MORE ABOUT OUR CAMPS
Morning Skill Development
Full day and half day campers will work on skills on HPGC’s 3-hole short course and practice putting green, chipping area and driving range. Campers will be introduced to drills and compete in fun games like: TicTacToe (golf version), Cow Pasture Pool, Croquet Golf, Knockout, Last One Standing, Poison, Tower of Power, Footgolf and more!
Pool Cool Down
Full day campers will cool down from the Austin heat daily at the adjacent East Communities YMCA pool which includes a water slide!
Afternoon On-Course Play
After lunch and the pool, full-day campers will get on course experience by playing our 9-hole PGA Tour Designed track. The course is perfect for young players learning the game or learning how to score lower.
Beyond The Game
Camps are structured around The First Tee’s life skills based curriculum which introduces and reinforces values and skills inherent in the game of golf. Values include: Honesty, Respect, Courtesy, Responsibility, Judgment, Confidence, Sportsmanship, Perseverance, and Integrity. The program uses the game of golf to teach kids about making healthy choices, managing emotions, interpersonal skills and more.
