HOUSTON - The University of Houston golf program will host the Cougar Golf Academy camp at Redstone Golf Club, beginning July 24, head coach Jonathan Dismuke recently announced.
The camp, which runs through July 27, will be held at Redstone Golf Club, the home of Houston Cougar Golf. It is designed for male and female golfers, ages 8-18, and costs $525 to participate. Camp begins at 9 a.m., and runs until 3:30 p.m., each day.
"We welcome all young golfers to the Cougar Golf Academy for our annual summer camp," said Dismuke, who recently led the Cougars to the NCAA Athens Regional, the program's first postseason team appearance since 2006. "Our campers always have fun at this event while learning great lessons that will develop and improve their games."
Campers will learn all aspects of the game, including long game, short game, putting, bunker play and the all-important mental aspects. They will receive instruction from top coaches in Houston on course management techniques, drills and other situations.

Time: 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., each day
Cost is $525 to attend. Checks or money orders should be made payable to University of Houston men's golf.
Interested campers can register on-line at HoustonGolfCamp.com. Campers also can mail their payments to University of Houston Men's Golf, 3100 Cullen Blvd., Rm 2011, Houston, TX 77204.
Campers will receive hands-on instruction from top collegiate coaches, student-athletes and high school coaches with a 4-to-1 coach-to-camper ratio.
Participants also will have a chance to work inside the Dave Williams Golf Academy at Redstone Golf Club. The new home for Houston Golf features four indoor/outdoor hitting bays with the latest technology, including a Launch Monitor for players to practice length, dispersion and trajectories of any shot.
In addition, a SAM PuttLab can take ultrasound measurements of the putting strokes and displays information in simple graphic reports. A 3-dimensional biomechanical measuring system helps refine the way a player's body should properly move during a golf swing.
At the end of camp, campers will leave with individual game plans for player development, which includes Aimpoint green reading techniques, short game development and TPI fitness.
Each camper will receive a UH goodie bag along with a camp photo.
