CHGATrying to gauge your interest in continuing this competition with our friends up in the Commonwealth?  We are looking at the last week of March for potentially holding this 2 day Ryder Cup like competition.  Probably would have to play this monday/tuesday or tuesday/wednesday, at Midpines/Pine Needles.  I'm not sure of the rate yet as March is a busy time and it may be a bit pricey.If you are interested in playing and want to be on the team please respond in kind to this post.  The team…See More

High Point - Emerywood Course Hickory Event at Emerywood Club

March 22, 2019 from 10am to 2pm
We will make our first visit to High Point Country Club's Emerywood Club, March 22.  This rediscovered 1923 Donald Ross layout has been lovingly restored and will be perfect for us and our hickories.  The nine hold layout It has nice elevation changes, rolling fairways, and smaller undulating greens. We willl go around 2x.  Seniors, juniors and those new to the game enjoy Emerywood's shorter length. Better players appreciate the opportunity to keep their games sharp on this challenging course. …See More

"If you didn’t want to use spray paint you could use flags, like the ones used to mark sprinkler heads.  Cheap, lightweight, easily transportable, and provide a better visual for locating when searching for the tee box."

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.

Equipment Help

Hello, I just joined the group last night and am looking forward to playing. I love the tradition and history of the game. Does anyone know of a good source of hickory clubs other than the bay? Swap meets etc.. possibly in NC?

Thanks

Evan Mickle

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…

Roaring Gap a Hit Again

Jay Harris once again hosted a wonderful Hickory event at Roaring Gap CC. The course is a treat to pay using hickories and the greens are terrific. Weather was perfect for the 24 players and this is something you should not miss next September. Thanks to Jay for all his efforts.
