We’re thrilled that Rich Corsetti has returned to Somers National for his 10th season!

The focus of our program will be teaching basic golf techniques. Golf rules and etiquette will also be incorporated throughout.  Clinic participants will spend time on the range as well as on the golf course refining their skills while supervised by Rich Corsetti, director of instruction, and Jason Schmahl, assistant instructor with specific experience with youth training.  These techniques will help improve their games as well as behavior on and off the course.  Practice stations will be set up throughout the day to include: 1) swing mechanics, 2) grip, stance and ball striking, 3) driving, chipping and driving, and 4) on course management.   The instruction will be personal... only 4 students per instructor!

Frequently Asked Questions:

1.  Is this clinic open to beginners? Yes! We welcome all juniors at various levels.  We'll tailor the instruction based on individual need and have small groups arranged by their skill level.  With only 8 students per session, we'll be able to closely observe each student's development and progression.  Our goal is to have every student/camper create and enhance their love of the sport!

2.  Will golf clubs be provided?  We encourage any student who has their own clubs to bring them.  We do have junior club loaner sets available for our campers.

3.  Can my son/daughter be paired with a friend?  Given that the total size of the group will be no larger than 8, it's highly likely they will be together for most of the exercises and instruction.  More emphasis will be placed on instruction and pairings for that session will depend on the areas of focus.

4.  What are the drop off & pickup times?  Please plan to have your child dropped off before 9 am and picked up at 12:30 pm (for the morning session).  The drop off for the afternoon session is 12:30 with a 4 pm pickup for the afternoon session.  Lunch will end at 12:30 for the morning session and will start at 12:30 for the afternoon session.  Please let us know if your child as any allergies that we should be aware of.   A FAQ and waiver form will be sent out prior to the start of the Clinics.

5.  What if there is inclement weather?  We will send out a group text if there is inclement weather.  It is unlikely that we will cancel a session but if we do, Friday will be the make up day.

"The Best Camp Ever", "The Kids are Loving the Sport", and "The Clinic is an Amazing Value"... These are just some of the comments from parents after our clinics last summer at the Somers National Golf Club.
