Lodge at Nemacolin, daily practice and play at the resort’s championships courses (Mystic Rock and The Links), and instruction from Nemacolin Golf Academy Staff members and West Virginia University Head Coach, Sean Covich.

“You would be hard-pressed to find a better, or more picturesque, setting for a golf camp,” says Nicholas Brunner, vice president of Nike Junior Golf Camps. “In addition to the pristine facilities, our staff combines Nemacolin’s experienced professionals, including 2014 Tri-State PGA Teacher of the Year, Brian Rogish, and a Division I college coach in Sean Covich. They utilize the game’s most innovative technologies and have created a curriculum to make a lasting impact on our campers. We’ve tailored this camp to attract serious golfers looking to take their game to new heights.”

The curriculum consists of morning instructional groups with emphasis on short game, putting, full swing, and proper practice routines. A student-to-teacher ratio of 4:1 enables the coaches to work intimately with each camper. Afternoons are dedicated to course play where coaches supervise and provide guidance on shot/club selection, strategy, and mental toughness. On top of group instruction and on-course practice, junior golfers receive 1-on-1 video analysis to work on their swings throughout the week. In the evenings, campers participate in fun, non-golf activities at the resort.

Nemacolin Academy Director of Instruction, Brian Rogish, and West Virginia University Head Coach, Sean Covich, co-direct the program. Rogish, a Class A PGA Member, was selected as the 2014 Tri-State PGA Teacher of the Year and also earned “One of the Best Young Teachers in America” through his nomination for the “Top 40 Teachers Under the Age of 40” list. Sean Covich begins his first year at WVU after spending three seasons as assistant coach at Mississippi State University. WVU’s varsity team uses Nemacolin’s practice facility as they train throughout the season.

The Nike Golf Camp at Nemacolin has an all-inclusive overnight option, as well as an extended-day camp (9:00AM-8:00PM) for local juniors that wish to sleep at home. Session dates are July 12th – 15th, 2015. The camp is co-ed and is suitable for advanced golfers, ages 12 – 18.
