PGA Junior Golf Camps is proud to announce a unique opportunity to take part in a camp lead by two of the top collegiate coaches in the country!

In this two day program, junior golfers have the opportunity to receive instruction from an outstanding coaching staff led by Northwestern's Head Men's Golf Coach, David Inglis and UCLA's Assistant Men's Golf Coach, Andrew Larkin. Coach Inglis and Coach Larkin along with additional PGA professionals will deliver daily instruction geared toward those high school and tournament level players who are looking to climb their way up the high school ladder, improve their tournament results and have aspirations of playing collegiate golf.

 

The course at the Bridges at Poplar Creek Country Club provides the perfect backdrop for this collegiate coaching program with everything the advanced golfer needs to challenge and improve their game. In 2011, The Bridges of Poplar Creek Country Club underwent a grand reinvention and fifteen holes were enhanced under this period. Multiple tee boxes, re-configured fairways and bunkers, planting of fescue for depth and definition, and new lakes make for challenging, yet fair hazards as well as terrific strategic shot values.

In addition to the daily program, Coach Inglis and Larkin will host an evening seminar for the players and parents alike.
