Camp Creek Summer Golf Programs
The St. Joe Company announces the Origins Course at WaterSound – a ground-breaking “concept” course designed for families and beginners by Davis Love III – and Tom Fazio-designed Camp Creek Golf Club will host a variety of summer programs in concert with the PGA of America’s Family Golf Month in July.
Families across the country are encouraged to play golf together during “Family Golf Month,” a Play Golf America program designed to provide a structured, yet casual opportunity for families to learn the game. Launched in 2004, Play Golf America is a player development initiative focusing on new and occasional golfers -- a combined group of 31 million individuals.
“Family Golf Month is about growing the game from the junior level up, and engaging golfers in multi-generational play,” says Jaxon Hardy, head professional at Camp Creek. “The Origins Course’s unique layout – with six regulation holes, an executive course set-up, and 10 par 3s --and non-penal design provides the ideal setting for our summer programs.”
The following family and junior programs are offered this summer:
Junior Golf Camps (8 years and up) – These four-day camps run Tuesday-Friday at Camp Creek and Origins Course, with sessions from June 17-20, June 24-27 and July 8-11. A tournament preparation camp for experienced juniors is offered at the Origins Course July 14-17 (Monday through Thursday). Camps are open to members, resort guests and homeowners at $175 per participant and include PGA instruction, instructional booklets, visors, golf balls, refreshments, daily prize drawings, contests and a hamburger and hotdog party
Beginner Teens Tournament (open to the public) – Junior golfers age 11-18 are invited to play in this two-person scramble, held every Tuesday at 2 p.m. at Camp Creek throughout the summer months. Novices and first-time golfers are welcomed, with clubs provided at no extra charge if needed. The fee is $15 per player (cart fee is extra).
Family Golf Outing Afternoon at The Origins Course (open to the public) – Starting at 2 p.m. each Wednesday in July and August, a golf professional will tour the course offering instruction and tips to family members. Regular adult and junior rates apply.
Family Promotion (open to the public) – All summer, kids 15 and under play free at The Origins Course when accompanied by a paying adult.
