“I am looking forward to being a part of College Golf Experience. I think it provides a unique opportunity to pair junior golfers and their parents with college coaches. Campers will benefit from time spent with coaches preparing for college golf and many questions will be answered about the transition process.”
“College Golf Experience camps are a great way to meet and engage with college coaches in a fun and relaxed environment. Juniors and parents will leave with a clear understanding of what college golf looks like and how to reach their junior and collegiate golfing goals!”
“College Golf Experience will provide junior golfers and their parents with a unique opportunity. Connecting with college coaches and having all their questions answered will give juniors an experience they can’t find anywhere else.”
“College Golf Experience camps are perfect for any player/parent looking to learn about the recruiting process and prepare for college golf. Coaches are happy to answer your questions and shine light on the less-known aspects of college golf.”
“I have worked junior golf camps across the country and around the world for the past 10 years of my coaching career and CGX camps are far above the rest. The amount of exposure and relationships coaches get to create with young student athletes is second to none. Campers get to learn inside knowledge about all things college golf, including recruiting and tournament preparation they can soak up. Not only are the players getting direct one on one interaction with coaches, but parents are encouraged to engage with the coaches as well. This is a fantastic opportunity to clear up recruiting myths and misinformation directly from the people who are involved, the coaches. “
“I was introduced to CGX by a colleague and met some really great players and parents at my first camp; players I will stay in contact with. I could tell they found the time with the coaches to be extremely valuable. Through CGX, the players were able to go to the course and immediately apply the strategies we discussed at camp. It made an instant impact in their scoring and enthusiasm for their game. I highly recommend going to a CGX camp. Players and parents will benefit from on-course strategies and the recruiting knowledge shared by coaches.”
“CGX camps are a great experience. As a PGA Member since 1986 and Collegiate Golf Coach since 2003 this platform is a great way to share with juniors and their families the necessary steps to get noticed and how to prepare for tournaments like collegiate players.”
“As the parent of a junior golfer, it was difficult to determine how to put my son in the best position possible to reach his goal of playing collegiate level golf. CGX camps provide great feedback on how to make that possible, introduced great concepts on practice/tournament preparation and allowed my son the opportunity to connect with high level college coaches. If you have a junior golfer that is looking to continue his or her career at the college level, I would highly recommend attending a CGX camp..”
“Having traveled from Mumbai, I thoroughly enjoyed interacting and spending time with the skilled and esteemed coaches from Ivy League schools at Springdale Golf Club. Learning about Ivy as well as other Division I golf programs, how student-athletes live at college, and the differences in junior and college golf was informative. The coaches input on the technical aspects of my game opened a few working areas while furthering my understanding of strategic golf. I am grateful to CGX and the Coaches for their time and effort. My experience surpassed my expectations.“
