Nike College Showcase Golf Camps:
US Sports Camps is proud to offer its Nike College Showcase Camps for competitive young golfers looking to gain insight and exposure to the world of collegiate golf. The college recruiting landscape can be very confusing and competitive, so our goal is to provide players and their parents with a “one-stop shop” for exposure and recruitment education. At each camp, players participate in an array of college golf-centric seminars and are guaranteed one-on-one time with our head and assistant coaches on staff. The programs also offer tournament-style course play each day of camp, where players can showcase their skills for the guest coaches in attendance. Hosted at some of the nation’s most highly regarded golf resorts, these programs are a truly remarkable experience.
Peggy Kirk Bell Golf Tour:
Founded in 2007 by Girls Golf of America, a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization, as a local girls’ golf tour in the Triad region of North Carolina. The Tour began as a simple concept: create more effective competitive playing opportunities for girls. By utilizing innovative yardage-based divisions instead of the traditional age-based format, the Tour focuses on developing tournament experience at the player’s pace. The 2023 season will feature over 130 tournaments across the country including over 2,500 girls, the PKBGT is the largest girl’s only Tour in the country.
