Bogus Web Member Request

We had a guy sneak by and gain web membership to the CHGA site a few weeks ago. Alert members let us know they had received spurious emails, so we were able to delete the guy.  Here's one of the latest attempts so you can get an idea of what Rich is up against on a regular basis. This one is easy to spot, but they never seem to give up.Far and Sure,Lang WillieSee More

Pet Peeve on the golf course....MUSIC!!! 7 Replies

I don't know about you guys, but my biggest pet peeve (beside slow play) is hearing someone's music on the golf course.  I heard from a couple of you that the music on the Cradle this past week was a…Continue

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

Evan Mickle

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…
