Paying For Old Tyme Golf
By Kickntrue on 8/5/08
A Canadian golf course offers an old tyme golf experience including caddies in era dress, hickory shaft clubs and 1930 era's balls. I actually love this idea, but it's certainly for the well-to-do. It costs $369 a person or $699 for a twosome.

cool idea, crazy cost. i like the idea of a tournament were you can only play with equipment made prior to 1950.

That is so awesome. And I think depending on the course and it's amenities, the cost is totally reasonable for such a unique experience.

There is a course that does this near the Homestead in VA. I's drastically cheaper.

The courses listed here aren't it and I can't remember the name of it but one of the courses here apparently has the oldest continually in use tee in the US, that's kinda cool.

Guess those caddies aren't being paid old-timey wages.

Wow, I can get the same experience for a senior's grees fee of $7.50 per day at one of the public courses in Louisville, KY, where most early morning players are in the age group of 70-85. And they dress like it, and still have some of the same equipment. Sorry, no caddies available. They've all been published on the "Obit Page". Move to Louisville!!!
