Antique golf catalogue
Quarantine resulted in a fairly concentrated period of work on restoration of hickory woods and irons so there are a record number of antique golf clubs on the site. If lockdown regulations mean you are allowed out where you are make this the year you try hitting a few golf balls with an antique hickory golf club. In some localities, it may just be a putter on the carpet but it's a start.
Hickory clubs on the site have been around since before the influenza pandemic of 1889, the American polio epidemic and the Spanish flu of 1918. Choose a gift or your own piece of golf history from the catalogue.
An antique golf club, ball or hickory set, is a memorable (and lasting) gift for a golfer. To help, we have grouped what we think make excellent presents for golfers in our Gift Ideas section. In addition to finding a perfect golfing gift, a purchase of an antique golf item may be the start of a hobby, a collecting passion or a chance to play golf with hickory clubs.

Simpson patent brassie
The last featured club here was made from celluloid. This one is another unusual material, “hornite”, made according to a patent filed by Robert Simpson of Carnoustie in 1894. The patent specified that the club was ‘strong and durable’ and, at least in the case of this brassie, the claim seems to be true.
