Making a difference at the 
"Home of Golf"
Background


In 2013 St Andrews legacy brought 7 ill and injured veterans who had served in Iraq and Afghanistan to St Andrews to play golf. The weeks activities culminated in their round on the Old Course.


During the week the participants spent Saturday at Muirfield  attending The Open Championship. One veteran who was the first Canadian casualty of a suicide bomber in Afghanistan made the following statement " this has done more for my rehabilitation than anything I have done in the past  10 years."

This was a huge moment and by accident we had stumbled onto something that proved hugely beneficial to individuals battling non visible injuries. Consequently the support we have received has been beyond belief. 


In 2015 St Andrews Legacy received support from arguably the greatest golfer ever - Jack Nicklaus. Mr Nicklaus has won more major titles than any other golfer reaching 18 majors at the 1986 Masters. One moment above all other stands out, the putt on the 17th green in the final round which secured the record that still stands today.

Working with Tim Wakefield and Soundwaves Art St Andrews Legacy received 100 prints autographed by the great man to celebrate his achievement and help St Andrews Legacy raise funds to bring ill and injured veterans to St Andrews, helping them on their road to recovery.
