About Mypro Golf

 

We pride ourself on being a fun, friendly company that makes you and your summer our priority. We get more Mypro Campers year on year, with most students returning several years in a row, which means people trust us and like how we do things.

Mypro™ was originally started by two people that have been involved in golf their whole life and even attended similar camps as juniors. This has impacted the Mypro™ philosophy and our target is always to deliver an experience that will be remembered for a lifetime!

Having lived in St Andrews and experienced the magic of the town, we couldn’t think of a more perfect place to host the Mypro Golf Camps.

Our summer camps provide a unique summer experience, offering full immersion in English language while having the opportunity of learning and playing at the Home of Golf.

To inspire and ignite a passion for learning in every young golfer by delivering an experience that will be remembered for a lifetime
