Introduction to Links Golf - Attend Scottish Open

Introduction to Links Golf - Attend Scottish Open 7th - 14th Jul, '20

Our ‘Introduction to Links Golf’ Camp, is a 7-night camp designed for juniors who can play a minimum of 9 holes.

This is a fantastic introduction to learning the art of links golf for juniors who are keen to experience it for the first time in The Home of Golf. The juniors will receive coaching at The Links Academy and will play golf each day on one of the links courses in and around St Andrews. They will get the chance to explore the town on their rest day, and also visit the golf museum. Although this is not a beginner’s camp, it is the perfect platform to provide the basic Links Golf skills and experience needed to progress on to our Development Camp the year after.

St Andrews - Our Home Town

St Andrews is an old and magical town, steeped in history, fairy tales and golf. Infamously known the world over as The Home of Golf and an Open Venue, it is a dream for every golfer to visit and play. This makes St Andrews a once in a lifetime golfing destination for many every year, and a very special and inspirational place for juniors to come and walk in the footsteps of great golfing legends. This alone makes visiting the hallowed golfing turf around St Andrews an unforgettable experience which will stay with juniors their whole life.
 
During their time at camp, juniors get to embrace the magic of life in St Andrews and be part of a beautiful community with all its history and traditions. Each evening we dine at different restaurants around the town allowing the juniors to get a ‘taste of Scotland', although they don’t have to try haggis unless they want to! They will receive a tour of the town where they get a chance to see the historic sites of St Andrews Castle, the Cathedral, and the Old Course itself, with the R&A Clubhouse, Swilken Bridge and the 1st and 18th holes. The town is also home to two stunning beaches, golf shops and of course the British Golf Museum which they too will get a chance to explore. Spending time in this ancient and very special town with friends from across the world, will not only broaden their appreciation of the golfing world, but is guaranteed to be an incredible cultural experience they will never forget.
