Lang Willie Classic - Postponed due to inclement forecast

The impending weather forecast for both friday and saturday isn't improving.  As such, and in consult with the gentlemen who we honor for the Lang Willie Classic, we've decided to postpone the event until the spring.  At this time the event will become a fixture in our schedule, along with the Moye Maximus.  Two out of the last 3 years we've had weather challenges in December, causing postponement or moving the dates.  My apologies to all for any inconvenience caused by the cancellation. …See More

"Capt. Rich, Thank you for the notification.  Perhaps the 5 Club will be scheduled in the Spring of 2020 on a day adjacent to another CHGA event.  Bundle up, enjoy a cup of hot cocoa after a round through the winter."

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?...

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

An anvil too soon silenced. My son Evan died today. The son any parent would wish for, the husband and father too good to be true, the dedicated farrier all horses dream of, went out to work around his new farm and for no apparent reason just died.

To lose a parent is to lose touch with…
