Hickory Golf Association

2018 National Hickory Championship

June 07, 2018 - June 09, 2018
Mound Golf Course - Miamisburg, Ohio

As related in an earlier post (NHC moves to Ohio), NHC “Czar” Pete Georgiady was forced by circumstances to locate a new venue and this year is conducting the “National” over Miamisburg, Ohio’s historic Mound Golf Course.  The course is only two miles from the site of the former GCS Cabin Fever Meeting near Dayton Mall, thus the area should be familiar to many players. Playable yet challenging, the course has several unique turns and features and the social facilities at the club are excellent. Dinner will be held at a first class hall in historic downtown Miamisburg.

Contestants play 36 holes over two days. Clubs must be original 19th century or approved replicas (available for rent if you don’t have your own set) and all players use the same modern-made, line cut gutta percha-type balls available through the Championship and Brown-McIntyre Golf. Tee shots are struck from sand tees. Golf bags are not permitted. Players carry clubs under their arm in the manner of the 19th century. There is a simple dress code. Although period costumes are not required, many golfers dress appropriately and prizes are presented to the ‘best dressed.’ The NHC is like no other hickory golf tournament in America, Britain or anywhere else in the world. It is authentic, competitive, historic, truly unique and, above all, fun!

“I’m looking forward to another highly successful “National” and I hope you can join us,” Pete says.
