Lyle to design new Edinburgh course

2014 09 452283160

Sandy Lyle is set to design a championship golf course on the outskirts of Edinburgh and has said the development has ‘potential to rival any in Scotland’.


Backed by a consortium of British businessman, the development of the 500-acre Kersewell Estate on the outskirts of Edinburgh has received planners’ approval for a 240 bedroom, five-star hotel with leisure and spa facilities, including an 18-hole championship golf course designed by Lyle.

Planners have also given the green light for a phased development of 250 chalet style villas on the site, which will feature lakes and forestry, an equestrian centre, and other popular outdoor leisure facilities.

Scotland 'crying out' for golf resort


With Edinburgh airport less than 30 minutes drive from the site, Alexandra Hayward of Debutesq Group who are handling international sales, believes a new resort hotel is exactly what Scotland needs.

She said: “Scotland is crying out for a resort hotel with conference and leisure facilities on a gran scale and this development will help the country compete better internationally.”

With no date set for work to begin, the owners haven’t ruled out selling the development, but are at this stage interested in engaging with international hotel operators and resort developers.
