Retro golf: History comes alive during a weekend-long event at the Temple Terrace Golf & Country Club, 200 Inverness Ave., featuring two hickory golf tournaments: one for amateurs and one for professionals. Pre-1930s authentic era hickory-shafted clubs and balls are provided. Period attire is suggested. Golf enthusiasts are encouraged to attend to watch professional golfers compete at the historic golf course the way it was meant to be played with hickory equipment.

Mike Stevens, two-time National Hickory Champion, will be playing. Past fields have included notable names such as David Frost and Leroux Ferreira. Proceeds benefit the non-profit Temple Terrace Preservation Society.

Starting at 11 a.m. Saturday , join a four-person scramble open to all golfers. Entry fee is for $125 per individual player, $460 for a group. Period attire is encouraged, such as Par 4 golf caps, knickers, vests and neckties or bow ties for men and long skirts for women.

At Saturday evening the annual "Knickers Bash'' begins with cocktails at 6 p.m. and dinner at 7. Cost is $35 per person.

On Monday the Professional Hickory Golf Championship kicks off ceremonies with bagpipers; the tournament begins at 11 a.m. This tournament features a $5,000 purse.
