Women's State Golf Association Tournament
In the 1940s, as World War II drained the country of resources and separated families and friends, North Hills became a haven where great friendships provided support through such a difficult time. The Club saw cutbacks and began rationing everything from gasoline to golf balls. It was also during this time that women’s participation at our Club began to increase due to more play on the course and strengthened social groups. At the first board meeting of 1945, the Club extended an invitation to the Women’s State Golf Association to hold their 1945 tournament at North Hills.
In 1970, Vince Lombardi passed away, and North Hills honored his memory by beginning our partnership with the Vince Lombardi Cancer Foundation. This gave birth to the biggest event at the Club. On June 25, 1971, the inaugural Lombardi Golf Classic was held to honor the greatest coach of the Green Bay Packers and to help fund cancer research in his name.
Over its decades of proud tradition, many current and alumni Packers as well as national celebrities have joined North Hills in the Vince Lombardi Cancer Foundation Golf Classic to enjoy golf and fun and to forever pay tribute to Coach Lombardi as we work together in support of cancer research.
The legacy continues
To this day North Hills Country Club Members continue to uphold the legacy established by the Club’s ancestors and carried forward by their descendents over the many years.
