What is the Scottish Golf Performance Academy?

The Scottish Golf Performance Academy is the national programme for Scotland’s talented young golfers. Nurturing boys and girls from the age of 12 and upwards, the Performance Academy provides young players with a comprehensive coaching and support programme tailored to the needs of the individual to maximise their opportunity of succeeding at the highest level.

Using some of the country’s best facilities and PGA-trained coaches, the Scottish Golf Academy supports players each year through three performance tiers of the programme with the objective of developing Scotland’s future generation of golfing winners through specialised, personal support.
