Weather experts claim we are heading for a warm, dry summer in 2023. So it could be the ideal time to get outdoors and enjoy the glorious conditions.
Golf is one classic example of how you can do this, and this year’s season is already well underway, so interest in the game is intensifying, with numerous professional events happening between now and September.
If there’s a junior golfer in your life, or a youngster who‘s interested in finding out more about the game, a residential camp offers numerous benefits, and the ideal introduction to the sport. The intensive programme of a camp boosts concentration and focus, while helping develop social skills and the tools needed to handle occasional adversity.
Equally, a week of golf ensures children learn the game properly from the outset, increasing their enjoyment of it while ensuring they don’t fall into bad habits, which can happen all too easily otherwise.
What golf camps we’re offering this summer
Mypro Golf is a leading provider of residential camps for juniors aged between nine and 17. Here’s what we’re running this summer:
The Open Golf Camp, St Andrews, July 8 – 15
Young golfers at this week-long camp will enjoy a day at the Genesis Scottish Open at the Renaissance Golf Club, North Berwick, where they can expect to see some of the world’s best players in action. (Part of the European Tours’ Rolex series, this is one of the golfing year’s top events.) Along with full-board accommodation, local and airport transfers, we include at least 12 hours’ coaching with PGA pros, on-course guidance and support plus five rounds of golf on five championship courses and video analysis of performance.
The Players Golf Camp, St Andrews, repeated throughout July
This week-long camp takes place at St Andrews, renowned as the home of golf. It offers all the benefits of the Open camp, along with participation in a local junior Open, plus the option to enter the ballot to play on the world-famous Old Course. All organised activities are included, as is 24/7 supervision by highly experienced staff.
This camp is aimed firmly at junior golfers, and incorporates full-game assessments so young players perform at their very best. Expect a committed, professional approach to training throughout the course of the week.
The Masters Golf Camp, St Andrews, three camps between July and mid-August
The Masters is our elite camp. The week focuses on improving performance and is aimed at motivating juniors to take their game to the next level. Expect a minimum of 14 hours’ training with PGA professionals, six rounds of play on championship course, three strength and conditioning sessions, plus participation in the St Andrews Junior Open and two hours of sport psychology. Again, there’s the chance to enter the ballot to play on the Old Course at St Andrews.
Using the latest technology, and the input of guest speakers, PGA professionals provide expert training covering the mental and physical aspects of shining at golf. We also give a strong insight into the benefits of training as part of a team, proper practice routines and tournament preparation.
There is a maximum handicap limit for this camp – of 9 for boys and 13 for girls.
We believe we offer the best golf training experience for any young golfer. And, of course, our location, in St Andrews, could hardly be bettered. Each day, all day, is all about the game, and every camp brings with it expert coaching, new friends and the chance to create lifelong memories.
