Formby Ladies Golf Club

Overview

In 1896, the Ladies section of Formby Golf Club struck off on their own and laid out their own course... inside the course they just left!

The club is one of the few independent women's golf club in the world!

Being short it relies on strategy rather than distance. This fact also makes it a perfect Hickory destination.
