THE MAGIC OF ST ANDREWS

St Andrews, the Home of Golf

St Andrews Legacy is a Scottish Charity using the magic of St Andrews to help those facing challenges in their lives.

 

Working with international veterans organizations, St Andrews Legacy hosts men and women from all over the world, creating a relaxing environment for positive interactions and long-term benefits.

 

One St Andrews Legacy participant had this to say about the effect the programme has had on him and his loved ones: "The impact the St Andrews Legacy trip had on my life has been profound. Quite honestly it saved my life and changed the direction I was headed...my life has completely turned around from where I would have become just another statistic, leaving a widow and a child without a father…I can never say thank you enough for saving my life and giving me a reason to keep moving forward".

 

Another participant explains how golf helps him recover from traumatic injuries: "Golf has really given me hope…I needed something else to build and boost my spirit, so that I'd continue to fight…and playing golf again has brought that old me back, which I thought I'd lost".

 

Here is a take on the St Andrews Legacy experience: "It's my sport and this has made me fall more in love with the game…It makes you remember how to enjoy life. I've seen the great things that golf can do for people. There is life after being injured, it's just about making the most of it instead of dwelling on it. Golf helps people to realize that".
