We just make it fun and do it in a way that lets kids be kids! Learn from the best. Every camp is lead by a certified PGA of America Professional who knows how to balance both fun and skill development. Fun, safe and educational. Full of action, discipline, and integrity, each camp has been designed to help your child grow both on and off the golf course. From tee to green. Campers learn every aspect of the game, including instruction on the full swing, short game, rules of the game and golf etiquette. A lifetime of learning. Our curriculum, developed in by the PGA of America, encourages skill progression by coupling instruction with games and play opportunities. Camps that work for you. No matter your child’s ability, we’ve got a camp for them. We offer a variety of camp programs featuring small group instruction, course play (full day camps) and a low teacher to student ratio.

Junior golfers will create wonderful memories at Brattleboro Country Club, an 18-hole course complete with extensive practice areas.

Every hole on the course is unique and Brattleboro Country Club was named in Vermont Business Magazine in 2017, 2018, and 2019 as the Best Golf Course in Windham/Windsor Counties. With its driving range, pitching and chipping areas, and putting green, Battleboro Country Club is a great place for juniors to discover and nurture their love of the game.
