Summer golf camp, which targets beginners through advanced golfers from ages 9 to 15, and helps youth learn and improve his/her game will be offered through August 26.
Students will learn how to golf and how to improve their game from PGA Teaching Professional Carlos Rodriguez at the 9-course, par-3 Heroes golf course at the West L.A. VA Campus.
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 25 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. 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. Full day, 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. ($150 per day) or half day 9:30 a.m.to 12:30 p.m. or 1 to 4 p.m. ($100) are available. (Youth golfers may attend on a daily basis.)
