Course rater, author, craftsman of the best wooden golf accessories and avid hickory golfer Tim Alpaugh shares his recent golf trip to Scotland played entirely with hickories.
Trips to Gullane, North Berwick, Muirfield, Cruden Bay, Royal Dornoch, Brora, Kingarock and St Andrews were matched with stays at some of Scotland’s finest golf centric accommodation in the Links House Dornoch, castle visits and distillery tours.

An alternative to the 500 yard par 4s and the 200 yard par 3s is Scotland’s 6000 yard classic golf courses and a set of hickory clubs. As advances in golf equipment become more telling Tim’s recent journey is one that should inspire you to pick up your own hickory club sometime soon, I know I will.
