New Links is a St Andrews based charity that reaches out to under served children through international travel, education and the game of golf. New Links is now in its second decade of activity. Between 2006 and 2009 we hosted youth visits involving about 100 children from South Africa, Kenya, the USA and Scotland. From 2007-2011 we paid for a four-year full-ride scholarship at the University of St Andrews, and in 2012 we supported two young women in their golfing development – one made the US Junior Ryder Cup team and the other won the St Regulus club championship over the Old Course. In July 2016 we relaunched our youth visit programme in partnership with Youth on Course.

  • What New Links does in getting kids out of their home environment and making them comfortable and confident in meeting other kids is so amazing...

    George Lopez
  • New Links St Andrews provides positive life-changing experiences at the place where it all began. Golf helps kids make new friends, learn useful life skills, gives them confidence and helps them lead better lives. That's big. That's the ultimate.

    Ernie Els
