February 6, 2015 – US Sports Camps announced plans to offer Nike Junior Golf Camps thirty miles north of Chicago at Pine Meadow Golf Club, which debuted in 1986 as Golf Digest’s “Best New Public Golf Course in America,” and is consistently ranked in the top 25 courses, public or private, in the state.
