GHSC News Item: August 30, 2022 – Fall Hickory Classic & Collector’s Trade Show (2022)
Reported by: Allan Lew, GHSC Hickory Ambassador
Golf Historical Society of Canada is pleased to announce its premier hickory golf event for 2022—the Fall Hickory Classic, Hickory Golf Tournament and Friendship Games. GHSC welcomes its members and all Canadian and American registered guests to participate in this combined hickory golf/collecting event.
This two-day event will take place on Saturday, October 1 and Sunday, October 2 at Whirlpool Golf Course and Sawmill Golf Course, respectively. The format of the golf includes both Individual Play (total score over 2 days) and Team Play (combined totals using Stableford scoring). Three play divisions are available—Open Medal, Ladies and Masters (70+ years). This is not really a competitive tournament per se; there is just enough competition and fun for a wide range of participants. Pre-1935 clubs with hickory or other wood shafts, both originals and approved replicas, may be used. We will have extra hickory clubs available as loaners or rentals, upon request.
A dinner is scheduled for Saturday evening; dinner attendees will pay the selected restaurant directly for their meals. Indoor trading tables are also available for hire on Sunday morning at Sawmill for the trade and sale of historical golf clubs and other collectibles.
A $20 registration fee and/or a $10 charge per trading table are payable to GHSC by each registering player. Registered players will pay golf fees directly to each pro-shop as follows: Whirlpool – $80 + tax, incl. cart ($62 + tax, walking), Sawmill – $53 incl. tax, with cart ($35 incl. tax, walking).
A couple of hotels are available at discounted rates for GHSC members and registered guests.
