Summer Golf Program

This four-week golf experience offers a high-performance program that includes courses on the History and Development of Golf, Golf Coaching and Intermediate Performance Skills and work experience at St. Andrews/Gleneagles for a week. These three courses provide practical as well as theory and will strengthen the resumes of students interested in sports and recreation careers.

Students will learn about the history and development of golf and enhance their coaching and performance skills. The week of work experience at St. Andrews/Gleneagles will highlight the four-week program.

Visits and tee times are scheduled at Dukes Golf Course at St. Andrews, Gleneagles, Kingarrock Hickory Golf Course and others. Students are advised to contact their academic counselor to review the descriptions of the three courses for appropriate transfer academic credit.

The program will be held just north of Edinburgh at Scotland’s Rural College (SRUC) Elmwood campus in the old market town of Cupar, alongside rich rural scenery, farmland and country estates. The SRUC Elmwood Campus is recognized as a national and international center for golf-related specialisms.

In addition to regular program coursework, students will have an option for weekend excursions such as sightseeing in Edinburgh or tee time at designated golf courses. (additional fees may apply)

Register now at Adelante Abroad to secure your placement. Spots are limited.

*Due to limited availability, in all Scotland programs, there is a $500 holding deposit required. You will receive an invoice following your phone interview and this will be due upon receipt in order to confirm your place. The holding deposit is non-refundable.*
