Next-Level Golf Training

IMG Academy golf camps teach the fundamentals as well as the mental and physical portions of the game. Ideal for campers between the ages of 8-18, our golf camps stress a balance of training not just for driving, mid-range and putting, but also ensuring that every golfer understands how to properly prepare for competition.

Our junior golf camps give athletes the opportunity to build core strength, improve their game on the course, and hone performance-specific skills. Our completely customizable boarding and non-boarding golf camps give junior golfers the skills they need to excel at every level.

Coach Spotlight

Scott Bettger - Coach

For over 20 years, Scott Bettger has been coaching and motivating students of all ages in the game of golf. Despite playing professionally for four years, Scott’s intention was never to become a professional golfer; instead he was more focused on teaching the game from course management and strategy to the fundamentals.

The facilities and coaching were excellent, I recevied personal attention providing a better understanding of my swing mechanics to maximize power for both my iron play and long-game.
