If you’re traveling to the Charleston area this summer, and want to keep your kids constructively occupied (hopefully while you play some golf), Brandon Ray has a plan that works for you and your youngsters: summer-long junior golf camps at his Lowcountry Lessons Academy at Patriots Point in Mount Pleasant.

Ray, a certified instructor through U.S. Kids Golf with more than 10 years teaching experience, is offering a wide array of instruction plans, including private lessons (8 a.m.-9 p.m. daily at the Patriots Point lighted range), at Patriots Point, located just across the Arthur Ravenel Bridge from downtown Charleston,. For most families, a relatively low-cost introduction to the game for children is one of Ray’s junior camps this summer.

The camps this summer for ages 7-14 run Monday-Friday from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. The first started this week; future weeks are July 8, July 29 and Aug. 5. Also available are Ray’s clinics, Mondays and Wednesdays at 4 p.m. or Saturdays at 2 p.m.

Ray, an Atlanta native, is a member of the U.S. Kids Golf Top 50 instructors (honorable mention) and has eight years teaching experience including five years in Charleston. He studied under Mike Perpich, a Golf Magazine Top 100 instructor; Ted Fort, the 2006 Georgia PGA Teacher of the Year; and David Orr, 2012 Carolinas PGA Teacher of the Year, and earned a degree and his PGA of America license at Campbell University’s Pro Golf Management Program. He has taught at three courses in Georgia as well as Briar’s Creek on Johns Island.

Ray also offers private lessons by appointment for juniors. For more information, call (843) 329-9119 or click here.
