Huge difference from modern golf and let's you see how much the technology of clubs and balls makes such a difference. Good fun and would like to go back when the sun shines! 9th hole plays well. Would be better if I knew the different clubs and how far the should hit the ball!

We were on a golfing tour round Fife and thought it would be fun to 'go back in time' and play with hickory clubs. We were not disappointed - a very friendly welcome, explanation of the differing and well maintained clubs/balls etc. We thought the course was in good condition and enjoyed the post match chat. Made to feel really... More

The Kingarrock Golf Course is managed by the Scottish Trust and is associated with the lovely Hill of Tarvit house located a few miles south of Cupar. The course itself is a basic nine hole layout with pasture-like fairways and bumpy greens. But the reason to play is the opportunity to use 100 year old hickory shafted clubs and "1924"... More

Beautiful scenery, just 9 holes, a unique experience. My friends and I created great memories today. Recommended for families too. Not a lot of water or bunkers. Keep your shot straight and you won't be in too much trouble.

This is a game of golf played with Hickory clubs which are supplied as part of the fee. It makes for a good light hearted game of golf over 9 holes in conditions experienced at the birth of golf. The golf pro, Andrew, is very helpful, informative and enthusiastic. Well worth a morning or afternoon visit, Other members of the... More

This course is unique - hickory shafted clubs and the course maintained as it would have been in days gone by. There is even shortbread and ginger beer at the end of the round.

Fantastic! A must for all golfing enthusiasts. A great birthday surprise. You are treated as a guest and given the full history tour and service. You get given five clubs and golf balls made to perform as per the 1800's. The golf course was in great nick for something that is being kept along the lines of an 1800's course.... More
