4th Dutch Golf Museum Open Hickory Tournament 2020

9-10 October 2020 Golf Course Bleijenbeek 

In these difficult times, we were very happy to be able to welcome 25 hickory lovers with coffee and danish pastry at Bleijenbeek Estate

The tournament started with lots of sunshine in a magnificent environment.


Notwithunderstanding a ‘bit too much’ rain at the end of the day, the spirits were good and the competition was strong. The results can be found here Gents and Ladies.

Report by Marja Kom, Gross winner Ladies Dutch Golf Museum Open Hickory tournament 10 October 2020

On Saturday 10 October 2020, the last tournament of 2020 by the Dutch Hickory Society took place at Golfclub Landgoed Bleijenbeek.

Despite the corona-virus around the Netherlands and Germany we still had several international competitors. Some of whom we had met the opening night before at a very nice dinner.

On Saturday morning we had a very friendly reception by the Dutch Golf Museum with a nice drinking bottle sponsored by Audi. 

It started as a beautiful day, but after several holes we really got wet.
Despite the weather we proceeded playing and trying to keep our clubs as dry as possible.

I have had the pleasure to play with pro Iain Forrester and Klaus Sasse from Germany.

The first nine holes I was not very pleased with my game, which proves that playing hickory remains difficult especially when you think you could make a very nice score. The following nine holes on the par 3-4 course I proved to be a little more in control.

Overall, my score seemed to be acceptable, but I did not have a clue what scores the other women in the contest did make.

Back in the clubhouse we got warmed up and after some drinks and snacks the pre-dinner results of the Tournament were to be announced.

The Gross winner Gents was Brian Gee and to my big surprise I was the Gross winner Ladies.
I had a little déjà-vu since in 2018 Brian Gee was also the winner as well as myself.

I would like to thank the very good organization by Ferd and Maria Vrijmoed as well as James and Angelica Fennell.
