FOXBURG - The 12th Annual Foxburg Hickory Championship will be held Friday Aug. 14, and Sat-urday Aug. 15, at the his-toric Foxburg Country Club.

Foxburg Country Club is in the hills of Western Pennsylvania, roughly an hour north of Pittsburgh. Foxburg Country Club was established in 1887, considered the oldest golf course in United States.

There are multiple competitions within the Foxburg Hickory Championship. The Championship's pre-1900 categories include Open, Senior (55-65) and Super Senior (66-plus), Open and Senior (65-plus) for the post-1900 division. There is also a Ladies Division planned again for this year.

The featured event is the pre-1900 Open division; the FHC is one of the few pre-1900 events east of the Mississippi, along with the National Hickory Championship, the Wisconsin Gutty Challenge.

The entry fee for 2020 is $250 for men ($200 for Foxburg Country Club members), and $175 for ladies. Entry fee includes golf both days and contest-ant meals at the course. Gutty balls engineered for period play (extra balls will be available at the event's cost) will be issued to each contestant. Meals at the course include Friday brunch on the first day, and a very nice buffet luncheon Saturday after-noon, immediately after play has completed.
