About 125th Anniversary Hickory Classic

125th Anniversary Hickory Classic

The Northwest Hickory Society plays every year at Gearhart Golf Links, and this year are extending the invitation to others to join in the fun. Hickory Clubs will be available to borrow, included in the entry fee, and you'll be paired with a Hickory Society member.

Following golf, there will be a formal anniversary presentation in Livingstone's Room, and golfers and non-golfers are invited. We'll celebrate the Links as well as the town of Gearhart.
