“My staff and I look forward to partnering with Nike Junior golf camps in 2020,” says Platt. “We are excited to work with all the juniors here at Mistwood to help improve their games while having fun in the process during the half day camps, and especially the full day camps that will include playing on one of the best courses in the state of Illinois. Campers will learn from the best staff in the Midwest!”
