ABOUT IVY GOLF INSTITUTE
Begin your introduction to college golf with coaches representing Ivy League men's and women's golf programs. Twice each year, our camps will provide individual instruction in all aspects of the great game of golf. Through personalized instruction and worthwhile conversation, participants will be pushed to improve their games as well as their understanding of the college recruiting process and, more specifically, the recruiting process for the Ivy League. Simply put, golf camps are the very best place to make a lasting impression on the coach from the institution of your dreams.
The instruction will include an assessment of skill, introduction into elements of team golf, and expert insight to tournament preparation and course management. Over the two-day experience, participants will engage in a number of activities to better their games and their understanding of how to best position themselves to become recruitable student-athletes.
