At A Glance

Formby Ladies Golf 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.

Full Course Review

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! It was an amicable split and a nine-hole course along with a modest clubhouse was established. In 1907, negotiations began on an additional nine holes. They were readied and open for play in the summer of 1908. The course plays to just over 5,300 yards - in stark contrast to Formby which was previously known at the Ladies Club as the Long Course.
