CHIPPERS CAMPS are day camps for kids who would like to learn the game of golf in a fun environment. CHIPPERS CAMPS emphasize the basics of the game: how to hold the club and achieve a sound swing, while emphasizing the basic etiquette of the game. One of the tools we use to make learning the game fun is "SNAG Golf" (www.SNAGGOLF.COM). Each camp is held Monday through Friday from 9am to 3pm for the full day camps and 9am to 12pm for the half day camps. The camps are held at the Country Club at Whispering Pines, and are taught by Charlaine Hirst, an LPGA Teaching Professional.
For more information, please read the "Frequently Asked Questions" section (below), or contact Charlaine.
