Kingarrock Hickory Golf

Step back in time and try your hand on the only hickory golf club in the UK.

Kingarrock Hickory Golf

Fife, Scotland

Overview

Kingarrock Hickory Golf is located at National Trust for Scotland property, Hill of Tarvit Mansion. The mansion house and course are found in Cupar, Fife, between Dundee and Glenrothes and on your way to golf mecca, St Andrews.

Don't worry if you don't have your own clubs... Kingarrock Hickory Golf hires hickory golf clubs in pencil bags and softer rubber-wound golf balls for an authentic golden age golf experience.

The original course was lost during WW2. A map from 1924 provided the inspiration for the genuine restoration. The bunkers, notably on holes 5 and 7 are authentic in position and nature. A shared green is used for holes 4 and 8.

There is no modern irrigation nor modern chemicals used... A flock of Hebridean Sheep helps to manage the rough.
