Welcome to the Golf Historical Society of Canada – We play with them... We collect them... We learn about them.

Hickory Hackers Scramble & GHSC AGM
Uplands Golf Club, Thornhill, Ontario, May 26, 2017

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

28 participated at the historic Uplands Golf Club. This Stanley Thompson designed track has been a Toronto favourite for many years. Despite the weather being somewhat uncooperative, the second GHSC event of the season took place Friday May 26th. This nine hole course turned out to be on the light side...with only 8 holes playable. Unfortunately those participating had to be content with viewing rather than playing the signature 8th hole - renown for its beauty and difficulty!!

We got through the round without precipitation which was highly unpredictable in view of Mother Nature being relentless to date.

The results were as follows:

PlayersScore
Stewart/ Southall/Chandler/Archer27
Parker/Holland/Hart28
Petry/Matlock/Blocksidge/Achtymichuk29
Julie/Vossen/VanBeurden/Wiens29
Marshall/McArthur/Harper/Lapidus30
Clarke/Mihm/Moreau/Moreau30
Burgess/Soetens/Kostandoff/Whelan33

Most dedicated participant was Paul Dietz who made the long journey from Sarnia to Toronto without playing golf!!

The annual meeting took place with Ron Archer taking minutes. Basically an update was provided of activities this past year along with upcoming plans for the balance of the season. We enjoyed a great luncheon and a heated swap session of treasured golf artifacts.

Thanks to Jeff Rogers for arranging this event
