Chateau Golf & Country Club in Kenner, LA near New Orleans hosts full day summer golf camps in 2019.

SAN RAFAEL, Calif., July 20, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Nike Junior Golf Camps announced the addition of a new camp location at Chateau Golf & Country Club in Kenner, Louisiana for 2019. Nike Junior Golf Camps, Chateau Golf & Country Club offered two weeks of full day camp for members of the club and their guests, running Tuesday – Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. daily. Fernando Ritzman, an experienced Nike Camp coach and PGA Head Golf Professional, lead the camps with the club's assistant instructors assisting on staff.

"Chateau is a stunning facility and a perfect place for young golfers to improve," says Westy McQueen of Nike Junior Golf Camps. "Coupled with Fernando's passion for junior development and growing the game in New Orleans, we are confident we have found a perfect fit. The first two sessions at Chateau have gone amazingly and we've received several rave reviews from parents."

Fernando Ritzman recently accepted the role of head golf professional at Chateau Golf & Country Club after working as an assistant professional at Bayou Oaks at City Park, another Nike Junior Golf Camp facility. Fernando is a PGA certified teaching professional and also serves as assistant coach for the Loyola University New Orleans Men's and Women's Golf Teams.

"I am very excited about our partnership with Nike Junior Golf Camps," says Fernando Ritzman. "Having previous experience with the camp at Bayou Oaks, I know Westy and his team do a great job getting us ready for the camp and making those weeks very enjoyable for not only the campers but the coaches as well. Here at Chateau, the idea is to have the kids want to come back every day. We provide a fun, instruction-based camp and hopefully the kids leave with more skills and a knowledge of the game. But most of all, I hope they have a great time."

Chateau Golf & Country Club is a private, Par 72 championship golf facility equipped with a historic clubhouse, tournament-grade tennis facility, and pool. The course has hosted events for organizations such as the Louisiana Golf Association, USGA and PGA.
