D & W. Auchterlonie 43 degree smooth faced Lofting Iron with wide sole c.1895
Product ID: I004W


A fine example of a late 19th century lofting iron which has been sympathetically restored for a smooth face play set or would make a very nice display club. The length is 37.50” (95cm).

The provenance is also a nice feature with the club having been made by D & W. Auchterlonie of St. Andrews, a well known family of club makers during the hickory era. The head was supplied by Robert Condie (see the rose cleekmark) who was a highly respected cleekmaker based in St. Andrews and the shaft is stamped R. Forgan & Son, St. Andrews just below the grip. The original shaft was possibly replaced at a later date.

F.H. Ayres 32 degree smooth faced Lofting or General Iron c.1890
Product ID: I011L


A fabulous smooth face lofter or possibly a general iron. This magnificent iron has been restored back to play condition retaining the original thick hide grip over under listing. The powerful swing weight of F8+ demonstrates how these early irons felt compared to much lighter irons produced in the 1920’s. The period this iron was produced could well be 5 to 10 years earlier than the date shown above. This iron would also be an eye catching display club in the correct setting.

The head is simply stamped F.H. Ayres under a capital ‘S’ which is the model reference. Their name is also clearly stamped to the shaft just below the grip.

Unknown Maker 43 degree smooth faced Rut Iron Niblick c.1890
Product ID: I012R


A superb rut iron niblick for display and could also be used for play in a smooth face set. This is a strong club with a swing weight of E5 which is typical for this type of iron made around 1890. The length is 36.75” (93cm).

The makers name is no longer visible.

Blacksmith General Iron c.1870
Product ID: I030A


A fine example of an 1870’s blacksmith general iron carefully restored for display purposes ONLY due to a slight crack in the shaft which is covered by the thick hide grip. The slightly concave face has about 40 degrees of loft. The swing weight is E2 and the length is 38” (96.50cm).

The large blade/hosel has been cleaned and remains tight to the thick shaft.  The blade measures nearly 4.25” (11cm) from toe to heel along the rear and the fabulous thick hosel measures 4.50” (11cm) with uneven knurling (teeth) around the top, typical of irons made during this period.

Tom Morris (St. Andrews) elongated stained Beechwood mallet head socket joint Putter c.1895
Product ID: P004P

George Brews (Royal Blackheath) Long-Nose Scare Neck dark stained beech wood Putter c.1890
Product ID: P009L


A magnificent long-nose putter in totally original condition showing the makers name stamped to the crown with a Masonic symbol shown beneath. The length of the putter is 34” (86cm).

George Brews was the professional-club maker at Royal Blackheath from 1890 to 1902. He was an original member of the PGA. Royal Blackheath is the oldest golf club formed outside of Scotland, official records show the date as 1766 although earlier dates have been put forward such as 1608 when it is said that Prince Henry, son of James 1 (James V1 Scotland) played golf in Greenwich. George Brews also made Samuel Ryder’s first putter.

Samuel Ryder authentic handmade REPLICA scare-neck Putter c.2000
Product ID: P020D


You are now viewing the authentic replica of Samuel Ryder’s putter, the original one is on display at the Verulum Golf Club, St. Albans, England.

The maker of this beautiful replica putter was asked to produce as near as possible an exact copy to the original club using the same materials, specification and worn appearance. The original club was made by George Brews who was the professional-club maker at the Royal Blackheath G.C. from 1890 to 1902. It is believed that the original club dates back to the early 1890’s.

Unknown Maker Smooth Face Gun Metal Straight Blade Putter c.1890
Product ID: P030A


A nice old heavy gun metal smooth faced straight blade putter sympathetically restored for display or could be used for play. The length is 35.50” (90cm) which is typical for putters made before 1900.

The head and hosel show numerous dint marks where other clubs have obviously come into contact whilst in the bag or quite often these old putters would be used off the green for chipping so possibly some of the dint marks have been caused by small stones.

The 'Park' line cut replica Gutta-Percha ball for playing pre 1900 hickory golf @
Product ID: X010


The ‘Park’ line cut Gutta Percha ball is handmade using the same production methods as applied by the ball makers 150 years ago so that today’s hickory player can enjoy and appreciate how golf was played during the period from 1850 to 1900 when playing with pre 1900 clubs such a transitional woods and smooth faced irons. The ball is presented in a box with an information sheet.This ball is made from imported 'synthetic' gutta percha developed to produce the same feel as natural Gutta Percha which has now become a scarce commodity and therefore too expensive to use for golf balls. The natural version is the sap of the Palaquium genus of tropical tree that is mainly found in Southeast Asia, e.g. the Malaysian Sopadilla tree. The word ‘gutta-percha’ comes from the plant’s name in Malay, getah-perca, which translated means percha sap.
