Women's Golf Camp vs. Golf School

You can improve your swing and overall golf game with the solid instruction offered at a women’s golf camp. Camp is not a full-time commitment like a golf school or golf academy, but it can still be beneficial. College women’s golf camps are a good choice, but there are also plenty of quality private camps not affiliated with colleges.

Golf, similar to tennis, is a sport that also offers the possibility of long term, intense instruction. At a women’s golf academy girl’s golfers go to school full time, and work on their golf game every day. The intense immersion in can certainly help your golf game, but that kind of high school experience isn’t for everybody. 


What Are the Benefits of Women’s Golf Camp?

Attending a golf camp or golf clinic is a good idea if you’re a girl’s golf recruit. Camp can help a high school golfer in a number of ways.


  • College women’s golf coaches or LPGA professionals are great teachers when it comes to improving your golf swing.
  • College golf camps provide valuable exposure to college golf programs, but it’s important for girl’s golf recruits to realize that you’re not going to be “discovered” at golf camp. However, coaches already familiar with you get the chance to evaluate your game more closely at golf camp.
  • Women’s golf camp shows how you measure up against other high school golfers, and it can help you discover which golf skills you need to work on the most.
  • A college golf camp can provide a good idea of what campus life is like. You can live in the dorms, see a school’s athletic facilities and experience aspects of the college that might make it easier to choose a school when the recruiting process is over.


Choosing a Golf Camp

Do plenty of research when choosing a women’s golf camp, and decide if your goal is to work on your swing and technique, or to gain exposure.


If you’re going to a women’s golf camp to improve your technique and swing, learn as much as you can about the coaching staff. What is their level of experience? Do they have a strong history of producing talented women’s golfers? Ask someone who’s familiar with the camp what to expect.


If you’re hoping to gain exposure, go to women’s golf camp at a college that’s recruiting you. Coaches don’t really scout at camps, so go to a school where they already know who you are. Find out which coaches will be on the staff, and get in touch with them ahead of time to let them know that you’re coming.
