1980 - The father of the family, Walter Hecker, decides what was then remote Gut Hühnerhof to take over and to restore step by step according to his ideas.
With the support of his friends and relatives, his two sons Tobias and Michael and his loving wife Irmgard, he managed to breathe new life into the forgotten patch of earth. In addition to the numerous restoration work, the family also tilled the agricultural land.
While the roofing and construction work was still in full swing, the family decided to devote themselves to their dream of the first public golf course in Hesse. This is how the golf park became in 2000 Gut Hühnerhof founded with a 9-hole course.
The hotel opened Gut Hühnerhof with a café, which is now successfully managed by Myriam Hecker. With the new construction of the 18-hole golf course with an imposing clubhouse as the centerpiece, the family also opened their own restaurant: "Heckers".
While Michael Hecker is now the club manager for the golf park and runs the family restaurant together with his wife Lisa, Tobias Hecker is responsible for the management of the agricultural land and all maintenance and construction work related to the Gut Hühnerhof responsible. The youngest of the three Hecker children, Susanne, takes on the planning of further building projects as the architect, as well as the marketing of the family business.
A family business that is second to none!
