The U.S. Hickory Open Championship Committee and the Society of Hickory Golfers are proud to introduce the USHO Patrons Fund.
It is our belief that, as our sport has developed and grown, it is important to showcase our most important event, the U.S. Hickory Open Championship. This tournament should stand alone, atop all others, in terms of each participant’s golfing experience, and in the perception of the golfing public, hickory or modern, that this event is our standard – the singular event designed to identify the country’s
champion hickory golfer of the year. Tournament entry fees and raffles alone cannot provide the funds necessary to take our Championship to the next level. Media, advertising, signage, function enhancement, venue availability, and tournament
general expenses, are all areas that should benefit from additional funding through the Patrons Fund. The growth of our hickory game also will benefit from the spotlight shining on the Society’s premier event.
Two passionate Society members agreed to seed the Patrons Fund by matching the first $10,000 of contributions from Society members. This has succeeded and brought in moneys to support the 2019 USHO. We now have a commitment for an additional $5000 from a regional golfer who will match your contribution this cycle. If you, too, are passionate about growing our game, and enhancing our premier event, we hope you will consider making a donation to the fund.
Any amount is appreciated; however, contributions of $100 or more will receive a Steurer & Jacoby leather bag tag. Contributions over $300 will receive a long sleeve shirt with the USHO logo.
Your donation is tax deductible (SOHG is a 501 C-3 corporation)
And a donation of $1000 will receive a Lifetime Membership to the SoHG. You may make your contribution/donation payable by check to the Society of Hickory Golfers, earmarked Patrons Fund.
Checks should be mailed to:
10515 Saddlehorn Trail
Houston, Texas, 77064.
Michael is the treasurer of the SoHG. You may also send your contribution to Dave Brown (16711 elm cir, Omaha, NE, 68130) to forward to Mike. Dave is heading the 2020 USHO patrons fund committee. If you send directly to Mike, please let Dave know of your generosity as he will be reaching out to our membership
Thank you for considering this method of helping us to grow our game. We hope to see you soon at the USHO Championship, or one of our other Society events.
