Performance Suite

Saints Golf benefits from an extensive Strength & Conditioning programme with players having personalised development plans and three to four supervised sessions each week by accredited trainers. By working together with 3D measurements and detailed physical screening procedures we maximise the benefits of S&C in preparing the golfer as an athlete.

The University’s dedicated Strength and Conditioning Suite opened in December 2016 and provides a private space for performance teams and athletes to train undisturbed away from regular gym users. Featuring five lifting stations, a three-lane plyometric track and designated ‘rehab zone’, the new Performance Suite also offers video analysis technology.

  • “I decided to start supporting the University of St Andrews golf programs about five years ago. I thought I could help make a difference for these programs by financially helping you start a golf donor program. I'm very proud that you have used my funds to create a Saints Golf Website to help you get the word out.”
    Van deWar – 600 Club Founding Member
