Haggis --- We have a vaccine problem

I think it is my duty as your captain to make sure that all events that we run are ultimately safe for all participants.  I've learned this morning that at least one participant has not been vaccinated.  While this is a personal decision for all of us - it is my belief that if you're not vaccinated, you have an obligation to your fellow man that you may come into contact with to let them know that you have not received the vaccine. The knowledge of this has caused at least one participant to…See More

"Agreed Jeff. The roaring twenties had it all, in sports and in social life. Bootlegged liquor, bathtub gin and some of the best golf that had been seen. I still enjoy watching Bobby Jones in "How I Play Golf". Amazing stuff !!"

potentially getting out of Hickory golf

I am considering getting out of hickory golf due to other commitments. Rich Schmidt and many others have done a fantastic job of organizing and lining up golf tournaments for our group.
