Junior Summer Camps

Students ages 12-18 will be immersed in a week-long program based on David’s famed “Holistic Approach” to golf instruction, utilizing 30+ years experience coaching juniors around the world. LGA Orlando Junior Summer Camps will include comprehensive swing instruction from Certified Instructors in Leadbetter’s new A-Swing approach. The A-Swing is a simpler, more efficient technique that is transforming how golf is taught to juniors, amateurs and professionals alike. With a maximum instructor to student ratio of 1:4, personal dedicated coaching will be guaranteed.

Leadbetter Golf Performance fitness sessions, mental coaching, and on-course strategy will ensure each student leaves with a well-rounded experience normally reserved for Tour players. Daily on-course training will take place at the 36-hole Greg Norman-designed ChampionsGate Golf Course.
