ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Registration for the 2014 University of New Mexico Men’s Golf Junior Camp is now available online.
The camp is available for boys and girls ages 5-18 at the UNM Championship Golf Course. Directed by Lobo men’s golf coaches Glen Millican and Jim Garren, the four-day Lobo Junior Golf Camp will provide your child with the instruction and counseling required to excel and enjoy the game of golf.
The Lobos are back-to-back Mountain West Conference champions, have six conference titles overall and finished No. 5 in the nation in 2013.
Campers will receive comprehensive instruction that will focus on improving fundamentals in the areas of the swing, chipping, pitching, putting, course management skills, and video analysis. Campers will be grouped by ages and skill levels. Each group will be guided by a skilled instructor and counseled throughout the camp.
In addition to the coaching staff from UNM, instruction will be provided by some of the current players on the Lobo men’s golf team. Guest appearances from touring professionals will be provided for clinics as their schedules permit.
Stations will be set up for each aspect of the game with prizes available at each stop along the way.
Campers also will have access to the Lobo Golf Center, a state-of-the-art video and swing analysis center that will allow them to see their swing on video. This will help serve as a measuring point for campers as they develop their game and ready themselves for more advanced levels. All participants also will have access to the University of New Mexico Championship Golf Course driving range, putting greens, practice bunkers, practice holes and practice area.
- Educational seminars also will be available on the following topics:

All campers will be fully supervised from the time they arrive at the Championship Course until the time they are picked up. Campers’ safety will be the first priority while attending the camp.
