Peddie Golf Camp

PGC examines all aspects of the swing, paying particular attention to the fundamentals that allow for a repeatable, life-long swing. However, PGC also feels strongly about having the experience be more than just about the perfect swing. Campers learn course management, proper etiquette, and some strategies for lower golf scores. In addition, Bickford and his staff also stress campers’ respect for the game, their peers and themselves. Peddie Golf Camp not only seeks to make campers better players, but also to teach them ways to become better people.

From teeing off moments after we dropped them off, to the end of camp skills competitions, our kids had a blast at PGC! They both spoke about how much personal attention they received directed at their specific skill levels and loved that they were able to play such a fantastic course where before their camp experience was limited to driving ranges. Thanks again - see you next summer! Jay & Nancy, PGC parents

When our son attended the Peddie Golf Camp we were a bit nervous, as he had received most of his prior golf instruction through private lessons. Our fears were completely unfounded. He had a wonderful experience during his week at Peddie. The instructors were well-trained, and both good golfers and good teachers. The camp literally covered all facets of golf, from putting to driving to the mental approach to the game. It was educational not only for brand new golfers but also for students with prior experience in the sport. All in all it was a week very well spent, and he looks forward to joining you again this summer.
