A very nice six club composite play set fully restored ready for play. The set includes a Brassie, Mid Iron, Mashie, Mashie Niblick, a large headed Niblick and Wry Neck Putter.

The wood and 4 irons have good swing weights ranging from D0 to D2 and all the clubs have been fitted with new hide grips whipped with black waxed linen thread.

The iron & putter heads have been cleaned, polished and the leading edges (bottom edges) have been re cut to remove old stone dint marks. The shafts are straight and have a nice firm feel.

Particulars are as follows:

A.S. Gainey 13° large headed Brassie, swing weight D2, length 42.75” (109cm). He was the professional- club maker at Creigan G.C. from 1921 to 1925. His name is stamped to the crown of the dark stained head. The sole is fitted with a full brass plate held in position by six metal screws. The black fibre sole insert and lead back weight are both securely in place. The face lines have been re cut and the socket joint has been re whipped with black waxed linen thread which has been lightly coated with shellac for added protection.

A.C. Robertson (Singapore) 28° rustless 3 Iron (Mid Iron), swing weight D0, length 38” (96.50cm). The face is stamped with a dot punched pattern.

J.W. Craigie 36° Mashie, swing weight D2, length 36.75” (93cm). The face has a line-score pattern. The makers name is virtually worn away.

G. Johnson 44° rustless musselback Mashie Niblick, swing weight D1, length 36” (91cm). The face has a line-score pattern. George Johnson was the professional-club maker at West Runton G.C. from 1905 to 1932.

E.L. Holdright (London) 50° rustless musselback large headed Niblick, swing weight D1, length 35.50” (90cm). The face is stamped with a line-score pattern.

E. McDonald Wry Neck Putter. Length 33.50” (85cm). He was the professional & club maker at Whitby G.C. from 1905 to 1917. The attractive face is stamped with a dot punched pattern in the centre section with vertical lines on either side.

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.

Postal Charges

Please refer to the Postal Prices, Payments & Returns page.

Orders consisting 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.

Insurance Cover.

All deliveries are insured at no extra cost to the buyer giving you peace of mind that in the event that should an item(s) be lost or damaged during the delivery process you will be refunded in full. When the parcel arrives please check the condition of the parcel before signing for the delivery. This is most important because the courier will not accept liability for damage if the parcel is signed for in good condition and then a complaint is lodged at a later date. If this happens then I will not be able to claim from the courier which means that I will be unable to refund yourself.
