Lovely course on the outskirts of Edinburgh. Good challenge with a few tricky holes. Well kept, decent greens. Driving range available.

Hilly and former farm land this relatively new course is in excellent condition all year round. Many nearby courses are flat but not kingsacre. Be ready for a stiff test of your golf and equally your fitness. But don't be afraid it is no Ben...More

Surprisingly warm and clear day. Very unusual for Scotland at this time of year. Course very well kept. With no winter greens either. I nipped round using a buggy. Otherwise the 16th can be a climb. Loved my day. Really good course. Clubroom excellent

Golf course was in excellent condition. Tree-lined fairways and consistent greens; the back 9 is definitely my favorite as it takes advantage of unique features of the area such as dykes and the river. Good service from the staff. The center also features a pitch-n-putt...More
