WHAT GOLF EQUIPMENT AND SUPPLIES ARE NEEDED?
We recommend that everyone have their own set of golf clubs. However, if your Junior Golfer needs golf clubs to use, we can provide them with advance notice.
A basic inventory of supplies should be included with your golf bag including the following: sunscreen, umbrella, golf tees, putting green ball marker, and small hand towel.

HOW SHOULD WE DRESS FOR CAMP?
Junior Golfers can wear golf shirts or tee-shirts but no tank tops please! Any shorts other than cutoffs or swim trunks, and any athletic shoes other than big cleats or spikes are recommended.

CAN WE USE CELL PHONES DURING CAMP?
We allow Junior Golfers to carry cell phones to stay in touch with Parents at all times and expect that usage is only for emergency communication purposes.
We anticipate all Camps to be conducted rain or shine.
In case of an extraordinary weather event that require a shortened Camp, Parents will receive a notification text/call to return to the host golf course for pickup and/or cancellation.

WHAT IS ACCEPTABLE BEHAVIOR FOR CAMPERS?
Junior Golfers are expected to act like “Ladies and Gentlemen”.
We expect everyone to treat each other with courtesy and respect and use appropriate language.
Safety is of high priority and golf clubs will be carried or held in the Safety Position. While observing others and waiting, Junior Golfers must stand in the Safe Standing Areas.
In case of excessive misbehavior by a Junior Golfer, Parents will be asked to directly speak to their Junior Golfer and counsel them on the correct behavior.

Also don’t forget to make new friends and have fun learning golf!

WHAT ARE THE DAILY DEPARTURE PROCEDURES?
The deadline for Parents to pick up their Junior Golfer is 11:30 a.m.
We recommend that parents arrive about 5 minutes before the end of Camp.
Junior Golfers should place their clubs near the covered porches.

CAN WE PRACTICE OR PLAY AT THE HOST GOLF COURSE?
During Camp, Junior Golfers will learn the fundamentals of golf and will go through our Junior Golfer Development Program (Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced). Junior Golfers are encouraged to practice as much as they want to advance the skills they’ve practiced through the camps. The Ocala Golf Club is open to the public 7 days a week to rent practice balls or play on the golf course accompanied by a Parent or Guardian.
