A superb small headed 18 degree spoon restored to a high standard ready for play. Swing Weight D0 and Length 41" (104cm).

William McEwan was born in 1872, the 5th generation of the famous McEwan club making family. He first learnt the art of club making at the family business in Musselburgh before being sent south to open a branch shop at the Royal Epping Forest G.C. in 1890. He stayed there until 1894 when he moved north to Formby G.C. where he spent the remainder of his professional career until 1930. His name is still clearly visible within an oval stamp to the crown of the attractive persimmon head.

The full brass sole plate is held in position by six screws and both the black fibre sole insert and lead back weight are firmly in place. The socket joint has been re whipped using black waxed line thread coated with shellac for added protection.

The head measures approximately:
3.50” (9cm) from toe to heel along the sole.
Just under 2.50” (6cm) wide across the crown of the head.
Just over 1.25” face depth including the sole insert and brass plate.

The straight shaft has a good standard firm flex and has been fitted with a new ochre brown hide grip whipped with black waxed linen thread.

Postal Charges
Please refer to the Postal Prices, Payments & Returns page. All prices include insurance.

Orders comprising of more than one club will significantly reduce the postal charge for the added club(s) or other items, i.e. the cost to send up to 8 clubs is virtually the same as for one club so should a friend also wish to make a purchase then combine the orders and save money. Please contact me for a postal quote BEFORE placing your order on the website.

Buying Hickory Clubs For Play.
This club(s) has been carefully inspected and sympathetically restored to a condition suitable for playing hickory golf. However it is important to remember that the average age of a hickory club is between 80 to 100 years and even older in some cases so you are purchasing an item of golf history, i.e. a golfing antique.

The majority of hickory clubs will be fine for play when handled with care but there are a few that even after being restored can have problems. For example iron heads become loose, shafts can split and socket joints do sometimes break down under the stress of the golf swing, the impact of hitting a golf ball or another hard object such as a stone or practice mat. These are the risks that you must be prepared to accept when playing with hickory clubs and therefore we cannot be held responsible should such damage occur.

GOLF BALLS – Important Advice.
It is always advisable to use a ‘soft feel’ ball when playing hickory golf to help prevent damaging the clubs. Most modern balls have a hard outer coating that can damage the face of a wood and put unnecessary strain on the socket joint. Hard balls can also cause an iron head/hosel to become loose from the wooden shaft. Driving range balls also invariably have a hard outer coating, plus hitting off rubber practice mats can sometimes loosen iron heads. Always practice on a grass surface.

Please refer to New Mesh & Dimple Balls for Hickory Play (see main menu) to view our replica 1920’s style soft feel balls.

Keeping Your Club(s) In Good Condition:
After a round of golf, should your clubs have become wet during play please ensure that you thoroughly clean and dry the heads when arriving home. Applying a thin coat of ‘gun oil’ to the iron heads helps protect against rust forming.

It is advisable to store your hickory clubs in a cool dry place. Too much moisture or heat can affect the hickory shafts, for example the shaft can shrink within the hosel causing the head to become loose. The cooler the environment - the better.
