Kings Acre Golf Course and Academy, located in the Midlothian countryside just six miles from Edinburgh, is a unique 18-hole golf course and academy. The golf course, which opened in 1997, was the vision of Scottish Golf Course Designer Graeme Webster.

The parkland golf course made clever use of the land's natural contours. Strategically placed water hazards and more than 50 bunkers lead the way to championship quality greens. Kings Acre Golf Course and Academy's natural sandy-based soil guarantees excellent playability all year round.

Everyone should play this course...and not just once! Hardly a soul to be seen so we were able to play at a good pace and rythm...a moderate breeze was blowing making some holes more challenging than others, but each hole had it's characteristics making it the most enjoyable of golf courses. Wonderful fairways, undulating and twisting, leading to multi tiered greens with thoughtfully positioned pins. A Fab days golf not spoiled by a few wayward shots as this course was such a pleasure to play.
