A delightful game of golf in vintage 1920s outfits played with traditional wooden golf clubs – that’s the essence of Swiss Hickory Golf. It is this sense of pure joy that also unites VILLIGER and Swiss Hickory Golf and has inspired the two companies to work together.

Swiss Hickory Golf, an enjoyable journey back in time on the green fairway

Have you heard of Swiss Hickory Golf? Perhaps you have even played this unique game of golf before? Swiss Hickory Golf is also known as the nostalgic counter-movement to everyday golf. The game focuses on enjoying and experiencing the golf course together – no pressure, competition, or rush.

It attracts curious golfers, passionate players, and connoisseurs, but also competitive and professional golfers who enjoy the challenge of playing with a traditional wooden club. “Playing with Swiss Hickory clubs will make you a better golfer,” professionals agree. After all, there is no room for error when playing with the old clubs: You have to hit the ball just right to avoid losing yardage and sending it off course. Moreover, the elasticity of the wood means you have to swing more gently.

Watching the elegant ladies and gentlemen dressed in 20th-century fashion, playing with club and ball, makes you feel like you’ve traveled back in time. Life starts to move at a slower pace.
