The Loretto Golf Academy, established in 2002 on our campus in East Lothian, is at the forefront of schools' golf, offering pupils an exceptional opportunity to develop their sporting talent in tandem with a first-class, all-round education.
The Loretto Golf Academy is widely recognised as the top independent boarding and day golf school in Europe attracting young golfers from around the world.
It boasts innovative practice facilities and programmes for both beginners and advanced golfers. Working closely with Scottish Golf and in partnership with Championship courses at Craigielaw and Archerfield, the Loretto Golf Academy ensures that it is at the cutting edge of schools' golf.
Scotland is the birthplace of modern golf and Loretto School, perhaps because of its superb location next to the world's oldest playing course, has a strong tradition of top level golf, dating back to its founding in 1827. The surrounding area of East Lothian offers a choice of magnificent links courses.
Over the years former pupils of Loretto have captained many of the best known clubs throughout Scotland and the UK. No fewer than seven Lorettonians have captained The Royal and Ancient Golf Club, St Andrews, whilst eleven have been captain of the Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers, Muirfield and at least ten have been captains at Prestwick.
