Chris Hickey grew up caddying at Woodway Country Club with this twin brother Greg. He passed suddenly in November 2014. A beloved husband, father and brother, Chris is missed dearly. Given his love of golf, their many memories of caddying together, and understanding the difference a caddie scholarship can make, Greg and his family decided a caddie scholarship would be a wonderful tribute to Chris.
In 2016, the inaugural Christopher C. Hickey Invitational was held at the Country Club of Darien. Friends and family gather annually to continue his legacy. The proceeds are used to fund the Christopher C. Hickey Scholarship which is awarded to caddies with exceptional need in Westchester and Fairfield counties. Currently there are 10 recipients of the scholarship.
The 6th Annual CCH Invitational was played on October 4th at the Country Club of Darien. It was a record setting year as $150,000 was grossed for the CCH Caddie Fund.
