John McKee III Classic - Pinecrest Golf Club - Lumberton, NC at Pinecrest Golf Club

May 21, 2021 all day
18 holes of hickory play at this Dick Wilson classic design.  We haven't been to Pinecrest in several years, and this was a fixture on our rota 'back in the day'.  Close to I 95, I'm sure we'll get some players from SC and Fayetteville.  This was where one of the founders of the CHGA, John McKee III played his golf and reigned supreme.  We lost John a couple of years ago, and will honor his memory with this event.$27 to ride, $17 to walk.  A full country lunch will be available for $10 for…See More

March Event - Salisbury CC on a Sunday?

Trying to gauge interest on playing a different day than Friday?  I would say 99% of our events are held on fridays.  Am wondering if we moved to play a different day of the week, would that improve attendance?  To that end, Salisbury CC in Salisbury, NC a great Ross track has offered us a day of play Sunday afternoon March 14 at 1pm.  That's the first day of daylight savings time, so plenty of daylight.Just wondering what everyone thinks about playing on a sunday afternoon.Thanks.See More

Broken shaft

Might have hit 20 balls (35 and 50 compression) with my mashie and the shaft is cracking. What do I do? Buy a new shaft from Louisville golf or rob peter to pay paul? I have another mashie by another club maker. I'd have to plug the pin hole and drill a new one if that is the case. Comments?...

New member

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
