Pine Needles started one of the first ever junior golf camps in America.  Since 1969 we've delivered superior golf instruction to kids aged 9–16, with emphasis on building proper swings in a fun atmosphere.  Solid fundamentals are the foundation of a good swing and the start of a life-long passion for the game.  But that's just the beginning.

Youth will see improvement in their full swing, putting, short game and course management.  Students will learn how to practice like a pro, master bunker shots and get the ball closer in the scoring zone! Each student will have their swing analyzed on video.  We work with each players' skills, encouraging each to improve within his or her own ability.

Peggy Kirk Bell and her family have been conducting golf schools for over 50 years.  When your child attends a Golfari he or she becomes "one of the family." From the moment they drop off their clubs, our caring and friendly staff will handle your child's every need.  All they have to do is relax and have fun.

Two exciting highlights of the Golfari are the Staff Scramble and Camp Championship.  We cordially invite your junior golfers to join us during one, two or all three of our summer sessions.

When you get to Pine Needles you'll instantly be part of a team. We have the "Pines Team" and the "Needles Team" and throughout the camp it's a really fun rivalry! Every day the "Pines Team" faces off against the "Needles Team" in golf tournaments and at night the competition continues with fun contests like kickball, tug of war, the biggest "Slip-and-Slide" in North Carolina and much more!
