The Florida Hickory Golfers ended the year with our annual championship at Mount Dora Golf Club. The weather was outstanding, and the play was spirited and friendly. Once again wrestling the Stevens Trophy from Will Peterson (below right) proved to be impossible as he amassed a total of 72 Stableford points. Will has had quite a year in capturing the Florida State Hickory Open Silver Club and the Mid Pines Hickory Championship. But I think his best moment was his trip with his mom to play at many of the historic links in the Highlands of Scotland.
Congratulation also goes out to Cody Johnson (above left) who achieved a plus 21 to take home the Heritage Trophy for the coming year. Cody has spent a lot of time working on his game and it certainly showed over the course of the two-day event. All in all, it was a great ending to our hickory journey of the past year. We look forward to 2023 and venturing to some new venues and to a few of our od favorites.
I would like to thank all who have supported our hickory efforts and wish you all a safe and blessed Christmas season.
All the best. Far and sure.
