Date: Thursday July 14, 2022
Schedule of Play: Tee times will begin at 10:00 a.m.
Venue: Lake Sunapee CC is a private 1928 Donald Ross design in New London, NH. It is a great track. New London is a beautiful small college town about 90 minutes north of Boston and 35 minutes south of Dartmouth College / Hanover, NH and the VT border. Last July in the inaugural event we had 22 hickory players from 8 different US states play, which was very cool. LSCC must be worth it.
LSCC was also the summer home and club of The Squire Gene Sarazen in the last 30 ish years of his life. His memorabilia is around the clubhouse and grill. The club has some history and good hickory bones.
More details will follow, and pricing should be approx. the same as 2021 at $80. We’ll do a combination of Low Gross and Net Stableford scoring to accommodate everyone. *I’ll need some help with that in the bar restaurant afterward 🙏. Prizes are your name on and a photo with a nice trophy, and local fine grade A maple syrup.
Please send IOI indications of interest to David Webster at firstname.lastname@example.org or text 407-415-7270. I have received over a dozen enthusiastic IOIs already. I’d love to grow this from last years 22 players to 24 or 28 or even more. The Club and its Head Pro and owner seem to like us.
*Mr Jim Pucci is also working on a companion Hickory event at the Mt Washington Inn, Bretton Woods NH that same week. Shooting ideally for that Saturday July 16, more details still to come. Jim may shake things up and use the older 1899 nine hole course in front of the famous hotel, that Harry Vardon and JH Taylor played way back in the day. Two of the ‘Great Triumvirate’ stars of their day, the 3rd being James Braid.
Looking forward to this in July; more particulars will follow, including local places to stay, restaurants etc. DZW
