NEW TO THE GAME

Welcome to John E. S. Cochrane Golf Schools Junior Camps. What a great way for your child to learn the basics of a great family sport and a game for a lifetime. Each day experienced and qualified golf professionals will teach juniors the solid fundamentals of the full swing and short game.

The full swing consist of the set up position, finish position, backswing, impact position, and performance development. The short game consists of putting, chipping, pitching, bunker shots and all the different green side shots. In addition basic rules, courtesy, etiquette and sportsmanship are covered.

SCORING COMPETITION

The Scoring Competition Camp is designed for juniors who are at a more experienced level or have previously attended our Intermediate Camp. It is more specifically geared towards golfers whose goals are to be better tournament players or maybe to make their high school golf team. During the week our teaching professionals will conduct a video analysis of each student’s swing and continue on to the tee line for ball striking (will consist of short game and full swing training).

The second part of each day will consist of bringing competitive fundamentals to the course. Examples of areas covered are: learning how to score, correct nutrition (keeping sugar levels even), and how to mentally prepare for a tournament (taking your practice sessions to the course). They will also increase their knowledge of rules and sportsmanship.

From here the next step is private lessons with our experienced instructors.
