The New York Summer Golf Camp Program
The Mitchell Spearman summer golf camp is an opportunity for junior golfers from the ages of 6-16 to greatly improve their game. This is the most popular summer golf camp in New York and our most popular program by far. Why? Because each of our camp experiences are designed to build or improve on existing skills quickly. We make sure to utilize small groups and a refined curriculum that aids in the training process.
Each of our summer golf camp experiences cover skills ranging from the fundamentals right up through advanced course management. Strategy, skills training, nothing is left out. Students are divided into groups of similar skill, ability, and age that enable fast paced learning in a fun, safe, and effective environment. We cover all aspects of the game: full swing, pitching, chipping, and putting. Each golfer has their swing viewed and analyzed by Top-100 Instructor Mitchell Spearman.
A few other aspects that set us apart:
- Detailed video analysis by Mitchell Spearman and our coaches
- Detailed statistical tracking
- Games and challenges
- Developmental tournament opportunities
As our summer golf camp progresses students have the opportunity to take their skills out onto the course where instructors and assistants help optimize the golfer’s game. While on the golf course etiquette, time and course management are all stressed as important. Our staff ensures that students are learning about club selection, offers observations about conditions, and keeps up the pace of play. For beginners on the course our staff knows that it is about enjoying the experience and making it fun and we emphasize it.
A word about course time… It is not uncommon for summer golf campers to have 3 to 4 days per week in which they spend some time on the golf course. How much time on the course usually depends on which experience a golfer has and their skill level. The more weeks a golfer is with us the more opportunities they get to play on the course. Likewise beginners may spend a bit more of their time learning the game and working on the skills to be successful. When they ultimately step out on the course they are better prepared and ready to enjoy it! The camp structure provides for an abundance of golf course time. In addition to Doral Arrowwood more proficient and experienced players may have the opportunity to visit surrounding golf courses during the week for an even greater amount of supervised play.
Please note: Skill level and instructor assessment are the determinants in how much time your golfer will spend on the course. That said, EVERYONE GETS TO PLAY GOLF ON COURSE!

DIRECTIONS & LOCATION INFORMATION
We are located at 975 Anderson Hill Road in Rye Brook, NY. For directions please see the map on the DIRECTIONS page of our website: Directions to the Mitchell Spearman Golf Academy. When arriving at Doral Arrowwood stay to the left towards the golf shop and bag drop. You will pass one access road and make a second left into the parking area with the bag drop. A member of our staff is there roughly 15 minutes before the start of class to help direct golfers to the meeting area. We have access to driving, chipping, pitching, putting, and bunkers areas, not to mention a golf course, everything we need to maximize training.
We also offer “Camp +” Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday after summer golf camp from 3pm to 6pm for students requiring late pickup and those interested in more training and course play. Join us for afternoon summer golf camp by adding the option when you select your weeks or individually if not registered for camp.
We meet for summer golf camp each morning near the putting and chipping area next to the basketball courts / parking area. We ask that for the safety and well-being of all our junior golfers that you please drop-off and pick-up your golfer in the bag drop area near the Doral clubhouse (right behind Mulligan’s). From there the golfers will have a short walk to the meeting area just beyond the hedges relatively free of traffic and hazards. Please do not stop on either the access road or the main road as this can cause congestion and poses a danger to the golfers that may try to move in-between or get out of cars.
As campers arrive there will be signs out and a member of the staff to direct them to meeting area, from roughly 8:45am. Once at the meeting area another member of the staff will greet the golfers, give them their custom Mitchell Spearman Golf water bottle, and take lunch orders.
Traditional golf attire is required while participating in Mitchell Spearman Golf Academy activities. Short pants or long pants are both acceptable (denim is not allowed) and a collared shirt is required. Each golfer will receive a golf hat during their first week of camp. Golf shoes are not required but will help your junior while learning the game. Golf shoes are even more essential while golfers are on the course.
Lunch is provided each full day of summer golf camp. We have a whole menu of options to choose from.
DRINKS & HEAT
Throughout the day we take frequent water and sports drink breaks and maintain a constant supply of ice-cold water in coolers. We encourage the golfers to drink frequently and often. Hydration is crucial to athletic excellence and the temperatures can average in the low to mid 80s with occasional days reaching between 90 and 95 degrees. The golf course maintains sunblock in the locker rooms though we recommend your golfer bring a specific brand or strength based on his/her needs. As mentioned earlier, we provide refillable water bottles, please make sure your golfer has it each morning before leaving for summer golf camp.
Even though we ask nicely, sometimes the rain still decides to join us while we’re training. In the event of rain we do our best to get in touch with you and ask that you call us (800) 733-1653. The inclement weather plan will change day-to-day based on available options, please help us to keep you informed. If a rescheduling of dates occurs occurs we reserve the right to offer specific make-up days based on availability. We always do our best to accommodate changes in schedules and situations that may arise.

Many parents and guardians travel from the same areas and car pooling is always an option. We’re happy to facilitate car pooling when possible.
Each week during summer golf camp we award prizes. Most improved golfer, best sportsman and competition winners all earn something to take home. There are also other “mystery prizes” that appear once in a while…
To get the best out of the golfers we have a strict no parents rule during our summer golf camp. We understand you wish to see how your golfer is progressing but we ask you to take him/her out to play and judge their skills after camp to see this. Please share the camp information and rules with your golfer(s), the rules can be found here: **M S GOLF Summer Camp Rules**
