Hickory Hackers Scramble, Trade Show & Auction
Dundee Golf Club, September 26, 2014

Please scroll to the bottom of the page to see some pictures from the event.

On September 26, a beautiful autumn day, twenty-seven members of the GHSC played a scramble at Dundee GC. The course, designed by Tony Matlock, played at 5,400 yards. The greens had many subtle slopes, making putting difficult.

A trade show followed the golf. Clubs from the estates of Paul Sorley and Al Hughes were offered for sale. Eager bidders took part in the auction that preceded dinner.

Winners of the long drive contest were Ian Clarke (hole #7) and Robert McWade (hole # 11).

Closest to the pin winners were Doug Marshall (hole #9) and Pat Mihm (hole # 10).

Winner of the 50 / 50 draw was Ian Clarke.

The golf scores were as follows…

62 – Vern P, Al Clark, Gerald Achtymichuk, Ken Leedham

66 – David Burgess, Ken Hopkins, Doug Marshall

67 – Robert McWade, Michael Hart, James Parker, Paul Dietz (scorecard playoff)

67 – Ian Clarke, David Blocksidge, Barry Kryba, Peter Van Beurden

68 – Wayne Linton, Tony Matlock, Pat Mihm

69 – Jim Pearson, George Julie, Phil Kostandoff, Steve Kirkpatrick

70 – Bill Stewart, Ron Archer, Norm Brunton, Frank Whelan

This event was the final GHSC tournament of the 2014 season.

I would like to thank all the participants in the Hickory Hackers' scrambles, The Ontario Hickory Tour events, and the Anniversary events played this year. You have made 2014 the best hickory golf season to date.
