The Golf Academy at Basking Ridge is open to the public and offers junior and adult clinics, junior summer camp programs, and private lessons from our PGA professional staff. Program focuses on improving student's fundamental movement skills(FMS), and the skill acquisition of locomotion, stability, balance, object control and spacial awareness. Agility, quickness and change of direction drills are practiced to enhance student's athleticism. Golf concepts like grip, posture, alignment, ball position and weight shift are introduced. Rules, safety and course etiquette are explained through games that simulate golf but keep it fun. Other sports and games are played and taught to enhance long term athletic development. No prior experience necessary, clubs are provided but students may bring their own.
Our half-day camps are designed to teach the golfer all aspects of the golf swing and its application to the course. Grouped by similar abilities and ages, PGA Professionals will teach putting, chipping, full swing and specialty shots. Fundamental movement skills will be taught with drills to improve not only their physical motion, but also their understanding of swing mechanics that help link the motion to their ball striking ability.
Our full-day camps are designed for the most eager golfers who want to know all they can about the game.
