Set in 70 acres of rolling countryside, this magnificent example of a course designed by Graeme J Webster, one of Scotland’s leading golf course architects, presents all levels of golfer with a course that they will enjoy playing.
The 2857 yard layout requires all types of shot to be played and is a real ‘risk and reward’ course with stunning views across West Lothian.
The course should allow all year round play with very few days lost to weather due to the fast draining conditions created during construction. We fully expect to be open when many other courses may be closed due to very wet conditions.
The aim is to have golf that is accessible to all from the absolute beginner through to European Tour standard players, some of whom are already regular users of our existing facilities.
I visited Kingsfield to take a golf lesson and then went out on the course afterwards. The course is in fantastic condition and the greens are fantastic, but I just did not understand the course design. Par 4's which you can drive and then Par 3's where you have almost no hope of getting the ball on the green, especially with the wind.
But as said, once you get that ball onto the green, excellent and a massive thumbs up to the green keeper. Even the level of rain recently has not affected the greens.
The approach area for practice is fantastic with 2 multiple layered greens, 3 flags and you can practice approach shots from anything up to 90 to 100 yards. Very rare to find so will be returning for sure.
Just practice what you have learnt on the practice facilities :)

For a 9 hole golf course, the layout is tough, especially the Par 3 holes which can be as long as 200 yards. When I played it, the wind was in the face leaving almost impossible shots onto the Par 3's.
Having said that, the course is very well maintained and with excellent drainage, the course is always fairly dry, even if other courses in the region are wet with lying water. There are some excellent risk and reward holes, especially the 5th Hole which can be driven, but risks everywhere with water down the middle.
The green's are fantastic, some of the best in the region and really well maintained - a real challenge.
The practice facilities, driving range, putting green and short game area are easily the best in the region so well worth a visit.
Good iron play is essential from the long irons to the approach shots which will test.
