Boys and girls ages 11 and older. All skill levels are welcome, but high school graduates are
not eligible to attend.
$1,700.00 for the week.
A $850.00 registration fee is due with the application. The final payment of $850.00 is due by the start of the week the student will be attending. Once a student is accepted, $100.00 of the total payment is non-refundable for any reason. Two weeks before the Academy begins, $850.00 becomes non-refundable. A $125.00 KEY DEPOSIT CHECK (do not charge this on your credit card) for damages, dorm key, and dorm entry card is required by Duke University and is due before the Academy begins. The deposit check will be returned at check-out when the key and the card are returned, and the dorm rooms have been checked for damages.
It is assumed that your child is covered under your hospitalization plan and no arrangements have been made to cover him or her under a special policy. A HEALTH FORM will be sent to you once the application has been received.
CHECK-IN AND DEPARTURE
Registration will be held at the Karcher Ingram Golf Center at The Duke University Golf Club from 11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. on the first day of each week. At registration, each student must turn in his or her HEALTH FORM, PARTICIPATION AGREEMENT, and KEY DEPOSIT CHECK (made out to Duke Academy of Golf), unless it has already been submitted. Departure flights from Raleigh-Durham Airport (RDU) should not be booked earlier than 3:00 p.m. on the final day and no later than 8:00 p.m.
NO AIRPORT TRANSPORTATION
We no longer provide transportation to and from the airport, so transportation plans will need to be made by parents for those flying in to attend the Academy. We have provided this in the past, but unfortunately the constant airline/weather issues have made it a task too difficult for us to continue.
Golf shoes can be worn but are not necessary. Each student will be expected to bring his or her own set of golf clubs. Name labels are strongly encouraged.
FACILITIES AND ACCOMMODATIONS
Students will stay in residential halls on West Campus (near the Duke Chapel). We do not have accommodations for students who arrive the day before or who leave the day after the Academy is in session. The learning facilities are superb, including four practice greens, an indoor skills center, plenty of hitting space, state-of-the-art video bays, a large air-conditioned classroom adjacent to the practice
range, and a Robert Trent Jones/Rees Jones redesigned course.
Dinner on registration day will be the first meal provided (for the students only). Three meals a day will be served the next three days, then on the last day breakfast will be our final meal.
