2017 Monterey Hickory Classic
Old Del Monte GC

Congrats to 2017 Monterey Hickory Classic Champion Erik Beer with a fine even par 72 highlighted by back-to-back birdies starting on the back nine.


Our annual skin's game, once again provided plenty of fireworks with 2 net Aces! Saving his best for last, Sweeney dropped a timely bomb on #18 for a net skin. The moment just happen to be caught on Erik's phone. :)

Gross - 7 skins @ $8 each
Net - 6 skins @ $8 each

Closest to the pin #12 - $14 - Tim Bell - "back of the green"
Tim was the last player to hit and the ONLY one in the field to hit the green! :) Nice shot!

#4 par3) Michael Scott - Gross 2 - Net ACE
#6 par3) Andy Trice - Net ACE
#9 par5) Dan Vordale - Gross 4 - Net 3
#10 par4) Erik Beer - Gross 3 - Net 3
#11 par4) Erik Beer - Gross 3
#15 par4) Steve Henneuse - Gross 3
#16 par4) Willy Schlick - Gross 4 - Net 3
#17 par5) Tim England - Gross 5
#18 par4) John Sweeney - Net 3

Tim Bell builds a sand tee courtesy of dirt from a nearby gopher mound and impresses all on the 1st tee! :o

Next year's fireworks will come in the form of our match play finalists battling it out on a 3rd day of elimination match play at Del Monte. Set for May 4th - 6th, the change in venue will be a blast and look forward to teeing it up at Old D again!

The NorCal Hickory group returns to Old Del Monte for our 4th annual Monterey Hickory Classic this fall and invites all to join the yearly celebration.


Designed by Charles Maud in 1897 and touted as being the oldest course west of the Mississippi in continuous operation, the old course is a breeze to walk, flat, with tees only a few steps away from previous green as would be expected with a course built over 100 years ago. While the short course certainly appears easy on paper, Old D is well protected with fast contoured greens and plenty of greenside sand.

Putting on a very early Del Monte green.

We have once again been graciously given a local NorCal rate, which extends to our guests. If you're in the area and have the time, we'd love to have you join us.

18 holes medal play - NET event
Low gross individual to be additionally recognized.

$10 SKINS GAME as per tradition!

Cost = $48 Includes:
* all green fees + awards
* payable to course @ proshop
* carts additional $20 per player if needed - payable at course.

Please give us sufficient notice if you are wanting to attend.
Steve: 831) 247-3447

The Monterey Hickory Classic Trophy proudly on display at the Del Monte Grill

The course has a wonderful cafe and bar that serves lunch for those that might want to get to the course a bit early. Grill closes at 4, but drinks available till 6.

Going to be great weather as usual and hope to see ya there!
