DUKE GOLF | ELITE CAMP
The Elite School Session is designed to give high school and even older middle school golfers an in-depth look into what being a Division I collegiate golfer is all about. The Elite Session is open to all Male golfers age 14-18 who are interested in playing collegiate golf (Enrollment is capped at the first 12 students to ensure a very low staff to camper ratio, and even more relevantly, to replicate the feel of living a day in the life of a collegiate golfer at the Division I level).
The Elite School is specifically designed to give middle school and high school golfers an in depth look into the life of a Division I collegiate golfer. Upon arrival, each student will be given their assigned locker in the Karcher-Ingram Golf Center, complete with respective engraved nameplate. They will also be outfitted with Nike gear including but not limited to: text books, other golf-related instruction books chosen by the staff, golf hats, time management planner, book bag, yardage book kit, t-shirt, golf balls, and DGS alignment sticks.
As with each camp, Elite students will have full- access to all Varsity practice facilities and technologies. In order to give each student the full collegiate experience, this session is limited to the first twelve (12) students to enroll. During the Elite School, students will be engaged in the following:
- The meaning of being a "Student-Athlete"
- Utilizing effective study habits during the playing season
- Strength training with Duke University Athletic Staff
- On-course tournament preparation with Coach Jamie Green
- Sample Duke Blue Devil team practice sessions with Coach Green & support staff
- Q & A with current and former collegiate players and coaches
"After completing the Elite School last year, Mark now has a better understanding of what it means to be a collegiate golfer. The coaches really instilled the importance of maintaining a good GPA and using proper time-management. The school was definitely the highlight of his summer! He got to be a Duke Golfer for few days- he loved it!"
