Croatia Hamilton Golf Classic
In 1999, Club member Boro Boros arranged the first ever Croatia Hamilton Golf Classic. It started small - some members of the soccer team and a few friends got together at a local course to shoot some balls around.

There was even a rule in place: "Whether you bring a friend or not, you pay for two!" This was to try and get more people involved, and also so that the tournament would be a profitable fundraiser for Hamilton Croatia.

The annual scramble format tournament has grown a lot since then. It's been held at top-notch golf facilities across Southern Ontario and has averaged a field of over 100 golfers over the past four years.

In a scramble, each player tees off on each hole. The best of the tee shots is selected and all players play their second shots from that spot. The best of the second shots is determined, then all play their third shots from that spot, and so on until the ball is holed.

The tournament includes a full day of golf, a catered dinner, and prizes for all participants including closest to the pin and longest drive rewards.

18th Annual Golf Classic
Book Your Foursome
Sunday, Sept. 11, 2016
From the most avid to the most amateur golfer, each year our tournament continues to impress!

Your day will include a scramble round with cart, a putting contest, specialty holes which include a photo (among other things) taken by our "golf tourney girls", a catered buffet lunch -- roasted lamb and/or pig will definitely be featured -- and great prizes for all participants, including closest to the pin and longest drive prizes.

A shot-gun start tee-off is set for 8 a.m. to ensure most of the field finishes at roughly the same time. This allows for the lunch, drinks, trophy presentation, and prize allocation followed at The Centre, 166 Green Mountain Road to start in a timely fashion ... Cost for the entire day is $125 per golfer. Payments must be made by Sunday, August 28th (Super Sunday Picnic) in order to avoid the $25/person late fee.
King's Forest Golf Course
The HCGC returned to King's Forest Golf Club in Hamilton after a one-year stint at Mystic Golf Club in 2010. The location and difficulty of the course are two major reasons we keep coming back!

King's Forest measures 7,150 yards, par-72 from the tips with a rolling layout that features some terrific elevated tee shots, lots of challenging doglegs and six holes that cross the Red Hill Creek.

The addition of irrigation ponds and significant improvements to the Red Hill Creek, which winds its way through the property, in 2009 have only added to the challenge.

Check King's Forest G.C. for further info.
Tournament History
Most Recently
First time champions Michael Krasic, Patrick Hurley, Damir Posavec and Rob Belanger won the 2015 tournament by retrogression. They tied with "The Pricks" (Steve Jurcic, Rick Vaive -- yes, that Rick Vaive -- Zlatko Andrisevic, and Joe Spiler) by shooting 13-under 59 (a shot short of the record 58 set in 2013). Defending champions Ilija Josipovic, Tony Hlacar, Rudy Hlacar, and Mike Mielko finished tied for fourth, five shots back.

Last year was the sixth tournament in a row that we had a shot-gun start, and the 163 golfers was the second highest total for the HCGC - four less than 2014, but still 23 more than the 140 we had in 2013.
