LAKE HALLIE, Wis. (WEAU)— The Lake Hallie Hickory Classic is a golf tournament using hickory-shafted golf clubs from another era.
In 2018 Wisconsin hickory golf offers the second annual Lake Hallie Hickory Classic. An eighteen-hole event with open, women’s and senior divisions will be played at the 1925-built Lake Hallie course in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin, just eighty miles east of Saint Paul and Minneapolis and ten miles north of Eau Claire, Wisconsin.
Lake Hallie offers nine holes along Lake Hallie and a back nine on a plateau above the lake and Chippewa River. Play begins at 9:30 am on Saturday, June 2, and a social gathering with food and drink plus an awards ceremony by the old stone fireplace will follow play. Best dressed awards will be given.
Local participants and those wishing to stay the night are invited to a nine-hole scramble on June 3rd at the “Chicken Heaven” course which Society of Hickory Golfers member Paul Savides has designed on his forty acres south of Eau Claire near Mondovi. Breakfast is served starting at 8 am and play will begin by 9am.
