West Virginia course offers 1884 golfing experience.

Recommended Posts

Oakhurst Links is unique, being the first golf course in the United States (founded in 1884). There is no other golf course on the North American continent like it. The Oakhurst experience is unlike any you've had anywhere, no matter where you've played.

Visitors to Oakhurst Links play the course just as golfers did in 1884. Golf at Oakhurst is played with replica 19th-century long-nose, hickory-shafted clubs and "guttie" balls, hit from sand tees. Use of this replica equipment, made in St. Andrews, Scotland , exclusively for Oakhurst Links, is included in your green fee. ..

Wouldn't make it my home course but definitely a cool idea. On a side note: is the dude in the picture playing cross- handed or did I just have too many glasses of Pinot.

I don't think it's the Pinot buddy. Would definitely be a neat experience to try once.

This sounds like it would be fun to do once as a novelty. Any more than that would be overkill in my opinion.
