The first event in the scheduling of the major events on the Championship Series, the Mid Pines Hickory Open in Southern Pines, N.C. is one of the year’s most popular outings. Played on a classic Donald Ross gem, the tournament often hosts as many as 100 players, including international visitors. On the Friday before the event, neighboring course Pine Needles hosts a foursomes competition. Or, should you prefer, schedule a practice round on Friday at Mid Pines. The Saturday evening trade show at Mid Pines is a lively affair with many exhibitor tables showing everything from clubs to books, balls and other golf collectibles. The golfing center of Pinehurst is nearby as is the Tufts Archives, a repository of Donald Ross history.

As well, the SoHG hopes to have a shared meeting with the Golf Collectors Society, which has scheduled its annual general meeting, trade show, and golf outing for Nov. 12-14 at the Mid Pines/Pine Needles Resort.

The 2017 Mid Pines Hickory Open is part of the 2017-18 Championship Series season of major events that will end with the 2018 USHO. (Other events that qualify for reduced CS points may come between the 2018 USHO and the 2018 Mid Pines event.)

A PDF registration form for the 2017 event will be posted here when available.
