I have visited many golf short game and learning centres in all parts of Britain, Canada and the United States. The facility at Kings Acre ranks right up among the top, and is world-class. I was highly impressed by all the hitting bays, the fairways and of course, being a little biased the short game area. I loved the assortment of greens, bunkers and all types of areas and lies to hit any short trouble shot that you could experience on an actual course. I can’t express the importance of a wonderful learning facility in the overall development of young players.
