Dear Campers

The University of Kentucky Men's Golf program continues to achieve tremendous success on the course, and 2005 SEC Coach of the Year Brian Craig and his staff are eager to share the secrets of their success with you! For 2013, UK is offering 3 different styles of camps for you to choose from.

The Wildcat Elite Academy is a unique learning experience for boys and girls ages 12 – 18. This camp will focus on the finer skills required to play golf at the highest level, and is open to anyone who is interested in playing tournament golf. This is a DAY CAMP only.

The Wildcat Elite Academy Plus is an expanded version of the Wildcat Elite Academy. The Elite Academy Plus is identical to the Elite Academy, but we have added an extra half day of instruction and also added an 18-hole Camp Championship.

The Wildcat Golf Academy is our overnight residence camp, and it truly has something for everybody. A detailed curriculum of practice, play and fun will be incorporated in the camp to maximize learning and enjoyment. Golf activities typically last 9-10 hours per day, combined with a few seminars and other extra curricular activities. This camp offers overnight and day camp tuition rates.

All three camps will be hosted at the spectacular University Club of Kentucky, and the staff will consist of UK Golf Coaches, other collegiate coaches, and UK Golf team members.

Our #1 goal is to create a learning environment where the student can improve and have a great time in the process. We sincerely hope you decide to attend one of our camps and take part in the excitement that is UK Golf!

The Wildcat Elite Academy is very different from any other collegiate camp you will find.  Our goal is to teach you the finer skills and techniques required to play your best.  For two days, UK's Coaches will work with your natural ability and cover every fundamental necessary to help you maximize your potential.  We will also conduct three classroom seminars on topics such as course management, proper practice techniques and how to prepare for competition.  The camp will end with a Q&A to answer any questions you or your parents may have about junior golf and playing competitive golf after high school.  This camp is two full days of hands on instruction on the lesson tee, short game areas and in the classroom at the beautiful University Club of Kentucky and is designed to help young players get game ready for their summer of competitive golf!
