Summer 2017 Golf Camp:

Established in 2011, Merchiston’s week long intensive golf training programme allows keen golfers to develop their swing technique and overall understanding of the game. The camp takes place at the world class facility of nearby Kings Acre Golf Course & Academy, which is a par 70, 18 hole course set in beautiful parkland.
Few golf academies can rival the set-up at Kings Acre, with its internationally renowned teaching facilities. The fantastic facilities include 30 covered bays, four fully equipped teaching studios and a short game area with two USGA greens, making Kings Acre the ideal venue for the Merchiston Summer Golf Programme.

Throughout the week, players will:
• Receive dedicated professional coaching throughout the day
