A day at Kingarrock should please any keen golfer of course, but here you get much more than a game of golf, you get an authentic slice of Edwardian life.

Your day starts with a warm welcome in Forrester’s Cottage from the Kingarrock Hickory Golf Team. You’ll be introduced to the quirks and charms of the 1920s kit and hear some fascinating history, about both the history of the game and the Sharp family. With that done, it’s time to collect your clubs and head out to the first tee.

A 9 hole round takes roughly 90 – 120 minutes to complete. For maximum privacy on the course - and to fully experience the game exactly as the Sharps did when they had the course to themselves, we do our utmost to ensure each golfing party gets a half hour gap on the first tee.

After you’ve made your final putt, you’ll return to the Forrester’s Cottage where we reward you for your efforts with another fine Fife tradition: a cool, refreshing glass of ginger beer and a plate of homemade shortbread.

There is no dress code, but you’re welcome to don your plus fours and look sharp on the course!

Please note that dogs are not permitted on the golf course, although they are welcome on the rest of the site.
