Join the Society of Hickory Golfers

About SoHG

For us, there’s nothing quite like the game of hickory golf. It’s our passion for the game that led to the creation of the SoHG, forming an organizing body for hickory golf. The SoHG coordinates competitions, establishes standards for play and, most importantly, brings together fans of the “royal and ancient” game from all over the globe. It’s all for a love of the game.
