Great Experience

Had an amazing time.. Would recommend to anyone who loves golf and the world around it! Whether you''re a good golfer or not,, you''ll find a place here with new people.. It's also a great program for friends to attend together as well.. The program leads are nice and accommodating.. I wish the program included more guaranteed or pre-paid rounds at bigger golf courses,, but we were still able to gain access and pay separately from the program, or out of pocket.. Overall, had an awesome time and would recommend to any golfer wishing to see Scotland!

Pros
  • New culture
  • Seeing a new place
  • Fun with new friends
Cons
  • Accommodation needs updating
  • Lack of weekend resources (rides, plans)
  • Not much diversity in food choices

Once in a lifetime experience

Had a wonderful experience and the Home of Golf. I have been a golfer most of my life and I am very educated about the game. However, during my trip I learned more about golf then I could have ever imagined. Our first study section was the history of golf and that was so fun being able to go to St. Andrews an learn about the start of it all. I was also very fun coaching younger kids about the game, as passing the game down to others is something very special and was a fulfilling experience. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who enjoys golf as they are going to get so much out of this experience.

Pros
  • All the golf courses we got to play
  • Sightseeing to many different places
  • Learning about the history and coaching of golf
Cons
  • Wish it was a longer trip with potentially more credits
  • Accommodation could have been slightly better.

What an amazing trip!

I believe that this trip will be one of the fastest growing in the country in the following years to come. I learned countless things about the game I love as well as scottish culture. I got to play some of the oldest and most famous courses in scotland. I was able to improve my game from the coaching side. I have relit my passion and love for the game. I have made friends for life and wouldn't change this experience for the world. It truly was unique to this group and I am so glad that I was able to be a part of the first year in this programs history.

Amazing Experience for All Golfers!

This has truly been a once in a lifetime experience, completely worth every penny!! The staff is top notch they are more like friends than teachers/chaperones. From the top notch coaching to the world renown course this is definitely every golfers dream. The courses are also very engaging and rely heavily on real world experience being able to go to hickory golf courses, visit the golf museum and coaching a group of children in golf. I could not recommend this program enough for anyone interested.

Pros
  • Great staff
  • Experiencing rich history
  • Great resume builder

The best Scotland has to offer!

It would be impossible to say enough good things about the people I have met here. The instructors were absolutely incredible and some of the kindest people in this world. The support here made me feel safe and ready to jump into any adventure I wanted; whether that be exploring the city of Edinburgh, the town of St. Andrews or simply on the driving range working on my swing. Plenty of ability to remain independent and tailor the trip to any individual who has an interest in golf/ working in the golf industry.

Pros
  • Meals provided Mon-Fri
  • Free golf/range balls
  • Close to St. Andrews

Best month of my life!

This trip blew away any expectations that I had. Everyone was extremely nice, friendly, and welcoming. I truly felt at home while I was away from home. I would recommend this program to anyone who is interested and I would say not to hesitate. 10/10 would recommend to future students interested. I would highly recommend playing Kingsbarns if you have the option. That is one of the most breath taking courses I have ever been to. Getting a caddy is a must as well. Every chance you have to get a caddy you have to. It really enhances the experience here on Scottish links.

Pros
  • So much golf
  • Great people
  • Kingsbarns
Cons
  • None
  • None
