Thornridge Golf Course welcomes our youth to participate in its Junior Golf Camp Tuesday, May 31st – Thursday, June 2nd.  The goal of this camp is to introduce or improve on the fundamentals of golf and to grow the game with our younger generation. We will teach a lot on the fundamentals of the swing but also spend time learning the rules of the game and also have some competitions and fun throughout. The camp is segmented into two age groups, 7-10 and 11-14 that will meet at their own separate times. See below for the camp schedule and focus of instruction. If you have any questions about this camp please contact Tom Schneider in the Pro Shop at 402-761-3606.

Meet the Coach
