Or a very old Tricholoma

More like a very old Tricholoma dryophilus.

Leucopaxillus would make sense

Would certainly explain the oddly discoloured gills.

The fruiting body was like wood, it was like arm wrestling to get it out of the ground. Quite heavy as well.

Except for the described habitat…

my first idea is Tricholoma fracticum.
