USA Triumph in Grand Hickory Match

October 23, 2013

After 18 holes of hickory golf on Arbroath Golf Course, on Thursday, October 3, Team USA were declared the victors of the Grand Hickory Match 2013.

The match, which was between Team USA and the International World Hickory Select, consisted of 28 players battling it out across 18 holes, playing with hickory-shafted clubs identical to those used by golfers in the 1930s - and earlier. "This is what golf's all about," said Mike Stevens from Florida, a member of Team USA. "Playing in the home of golf, the camaraderie, the hickory clubs - even the weather! And, of course, winning is the icing on the cake!"

Australian hickory golfer Rob had travelled to Carnoustie Country to compete in the World Hickory Open, which was one of several events in the inaugural Carnoustie Country Festival of Golf, as was the Grand Hickory Match. Rob revealed that, despite his team being defeated 16-12, he was delighted to have been invited to be a member of the International World Hickory Select.

"I've had a fabulous time playing golf on the historic Carnoustie Country courses," said Rob. "This was a once in a lifetime experience - or maybe twice, as I'm already planning next year's trip to the World Hickory Open!"

The World Hickory Open will be held on October 7-8, 2014 at Panmure Golf Course, one of the thirty golf courses which come under the Carnoustie Country banner, followed by an expanded Grand Hickory Match event over two days.
