Hickory Golf Experience

Hickory Golfers

We are absolutely delighted to announce that on 19th May 2014 at the prestigious Ultratravel awards in London, we were awarded the accolade of "Best Golf Resort in the World 2014" for the third year running.


We have teamed up with Kingarrock Hickory Golf to offer a rare golfing experience, the chance to play golf using hickory clubs – the way the game was played 100 years ago.

All players will be provided with original hickory clubs; a Spoon, Driving Iron, Mid Mashie, Mashie Niblick, Niblick and Putter in an old style golf bag. With the golf bag, clubs and balls weighing on average only 5 lbs, there is no need for trolleys or buggies!

Challenge colleagues or friends to a fun game with two packages to choose from: 


What’s included in this offer:

The PGA National Academy Course Hickory Experience

  • 6 original hickory clubs, golf balls, 'reddy' tees and an old golf bag

  • A round on the 1920s 9-hole family course in front of the Mansionhouse
  • A nip of whisky or port to help get into the spirit of the 'roaring twenties' prior to teeing off.
  • 'Da Anderson' ginger beer and shortbread on completion of the round.
  • The guarantee of an hour gap on the 1st tee between parties to enable all players to experience the feeling of personal privacy, just as it was when the Sharp family entertained their friends all those years ago.
  • Two new wrapped golf balls representing the distance and feel of the early 1900's.
  • A miniature of Kingarrock malt whisky in a quality gift bag.
  • The option of a further nine holes at no cost.
