Our lessons are designed to empower campers both on and off the course while cultivating a love for the game of golf. Our unique lessons let campers explore golf in a safe, secure and nurturing environment. Campers are transported off-site to practice their golf game at the nearby golf course.
Cody offers group private lesson, placing campers in groups based upon skill. Instructors develop the campers’ skills by evaluating their level of play. This is determined by how they grip the club, their stance, posture, full swing, ability to putt and chip and their perception of the course.
Beginner golfers are introduced to the basic fundamentals and all aspects of the game, such as etiquette, rules, pre-shot routine, scoring and club selection. Intermediate golfers work on improving their swing mechanics and short game, including how to save strokes by playing off the cart path, pine straw, mulch and side-hill lies.
As campers advance through lessons, instructors will add driving techniques using all woods. While on the course, instructors also discuss handling bunkers, deep rough, over-the-water shots and other specialized shots, while teaching campers to manage their way around the golf course to avoid problems and set up opportunities for better scoring. Campers will learn how the professionals achieve low scores through creativity, strategy and playing the percentage shots around the greens.
Campers are always encouraged to internalize their progress and make connections, as well as develop confidence in what they are doing.
Golf private lessons are half-day and replace at least 3 activity periods once every 4 days. Camp Cody provides all necessary equipment but asks that campers bring a collared shirt, dockers and proper golf footwear to camp.
