Antique Golf Clubs from Scotland

A H Findlay
Montrose/USA
A H Findlay Alexander H Findlay, was one of eight golfing brothers in Montrose who did much to spread golf around the world, from the USA to Australia (patience, I will cover them all in time).

Alex is closely associated with Wright and Ditson for whom he designed a range of clubs in 1899. But, in American terms his contribution is much greater. He designed, and played over, the first course in the United States created in the 19th century, probably the first since independence as golf was played in Charleston in the early 1770s based on Scottish export records. This six hole course, which he played over with his partner, Edward Millar, was at the Merchiston Ranch, Nance County, Nebraska. Itís not great news in American golf history circles: golf starting in Nebraska is a bit like the proverbial ginger-haired son-in-law.
