Rescheduling and Make-up Policy:

Summer Camps: We ask that you make every effort to attend your scheduled camp days. Each camp day is a building process and consistency does make a difference with your progress. The unpredictable summer weather, the availability of the many practice areas around the facility, and the varying course schedule determine daily activities so that each day offers a different and unique opportunity to learn and get better. Thus, a Wednesday one week may have the campers on the course playing a few holes yet put on video in the Learning center the next week.

If you are unable to attend a scheduled camp week or individual day you must notify Eric MacCluen Golf in writing via e-mail to: hollymaccluen@yahoo.com in advance to find another camp week/day to attend. In an effort to provide appropriate staffing, the courtesy of written notification one week prior to the registered week or 24 hours prior to the day is required. A missed camp week/day notified after that time will not be rescheduled, regardless of the nature for not attending. Please be advised that with proper advanced written notification we will make every effort to reschedule a missed week/day at a suitable time for both parties. However, we will not reschedule any camp week/day past the current season. A $25 change fee applies for a rescheduled week and a $5 change fee applies for each rescheduled day. This fee will be due at drop-off of the newly scheduled week or day.

Return Check Policy:

A $25 Returned Check Fee will be charged for all checks returned unpaid by the bank. Original payment amount will be due immediately along with the additional returned check fee. If we need to charge you member account a 3% convenience fee will be added to the total amount due. No exceptions!
