What is National Hickory Golf Day?

A celebration of golf, its history, its people, and the links that connect them.

National Hickory Golf Day explores the fun of golf through club collecting and appraisals, scrambles and tournaments, hickory club demos, show and trade fairs, and maybe even a little history. All ages and all skill levels will find the sport has something for everyone. Find out what golfers across the country are learning every day – that hickory golf is not an odd throwback sport for eccentrics, but a challenging mix of skill, living history, and downright fun. 

Have you ever swung a hickory club? Felt the thrill of a sweet connection on that all too-small sweet spot? It’s infectious. It’s definitely fun and for thousands of golfers the opportunity to play golf with hickory shafted clubs has restored the enjoyment of a game that had become routine. National Hickory Golf Day is a time to explore the clubs, to reacquaint yourself with the thrill of shot making, not just hitting a golf ball. Whether authentic clubs or modern replicas, swinging a hickory club is a connection to golf’s Golden Age. Come, explore the possibilities and remind yourself why you were drawn to the game in the first place.
