“A must try in Fife”
Reviewed 8 September 2011

We have holidayed in Fife for the last 11 years and for the last 2 have taken one of the National Trust cottages in the grounds of Tarvit Mansion House near Cupar. The Kingarrock Hickory Golf course is within the grounds and was originally a private course for the owners of the Mansion House. I believe it was then ploughed and used as farmland before being restored to it's former glory in the last few years. It is worth a trip to Tarvit anyway but experiencing Hickory golf on this course makes it a must! You use original hickory golf clubs, original bags and a choice of old fashioned golf balls. A nip of whiskey and/or old fashioned ginger beer and shortbread are included. The couple who run it are so kind and enthusiastic and add to the general enjoyment with their knowledge and advice. The views around the course are also fabulous. Highly recommended.

“Great Experience from beginning to end”
Reviewed 13 July 2011

My Family and I (son age 7) played here - it was one of the best days we spent in Scotland. The grounds are beautiful and playing with the wooden shafts was a blast. Prior to the round we were treated a discussion about the history of the course and golf in general. Afterwards e were offered shortbread and ginger beer. It is really something that all golfers and none golfers shouls do.
