Performance golf programme

There is nowhere more special than St Andrews that offers students a world-leading academic education and a professionally run high performance golf programme.

Led by Director of Golf Ian Muir, we aim to deliver the very best support and a comprehensive programme of training and competition to enable our top student golfers to harness their full potential and achieve sporting and academic excellence whilst studying at St Andrews.

We deliver our performance programme through Saints Golf Scholarships, with support from The R&A, St Andrews Links Trust and The 600 Club – our community of supporters around the world.

Scholarships are aimed at players who are already competing at a high level and who believe they have the necessary attributes to be part of a performance golf programme whilst studying for their degree in St Andrews.

With unrivalled courses and facilities, history, tradition and a modern, professionally run high performance golf programme, you will find everything you need at the Home of Golf to take your game and your education to the highest level as part of the truly unique student experience.
