Penrose Park CC in Reidsville, NC will welcome us for the first time to its 1929 Donald Ross 9 hole course.  Reidsville went all out in the building of its course and clubhouse, as the following clearly shows from their archives:Pennrose Park and its beautiful and carefully planned landscape makes a delightful setting for the golf club and is expertly designed nine hole golf links. Stretched over the rolling hills and deep into the deep shaded valleys, the golf course winds in and out of as…See More

We will visit this renovated and rebuilt course once again.  The club installed Champion Bermuda greens and tif turf fairways and re-opened for business abut 18 months ago.  The Ellis Maples design previously hosted numerous local and regional events including ACC Championships.  Plays nicely with hickories at 5,267 yards from the Silver Tees. Team and individual competitions are planned.  Green fees with cart will be $32.00.  Foods and drink available.  A 9:40 shotgun start is anticipated.See More

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

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.
