Golf summer camp stays cool because it's indoorsBY JEFF BERLINICKE

TAMPA - What's wrong with kids taking a golf club and a golf ball and breaking some windows just for the fun of it?
That's the philosophy at the Golfer's Grail off Dale Mabry Highway in Tampa, where kids can attend an indoor golf summer camp that runs throughout the summer under the supervision of owner Jeff Sproat and PGA apprentices Jason Sproat and Shaun Van Patten. Kids get a chance to play golf on the more than 60 golf simulators that include famous golf courses from all over the world, but the camp is more about fun than trying to birdie No. 12 at Augusta or the Road Hole at St. Andrews.
There are putting greens and putting contests, and also simulators that allow kids to fire shots through glass windows. The noise and the broken glass is all simulated, but the effects are pretty realistic, and a lot of fun for kids who want to wreak a little bit of havoc.
