Program Options

The Overnight Camp begins on Sunday afternoon and includes overnight accommodations, meals, and all golf activities. The Day Camp option begins on the Monday morning following the start of the overnight camp, and includes all golf instruction, lunch, and course play. Day campers are dropped off and picked up at the golf course each day and participate in golf activities from 8:45am - 4:00pm.

Registration Packets

A detailed camper registration packet containing check in location, health/release forms, emergency contact info, and a list of things to bring will be emailed to all registered campers in the spring.

Transportation

We recommend that campers flying to camp arrive at Oakland Airport or San Francisco Int'l Airport. Both airports have shuttle services and recommended ground transportation with routes to campus. Campers must secure their own transportation to and from the airport.

Supervision

Campers are supervised 24 hours a day. The staff lives in the dormitories/resort accommodations with the campers and participates in evening activities. Drugs, alcohol and tobacco are strictly prohibited, and constitute, along with general misconduct, grounds for dismissal from camp without a refund.

Metropolitan Golf Links

In the tradition of the great links courses, The Metropolitan Golf Links is wide open. There's even some heather and clusters of native grasses to add to the ambiance. But the fairways are mostly open and the greens are large and receptive so that even the high-handicapper can get around expeditiously. Miller and Bliss have designed the course so that the low-handicapper will have to think his or her way around the course to score well. The Metropolitan Golf Links is strong enough from the back tees to serve the needs of the Cal Bears Golf program.

University of California, Berkeley

The University of California, Berkeley (voted the No. 1 public university in the world) is nestled in the hills of Berkeley, CA, overlooking the Oakland skyline and San Francisco beyond. It was founded in 1868, born out of a vision in the State Constitution of a university that would "contribute even more than California's gold to the glory and happiness of advancing generations."

    Best golf camp

    "My daughter said this was the best golf camp she had ever been to. She liked that there were other golfers as enthusiastic about golf as she is. She also said the coaches were awesome."

    Walker made the camp fun

    "My son enjoyed having Walker Huddy as a camp staff member. Walker made the camp fun and even adjusted my son's driver for a better fit."

    Little one-on-one instruction

    "The age range of the campers was too broad to meet the needs of all. There was very little one-on-one instruction given and the last 60-90 minutes of each day were spent on activities suited to a very young audience. It also appeared that the staff spent significantly more time with the younger female attendees, almost as if it was a future recruiting opportunity."

    Great Experience

    "My son expressed how much he loved the camp and the instructors and wanted to participate again! This was his first golf camp and he was excited to go every morning. He did express how he was going to miss the camp, the kids, and especially the staff! It was a great experience for all! Keep up the great work and looking forward to more Cal Golf camps!"
