IJGA Kicks Off Summer Golf Camp With The First Tee Week

Last week, the International Junior Golf Academy (IJGA) kicked off IJGA Summer Golf Camp with The First Tee Week. Around 50 junior golfers from The First Tee chapters across the country came to Hilton Head to participate in summer golf camp. Students trained daily Monday-Friday from 7:30AM-3:30PM. Most days included nine holes of golf at one of IJGA’s six partner courses (Pinecrest Golf Club, Crescent Pointe Golf Club, Eagle’s Pointe Golf Club, Rose Hill Golf Club, Island West Golf Club and Dolphin Head Golf Club). After practice, campers had the opportunity to engage in a variety of fun activities from going to the beach to visiting the Harbour Town Lighthouse to going on a dolphin cruise. In the evenings, activities included everything from bowling, to visiting the local trampoline park to watching fireworks at Shelter Cove.

What kinds of things did the campers learn at camp? Courtney Cervellin from The First Tee of Greater Sacramento said,”I’ve already learned how to hit a better bunker shot, hit crazy lies. To be part of a group setting when everyone around you wants to learn the progress their game.”

While the campers came from a variety of backgrounds and experiences, many of them share the common goal of wanting to reach the top level of the professional ranks. “I definitely want to be on the PGA Tour and these coaches are helping me get there,” said Alexander Lowe, a camper from The First Tee of Fort Worth.
