SCC ANNOUNCES NIKE JUNIOR GOLF CAMPS COMING TO CANADA JULY 2018
Sports Camps Canada is excited to introduce its first Nike Junior Golf Camps in Canada. Nike Junior Golf Camps at Mayfair Lakes Golf and Country Club in Richmond, BC are open to juniors of all skill levels, ages 7-15. Throughout each week, campers receive top-notch instruction from Mayfair Lakes Director of Instruction, Keri Moffat CPGA Class “A”, and her staff of assistants.
““This is our first year hosting the Nike Junior Golf Camps at the GBC Golf Academy at Mayfair Lakes, and we couldn’t be more excited to incorporate this elite program into our junior academy. The Nike brand has been instrumental in providing opportunities to athletes all over the world and we are proud to offer our summer camps under the umbrella of such inspiration and innovation.” Keri Moffat, Director Of Instruction
Camp Director Keri Moffat, who holds a PGA of Canada Class “A” status, will lead the programs. She is the assistant coach for the UBC Women's Golf team and has coached for the British Columbia Golf, and the BC Summer Games. Keri's start in golf began at a young age under the encouragement and instruction from her grandfather and father, both members of the PGA of Canada. After a successful junior career in Southern Ontario, she went on to receive an Honours Degree in Environment and Resource Management at the University of Western Ontario as well as a Professional Golf Management Certificate at Humber College in Toronto. Keri achieved her PGA of Canada Class “A” status in 2004 and became one of only a few father/daughter Class “A” golf professionals in Canada.
“We are thrilled to be able to bring the first Nike Junior Golf Camp to Canada at a premiere course with outstanding facilities and Pros. The Mayfair Lakes Golf and Country Club will be the foundation we build our Nike Golf Camps on all across the country. We could not have dreamed of a better location to start with.”
With the towering beauty of Vancouver's North Shore Mountains serving as a backdrop, Mayfair Lakes in Richmond is a genuine golf sanctuary, offering year-round golf in a secluded country ambiance that's just minutes from Vancouver. The intrigue lies in the abundance of lakes and waterways that come into play on 13 of the 18 holes, adding as much challenge as aesthetic appeal to the course.
Running from 9:00am-Noon daily, these half day camps include 12 hours of instruction on the practice range and short game areas. For three hours each day, campers will hone their skills while focusing on the key fundamentals—stance, grip, posture, full swing, rules & etiquette, etc. Throughout the week, campers receive quality short-game instruction and by the end of camp, each Nike camper will see improvement in their golf game!
