Forrest Dillon, of Brunswick, Maine, has been practicing with his hickories since early May. His favorite track is at the 9-hole Mere Creek Golf Club, which he says is just right for hickory golf. A recent member of the SoHG, Dillon often takes friends to the range and has them try a club or two. “They invariably like it,” he says.

With the optimism born of a true golfer, not to mention a hickory golfer, Dillon thought he would invite others to a hickory club outing at Mere Creek. That’s how hickory golf spreads, with the joy and enthusiasm of one person who hopes to share the game with others. So, he asked the pro, who gave his blessings, and Dillon put up a few modest posters and let his friends and others know what he was up to.

No matter if it is a one-person event, or two dozen, we wish you all the best with the Hickory Club Open, Forrest. It is sure to be a fine day on the course at Mere Creek.


Two-person scramble, 9 Holes.
