Given the recent posts on College Programs, College Golfers and Academies/Camps, was wondering if anyone had any thoughts or experience with these, particularly the multi-day camps; here's an example:

https://collegegolfc...princeton-2018/

The list of coaches attending seems pretty impressive, and while I'm sure the instruction/workshops/lectures are informative, this seems more like a way for coaches to see kids that may have flown under the radar (or at least parents of kids to think that this buys their junior access and gets them exposure to the coaches?)

Thoughts?

You are paying for college coaches to look at your kids.  I think it is a quick and easy way to ensure that college coaches see your kid.  I think the best times for it would be 13/14 to put your kid on the college recruiting map.  The  16-18 if you are not on the radar and need help for a college coach to see you.  The problem with 16-18 is that the coaches attending these camps pretty much have their classes filled for those age groups as they are usually higher profile programs that attend these events.  The 16-18 year old need to look at more D2, D3, and NAIA at that point in my opinion.

Thanks HH.

Seems like an expensive way to get a coach's attention.

The website says ages 10-18, but I wonder what the value proposition is for a 10-12yo, given they are years away from the recruiting process, and so much can change in their game as well as personnel (coach) changes at the programs themselves.

I talked to a coach at an SEC school that used to work at our club because I have a 10 year old Iím thinking about sending to their overnight camp. He said itís long days, lots of golf and lots of heat but for the younger kids that ďhave the bugĒ itís an awesome experience. We are using it in place of other types of overnight camps that my son isnít that interested in.

Itís also a chance for kids to get away from home and learn some independence. They practice and play a good portion of the day without their parents standing over them the whole time. Heavy has sent his son to FSUís camp and a friend of mine is sending his son to Clemsonís camp this year and he is 10. They have a great time.

Less expensive than playing AJGA.  These camps may have 20+ coaches there.  AJGA Open may have zero.  You know the coaches will be at these camps because they are paid to be there.  One of theses camps is going to cost around $2000.  Five AJGA’s is going to be close to $1000 each.  $285 registration fee, 4-5 nights in a hotel another $450, food gas wear and tear on the car another $300.
