SUMMER GOLF CAMP
Voted Best Junior Golf Instruction in Manhattan for 2014!!!
The Mitchell Spearman summer golf camp is an opportunity for junior golfers from the ages of 6-16 to greatly improve their game. Our camps have experienced nine years of excellence as one of the most elite and intensive junior golf camps in the country. Prepare for a whole new level of junior golf excellence!
The New York Summer Golf Camp Program
Mitchell Spearman Junior Golf camps are for the dedicated young golfer. We specialize in junior golf, working with golfers of all skill levels from those that just want to enjoy the game through improved play to those that want to compete and excel at the highest levels. We only ask that those coming to camp have a desire to learn and work as much and as hard as they can!
Each of our camp experiences are designed to build or improve on existing skills, covering the fundamentals of the game right up through advanced course management and detailed accounting of player statistics. 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 from full swing and the short game to putting, each golfer having their swing viewed and analyzed by Top 100 Instructor Mitchell Spearman.
A few other aspects that set up apart:
- Video analysis
- Launch monitor
- Detailed statistical tracking
- Games and challenges
- Developmental tournament opportunities
As camp progresses students have the opportunity to take their skills out onto the course where instructors and assistants help optimize the golfer’s game. Course management and etiquette are stressed each time the golfer is out on the course, often 3 to 4 times in a week depending on the golfer’s ability. In addition to Doral Arrowwood more proficient and experienced players will have the opportunity to visit surrounding golf courses during the week for an even greater amount of supervised play.
Please note: Beginners will spend the majority of their time learning the game and working on the skills to be successful when they ultimately step out on the course. Skill level and instructor assessment are the determinants in how much time your golfer will spend on the 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 meet 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, they are even more essential while golfers are on the course.
Lunch is provided each day, 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 as 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 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 because the inclement weather plan will change day-to-day based on available options.
Summer camps are a minimum of one week but In the event that your golfer needs to reschedule we ask for a minimum of 48 hours’ notice. We reserve the right to offer specific make-up days based on availability and will do our best to accommodate changes in schedules and situations that may arise. Additional information can be found on the camp rules and policy page of our website: Summer Camp Policies
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 the camp we award prizes for most improved golfer and best sportsman (and maybe another mystery category or two). There are also other prizes up for grabs during some of the golf competitions we have.
To get the best out of the golfers we have a strict no parents rule during 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: ** THE M.S.GOLF RULES **
