Carolina Trace Hickory Day at Carolina Trace Country Club

April 13, 2018 all day
We will return to Carolina Trace, Lakes Course after a long sojourn.  The Lakes was redone with Bermuda a couple of years ago, and our host Barry Markowitz has arranged for a great day of golf and lunch for under $50.  The course will also offer attendees a nice comp for return play.  We will shotgun at 9:30, and given the month of April, this should be a great event. 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.
