Mission Inn Resort & Club: Hub for Central Florida’s Summer Camps For Junior Golfers, Tennis Players, Families

HOWEY-IN-THE-HILLS, Fla. (April 18, 2017) – Mission Inn Resort & Club is a prime location for summer learning experiences for junior golfers and tennis players, as well as their families. A hub of activity in a peaceful setting, the destination nestles amid central Florida citrus groves and a natural chain of lakes, only 35 minutes from Orlando.

For junior golfers, Mission Inn Resort hosts two different camps from June 11 to Aug. 5, including:

  • The Gary Gilchrist Golf Academy, which will host a series of summer camp weeks that provide junior golfers the opportunity to “Train Like A Champion” at the same training home of three of the LPGA Tour’s top six players – Lydia Ko, Ariya Jutanugarn, and Shanshan Feng, plus the PGA Tour’s Morgan Hoffmann. The Academy offers single camp weeks, multiple week packages and a two-week tournament camp offering attendees an opportunity for competitive play. Boarding and non-boarding options are available.

  • The Bishops Gate Golf Academy with programs built uniquely for individuals based on their goals, aspirations, strengths, tournament schedule, and areas of improvement. Bishops utilizes its own coaching model — which it has dubbed “POD” — that consists of a senior coach with extensive experience and training in junior golf development directing a POD of coaches and students. The senior coach oversees all aspects of the student development from assessments, creating the student blueprint to monitoring and reporting on progress throughout the year.
