Booking a golf camp
To book your child on a camp, simply go to the “Book Now” page of our website and complete the application form. Once you have submitted the application form we will get in touch to confirm your child’s place on the camp and provide instructions regarding payment.
There is no specific deadline, but places are limited and tend to fill up quickly so please apply early to avoid disappointment!
Staying with Mypro
Based on our own experiences as campers and feedback from past campers, the ideal stay is 2 or 3 weeks. A week goes so quickly that when the time comes to go back home, we find that juniors just don’t want to (sorry Mum and Dad)!
While a 1-week camp allows you to experience the world-renowned St Andrews golf courses, town and coaching, our multi-week stays represent not only the best value, but were created to maximize your child’s training and provide the greatest level of improvement. For those whose native language is not English, a longer stay really helps to improve their English enormously. We’ve been amazed at the level of improvement that previous juniors have shown over 2-3 weeks.
All campers will require appropriate clothing for golf, including polo-shirts and golf shoes. After registration we will send out a comprehensive packing list to make sure that your junior has everything that they will need for camp!
If a junior struggles with English, don’t worry, we will always try to help! We encourage juniors to have at least a basic level of English but we do have a number of multi-lingual staff looking after the juniors each week. This will help to ensure that they get the most from the week, understanding the coaches, staff and making new friends with the different campers!
We have computers at the accommodation which the campers will be allowed to use at certain times of the day and under supervision. Unrestricted internet access will be available to the juniors, should they wish to use their own tablet or smart phone to stay in touch with family. Alternatively, you are always welcome to phone us and we will pass you on your child. Phone calls will generally only be accepted at the end of the day so as not to interfere with camp activities.
The number of campers varies for each camp. Whichever camp you choose, we always make sure that campers receive coaching within small groups. With a combination of group coaching, individual coaching and completely personalised instruction available, our campers always leave having had a great time but also having improved their golf!
Campers will stay near the centre of town, in a St Andrews University halls of residence. This is a comfortable and safe home for the juniors for the duration of their stay.Breakfasts and dinners are provided here.

We will always try to house siblings or friends in the same room when requested, however, we cannot guarantee this. Also, it is our policy for boys and girls to stay in different areas of the accommodation, therefore it is not possible for them to share even when they are brother and sister or friends.
Travelling to St Andrews
The flights are not included in the camp price. It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to book appropriate flights.
The airport to fly into is Edinburgh airport. A uniformed member of Mypro staff will be at the airport on the designated arrival day to welcome the juniors and a member of staff will accompany the juniors during the transfer to St Andrews. Transfer from Edinburgh are included within the camp fee.
For those not able to fly to Edinburgh, Glasgow airport is a good alternative. Mypro can arrange for a private transfer for any juniors arriving into alternative destinations. This will incur an additional cost depending on the airport and number of juniors being transferred.
Safety and Security
At Mypro the safety and welfare of our juniors is our number one priority. Throughout our camps, juniors are well supervised by trained staff. When juniors arrive at Mypro, they are introduced to their group and the Mypro staff who are available 24 hours per day to provide pastoral care and support throughout the camp. The setting of our camps, St Andrews, is renown as a safe University town offering a fun yet exciting environment for juniors to have one of the best experiences of their lives.
The key to any great golf school is the staff. At Mypro Golf Camp we pride ourselves on having some of the best junior golf instructors in the country. Our staff is made up of multi-lingual PGA Professionals, Equipment specialists and players that have a great knowledge of the golf swing and love teaching kids. The members of the Mypro Team will supervise the juniors 24/7. We are a qualified, experienced, PVG checked and First Aid trained team and the safety of the juniors is always our priority.
With plenty of staff to keep student ratios low, the experience and availability of our staff will not only guarantee that each junior will learn a lot about golf, but more importantly have a great golf camp experience.
All juniors must purchase suitable travel insurance that covers them while abroad. Once a junior has been accepted by Mypro, they will be sent an information pack requesting full details of health and travel insurance.
If you need any advice about the type of travel insurance to purchase please do not hesitate to contact us.
This will depend on the golf camp and full details of programmes can be found here. Please click on the different camp options and scroll to the bottom of the page to see what a typical week will look like.
Every Mypro Golf Camp features a lot of on course time in addition to the golf coaching and other activities throughout the week. While with us, campers will have the opportunity to play a number of the finest courses in St Andrews. All of our selected courses are featured on ‘The courses’ page with more information about them.
There are only so many golf balls you can hit and so many rounds of golf you play so we have a host of other activities lined up throughout the camps. Juniors will be grouped into ‘camp teams’ which will allow fun, friendly competitions to take place throughout the weeks. This will include tournaments on the golf courses, in addition to beach activities, foot-golf, crazy putting challenges, orienteering and other activities. During the evening, there will also be the facility for friendly games of football/soccer, board games, cinema trips and more.
All golf coaching is delivered by the fully qualified PGA Professional’s from St Andrews.
