The 12th U.S. Hickory Open (USHO) is scheduled for June 20-22, 2019. The USHO is the premier hickory golf tournament in the United States and will be played on the historic Belvedere Golf Club in Charlevoix, Mich., a northern Michigan gem of lush fairways and challenging greens.
Belvedere began with the organizing of the club in 1925 and the selection of William Watson as its course designer. By 1926, the course was ready and in 1927 the Belvedere Golf Club was officially opened. Attractions in the area for guests and spouses are the beautiful Lake Michigan beaches, the shops and restaurants of Charlevoix, scenic Lake Charlevoix, and just a few minutes away, the coastal resort of Petoskey and its many shops and restaurants.
The $365 entry fee will include a practice round, two tournament rounds, heavy hors d’oeuvres reception party, Monday dinner, banquet/awards awards, and a tee gift.
2019 USHO organizer Dennis “Marty” Joy II says he and the Belvedere Club members are excited about the event and eager to show off the club and the area. “We’ve been hosting the Belvedere Hickory Open for several years and are happy to host the 2019 USHO. It will be a treat for us as well as the players and their guests,” he said.
