SAN RAFAEL, Calif., Feb. 19, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- US Sports Camps Inc., operators of NIKE Junior Golf Camps, announced the addition of NIKE Advanced Junior Golf Camp in Lake Tahoe, CA for tournament-level golfers. The new overnight camp curriculum is designed to help competitive golfers lower their scores and become more confident in a tournament setting.
Leading the camp are three Division I college coaches; Marc Chandonnet (Seattle University Head Coach), Andrew Larkin (UCLA Assistant Coach) and Evan Emerick (San Diego State University Assistant Coach). Other college coaches and players will be on staff to assist in instruction and supervision.
Campers and staff stay in condominiums at Northstar Resort, a Vail Resorts property. The Northstar Golf Course and practice range are used during the camp week. Two of the scheduled days are spent at Old Greenwood Golf Course (Jack Nicklaus design) and Gray's Crossing Golf Course (Peter Jacobsen design) for instruction, lunch and course play. In addition to golf, campers have an opportunity to take advantage of other activities around Lake Tahoe including mini golf, a trip to the beach and more.
"We've created a framework to give junior golfers access to incredible facilities and experienced college coaches with Lake Tahoe set as the backdrop," states Vice President of NIKE Junior Golf Camps, Nicholas Brunner. "Northstar, Old Greenwood and Gray's Crossing are some of the finest courses you'll find in the Sierras and the staff we've assembled cares deeply about junior golf. This is going to be a special program this summer and for many years to come."
Marc Chandonnet, head coach of Seattle University men's and women's golf teams, has worked numerous NIKE Junior Golf Camps and other junior programs over the years. His SU teams have collected 39 total WAC All-Academic Team honorees, four Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholars and twelve WGCA All-American Scholars, as well as a GCAA President's Special Recognition Award and a WGCA All-Scholar Team award. Prior to his tenure at Seattle U., Marc coached at Southwestern Oklahoma State and Grand Canyon University, his alma mater.
"My staff and I are extremely excited about hosting a camp in one of the most beautiful locations on the West Coast," states Seattle University Head Coach, Marc Chandonnet. "We promise to provide a first-class experience where you learn new techniques, improve your game and, most importantly, have some fun! We also look forward to helping those interested in someday moving on to play collegiate level golf develop a better understanding of what it takes to compete both physically and mentally."
