Northwest Hickory Players

8th Annual Vintage Classic – May 3

Vintage Hickory Tournament
Sunday May 3rd, 2020
First tee time at 10:00 a.m.

The Vintage Hickory Tournament has been one of the Pacific NW “Major” hickory events with Jim Von Lossow as one of the past winners. The Vintage Tournament is in the eighth year and is what started the “World Hickory Golf Day” that is advertised by Society of Hickory Golf (SoHG) and many other hickory groups. The event has always been played at the Meadow Park Golf Course and is supported by the Tacoma Metro Park District Golf Operations Manager, Chris Goodman, who is a avid hickory golfer. Chris always has the course in great condition and set up well for our hickory tournament.

The course has a great practice area, a large putting green and even special low compression range balls for hickory clubs. The tournament host is Barry Field who has been with the Vintage Tournament since the beginning and is moving to Texas this year. We hope you will sign up today and join us to wish Barry well at one of the longest standing hickory events in Washington.

The course was designed by Northwest legendary course designer John Ball in 1915, and is a great hickory layout.
