St Andrews Golf Camp first began in 2012 and since then has connected juniors from across the world through the love of golf and St Andrews, fusing amazing friendships that were made to last a lifetime.
Wanting to create ‘the best golf camp in the world’, Jamie and Marc knew they would have to work hard, and that is what they did! Golf is not only a hobby but a way of life to their young family and has taken them across the world, opening many doors and allowed them to meet many interesting people. It has given them the confidence to set up their own businesses and most importantly it has given them friends for life along the way. They wanted to grow the game and share this vision with young juniors from across the world.
After falling in love with St Andrews, they realised that junior golf lacked a lot of support and made it their mission to change that. Over the past 11 years they have forged lasting relationships with the local people and businesses of St Andrews, including The Links Academy, St Leonard’s, St Andrews University and the several golf courses throughout Scotland. Their dreams have come true as year on year they welcome these kids who go home better, more passionate golfers.
