Schotten Hickory Challenge 2012

The Schotten Hickory Golf Challenge 2012

The Schotten Hickory Challenge will be taking place on the 20th July, 2012, at Burford Golf Club. Please contact us for entry forms or more details.

Our Hickory Golf Challenge was started in 1999 and has proved so popular it is now an annual event. We supply the golfers with a set of antique hickory shafted clubs with which to play a serious 18 hole tournament, but if you have your own set of hickories you are welcome to use them. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the term "hickory" it is the wood out of which golf clubs used to be made.

The tournament will be held at Burford Golf club and after a successful day (for some) players and partners can congregate in the clubhouse for well deserved drinks and dinner followed by cheerful speeches and the prize giving.

If you would like to arrange for your own hickory day then please contact us for more details.
