Hulta Hickory Golf Society- prova på

Hickory Golf på Hulta 2012-

Our society was formed in 2013 by David Kirkham and Tomas Astlund both of whom have turned to hickory golf in the pursuit of the true spirit of this great game. Playing this wonderfull game can be enjoyed even more by playing with golf clubs made over 80 years ago. The sound of the shafts swinging through the air and the feel of the old heads striking the ball really must be tried by all golf lovers to understand and get back to what golf was all about.

In a time when a round of golf can take over five hours to play it becomes a joy to carry a little bag with 7-8 clubs and enjoy faster rounds with much enjoyment. At the end of a round over a nice pint it is the good shots you talk about and not the bad ones you have hit. It is a joy to relive the tradition and spirit of the game sharing the same clubs that Vardon and Jones used in there prime.

There is a very active Hickory Golf Links Tour in Sweden for those of you who would like to play these old clubs in competition. Buying of clubs is very easy through the internet or through many of the Swedish contacts Tomas and I have.

We even have our very own Tour Competition at Hulta which is played each year at the end of April. In 2015 almost 50 players from around Sweden traveled and played our championship! Hickory ladies play from the red tees and the men play our very own hickory course which is 5210m in length. The course is a mix of all our four tees at Hulta. 

Course record holder- Jörgen Isberg 73 shots 2016.

International Hickory Golf-

Hickory golf is spreading slowly over the world and last year the tenth holding of The World Hickory Open was held over the world famous Carnoustie Golf Links in Scotland. Our own Golfchef David Kirkham finished in 10th place out of around 130 players. Also in 2015 David was also Swedens first ever hickory player to be invited to compete in Philadelphia USA for The World Hickory Match-play Championship and was in fact leading after two rounds before falling back a little. Yes, so indeed hickory is spreading all over the world.

Our society hope to find many new hickory players who will join us and enjoy the experience. Any questions you may have then just drop me an e-mail at info@hultagk.se or call me on 033-204340, 0705-204366.
