Vail Golf Club to  Host Overnight, Full Day And Half Day Camp Programs

Ponte Vedra Beach, FL (March 9, 2012): The TOUR Academy has announced its new junior golf camp location at the highly desirable Vail Golf Club in Vail, Colorado for the summer 2012 season. The golf camps, which include full-day, half-day and overnight programs, are scheduled to begin in June and run through August and are open to juniors 7-17 years of age and of all ability levels.

“We are excited to be able to add Vail to our camp portfolio this summer,” said Marc Haddad, SVP of Business Development, TOUR Academy. “The Vail Golf Club is truly an ideal location for our camp programs for some many reasons ranging from the world-class facilities, the incredible weather, and just the stunning beauty of the area.  It is a perfect backdrop for our seasoned instruction staff to cultivate and support junior golfers in their respective pursuits for both skill development and game enjoyment.”

The TOUR Academy Vail summer camp will be led by Mike Johnson, an accomplished player at both the collegiate and professional level.  Johnson was elected PGA Class A Member in 1994 and was the Head Golf Professional at Lander Golf Club for many years.  Also teaching at the Vail camp is PGA Member Chris Johnson. This will be Chris’ fourth season at the golf club. Johnson is a graduate of the Professional Golf Management Program at Ferris State University in Michigan. All additional instruction team members have undergone a rigorous training program and are well-prepared to meet the developmental needs of the junior golfer.  Many have served as contributing writers for notable outlets such as PGATOUR.COM Golf Illustrated, and the Golf Channel, have served as coaches for top college golf teams, and have worked on an international basis with top junior players in Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and Singapore.  

“In that we have one of the finest instructor teams in the game, a parent can be assured that his or her junior golfer will receive best-in-class training,” Haddad said. “Combined with our outstanding facilities at Vail Golf Club and a robust program offering, we really feel the TOUR Academy is becoming a true leader in the junior golf instruction space.”

Additional TOUR Academy camp locations include some of the most recognized and celebrated golf facilities in the country, including Pebble Beach in California, TPC Sawgrass in Florida, TPC Scottsdale in Arizona, La Costa Resort in South California, Pine Ridge in New York, and TPC San Antonio in Texas.
