Golf Summer Camps for Juniors

Kids learn to play golf at camp, with instructor Carlos Rodriguez.

Another great choice for juniors with free time on their hands this summer is learning to play golf. This is an all-ages sport that one can play well into retirement.

PGA Professional Carlos Rodriguez helps golfers from ages 9 to 15 at the 9-course, par-3 Heroes golf course on the L.A. VA campus.

He works with beginners through advanced golfers on learning or improving the game.

All aspects of the game covered including grip, swing, stance, balance, teeing off, fairway play, pitching/chipping, putting out, club selection, course management, rules and golf etiquette.

The pro has more than 30 years of teaching experience. He worked as the assistant golf professional at Indian Springs Country Club in Silver Spring, Maryland, before moving to Los Angeles and the Penmar Golf Course in Venice.

In 2013, Rodriguez moved to the nine-hole golf course at the VA because he found young students often had difficulty waiting for tee times on Penmar. The Heroes Course is nicely manicured and a well-kept secret, so players rarely have to wait to tee-off.

Rodriguez’s golf philosophy centers on harmony between the physical and mental aspects of the golf game. He is a positive and encouraging instructor.

The camp runs Monday through Friday through August 16. Full day, 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. ($150 per day) or half day 9:30 12:30 p.m. or 1 to 4 p.m. ($100) are available.  (Youth golfers may attend on a daily basis.) Call: (310) 230-2052 or email: or visit:
