Ontario Hickory Open 2019
Niagara-on-the-Lake GC, Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Sept. 6-7, 2019

Please scroll to the bottom of the page to see (many) pictures from the event.

Twenty-five competitors, including three from the USA, teed off at 1pm on Friday September 6th, 2019 in the inaugural Ontario Hickory Open.

We experienced some strong winds and a bit of rain late in the day Friday but it only gave the tournament more of an Open feel... British Open, that is!!!!

Saturday started with bright sunshine and warm temperatures. At the end of 27 holes of individual stroke play our winners were:

Low Gross
1st place: Bruce Delguidice.
2nd place: Bill Wardell
3rd place: Jim Wilhelm.

Low Net
1st place Noi Moreau
2nd place: George Supol
3rd place: our newest member, Jim Savill
(George and Jim had the same net score, so the final order was decided by retrogression.)

Closest to the pin winner: George Supol.

Congratulations to all. And big thank-you's to Ken Leedham for his talents and advice regarding rules and scoring, to Ron Dunn for his invaluable assistance in setting up gift bags for all participants and sorting out tee times for both days, to Frank Collis for volunteering his photographic talents and finally, to our President David Burgess for his sage advice on all matters pertaining to planning and managing this event.
