Program Overview

Program Description:
The Summer Golf School for Teens is an exclusive summer sports camp based in Ayrshire, Scotland. We specialise in providing a personalised, safe and friendly summer school experience for students aged 13 to 17. The purpose of our international summer school is to see each of our students grow in their academic performance, golfing ability and leadership skills during their stay. Our highly qualified and experienced teachers work in small groups to enhance each of our students skills in their chosen subjects of Golf & English Language along with Golf & Global Entrepreneurship. Our carefully selected range of summer school academic courses and summer camp social activities aim to support students individually within small group settings. Students also benefit from various team building activities and have the opportunity to make friends from all over the world as part of a diverse, international student body. At the Summer Golf School for Teens we offer "courses in character."

The summer school golf camp is run by our highly qualified PGA coaches and focusses on technical development, competition preparation and the different styles of golf (e.g parklands and links). PGA golf tuition will include specifics such as video analysis, swing improvement, short game, distance control and golf specific fitness. The course will culminate in a Ryder Cup style of tournament and awards will be given to students who have progressed, been outstanding and contributed to the overall morale of their team. Our summer English Language school has been developed to significantly improve students language ability over the summer months. Our ESL class is designed for students at the beginner and intermediate levels. Students will work in small groups and will cover all aspects of reading, writing and verbal skills. Our ESL teacher will work with students to help them improve individually and will also assist them in specific ESL study skills such as test taking. Our Global Entrepreneurship course is structured in the style of a “Dragon’s Den” scenario where students will develop a business idea and learn about advertising, business plans, competitive advantages, customer demographics, entrepreneurial spirit, ethical issues, financing, networking, marketing, product development, future career goals and social responsibility. This summer school course is well suited to any young budding entrepreneur, however, it is also a great fit for students interested in global issues, problem solving and leadership. At the Summer Golf School for Teens, we know that many of our students will go on to be be tomorrow’s leaders. This course helps them develop the study skills and confidence required to help enable them to achieve their dreams and future career goals.

If golf is your passion, then the opportunity to play in the “home of golf” is something you cannot afford to miss out on. Our summer golf camp is designed to expose students to a range of Scotland’s most interesting and famous courses whilst also providing them with specialist tuition to improve their individual game. Teen leadership is something which permeates our entire programme. It doesn’t matter if you are shy or outgoing, incredibly nervous or overly confident, there is always room for improvement and a place for us all. The skill is in finding exactly where you fit in. The international framework of our summer school programme gives students the opportunity to learn about new cultures and make new friends from all over the world. Throughout their stay students will participate in a range of challenging activities based on the beautiful castle grounds which will develop their mental stamina and ability to work as part of a team, always with an emphasis on good fun.
Setting Description:
Our summer sports camp is set in a private castle estate which has been home to the same family since 1245. The castle has links with some of Scotland’s most famous names including William Wallace, Mary Queen of Scots and the famous poet Robert Burns. It has been chosen because of its safe location and although abundant in historical charm, it has excellent grounds for outdoor games including mountain biking, fishing and orienteering.

Our Director is also available 24 hours a day throughout the duration of the programme. 3 nutritious meals will be provided daily and will include a BBQ night, Burns Supper and bonfire night with marshmallows and hot chocolate.
