Suzy Georgiade

Suzy, Bob Georgiade's wife, suffered a stroke a couple of weeks ago, I've been told. I reached out to Bob and he said "she came home from intensive rehab on Wednesday and is improving daily, but slowly, of course." Thought I'd share this sad news which explains Bob's absence from Mid Pines this year. Lee Burton and Steve Herron will be manning Bob's table tonight at the Trade Show in the Mid Pines Dining Room from 6:00 to 8:00.Far and Sure,Lang WillieSee More

"Gary, In 1920's the rules book was a quarter of the size it is now.  Players utilized perhaps 7 or 8 clubs, often with a bare bones bag Walking. Greens were not mowed with stimp meters in mind.  Put plainly it was a much simpler…"

Broken shaft

Might have hit 20 balls (35 and 50 compression) with my mashie and the shaft is cracking. What do I do? Buy a new shaft from Louisville golf or rob peter to pay paul? I have another mashie by another club maker. I'd have to plug the pin hole and drill a new one if that is the case. Comments?...

Hello all and thank you for accepting me into this organization. I have just recently discovered and acquired some hickory golf clubs and have found a new spark for the game of golf with these. Looking for any information and direction as I am in the midst of putting together my first set. Any information and help would be greatly appreciated. I look forward to hopefully be involved in future events and getting to know some of you.

Thanks

I am overwhelmed by the response to our tragic loss. The outpouring of wishes, food, labor, contributions,etc is beyond comprehension. Thank you all.

An anvil too soon silenced. My son Evan died today. The son any parent would wish for, the husband and father too good to be true, the dedicated farrier all horses dream of, went out to work around his new farm and for no apparent reason just died.

To lose a parent is to lose touch with…
