Virginia - NC Hickory Cup

As many of you know, the VA boys beat us last year in this storied rivalry.  We have historically played this cup around the Pinehurst area, but it is only right that we travel every once in a while to their turf.I'm curious to know that if we do have this competition in 2020 and it is on VA soil, how many of you would make the 2 day trip to represent the Old North State?  We will look to schedule the matches in late March/early April.I would appreciate your responses.RichSee More

Ford takes Broken Jigger

The 2019 Broken Jigger was played yesterday under beautiful conditions at the very fine Benvenue Country Club in Rocky Mount, NC.  The course was in absolutely perfect condition, allowing us to play the ball down.  We played net Stableford points, putted everything out, and generally played 'real golf' for a change. We used a variety of tees for our 3 different age categories allowing the competition to be played as fairly as possible between the younger guys and the older guys.  I believe we…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?...

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

I am overwhelmed by the response to our tragic loss. The outpouring of wishes, food, labor, contributions,etc is beyond comprehension. Thank you all.

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…
