Frequently asked questions
Booking A Golf Camp
To book your child on our golf camp, simply complete the form found here. 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!
Every camp features a lot of on-course time in addition to the golf coaching and other activities. The exact programme will depend on the camp (Players Camp, Open Camp, Masters Camp or Winter Camp) and full details can be found on the camp pages.
While with us, campers will have the opportunity to play many the finest courses in St Andrews. The courses played each week may vary depending on availability and difficulty. All our selected courses are featured on the ‘St Andrews Courses’ page with more information about them.
Activities outside of golf include beach games, football, foot-golf, crazy-golf, orienteering, movie nights, ping-pong and more! During the Open Camp, an excursion day is also organised to visit the Scottish Open Championship.
All golf coaching is delivered by our team of fully qualified PGA Professionals. The pros use state-of-the-art technology to deliver the best and most effective coaching experience. The ratio during the lessons is 1/8 maximum and 1/6 for The Masters Camp. All juniors will also receive plenty of 1:1 coaching throughout all camp programmes.
Travelling To St Andrews, Scotland
The flights are not included in the camp price. It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to book appropriate flights, but we are always happy to help parents find the perfect flights. If you need our assistance, do not hesitate to contact us.
The airport to fly into is Edinburgh Airport.
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.
Yes. A uniformed member of Mypro staff will be at the airport on the designated arrival day to welcome the juniors and will drive them to St Andrews. Transfers between Edinburgh Airport and St Andrews are included within the camp fee.
If under 16, children travelling alone may have to use the Unaccompanied Minor Service of the airline they are flying with. Please check with your airline for more details.
If you can’t find any flights which meet our guidelines, please get in touch and we’ll be happy to help.
Staying At Mypro Golf Camp
Based on 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)!
A 1-week camp allows you to experience the world-renowned St Andrews golf courses, town and coaching. But our multi-week stays were created to maximize your child’s training and provide the greatest level of improvement both in golf and English.
Juniors get to play 18 holes every day on the busy courses of St Andrews, where pace of play is taken very seriously. Therefore, our camp is not suitable for beginner golfers and we recommend that juniors hold an official golf handicap or have plenty of experience playing 18 holes.
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!
Aside from golf equipment, all campers will require appropriate clothing for golf, including polo-shirts and golf shoes. You will find a list of things to bring to camp here.
Unrestricted internet access will be available to the juniors, should they wish to use their own tablet or smartphone to stay in touch with family. Alternatively, you are always welcome to phone us and we will pass you on your child when possible. Phone calls will usually only be accepted at the end of the day so as not to interfere with camp activities.
Safety During Golf Lessons
At Mypro the safety and welfare of our juniors is our number one priority. Throughout the camps, juniors are supervised 24/7 by our trained staff who provide pastoral care and support. The setting of our camps, St Andrews, is renown as a safe University town offering a fun and exciting environment for juniors to have one of the best experiences of their lives.
Our staff is made up of multi-lingual PGA professionals and teachers. We are a qualified, experienced, PVG checked and First Aid trained team and the safety of the juniors is always our priority. Juniors are supervised 24/7.
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.
The Juniors Attending Our Golf Camp
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!
Yes! Even though girls are outnumbered by boys most of the time, there are always a good number of them attending the camp, with an average ratio of 1/4. Girls are more than welcome to attend our camp!
Campers will stay in St Andrews, in student accommodation belonging to the University of St Andrews. This is a comfortable and safe residence for the juniors for the duration of their stay and our team will be available 24/7. Breakfasts and dinners are provided here.
Our accommodation provides a mixture of single and double rooms, meaning that we cannot always guarantee juniors will be able to share rooms. When requested, we will always do our best to place siblings or friends in bedrooms with each other or at least, next to each other.
However, it is our policy for boys and girls to stay in different areas of the residence, therefore it is not possible for them to stay next to each other.
