Old Scottish Putters – A Unique Golfing Gift From Scotland – The Birthplace Of Golf
There can be little doubt that golf as we play it today had its early beginnings in Scotland. In the 18th and 19th century the great courses were formed and the rules of the game were written. The first professionals and club makers learned their trade in Scotland as early as 1850. Today over 150 years on Old Scottish Putters invites you to both play and display a club from the past in the form of an original antique hickory shafted putter.
Each putter in the collection was made in Scotland between 1890 and 1930. Scottish professionals trained by club makers from the hickory era have sympathetically restored each putter.
Each club is individually researched and written up in the form of a framed certificate of provenance. The certificate describes the configuration of the club and gives details of the makers and sellers background. Location and family history is also covered and each club is given an approximate date of manufacture. Finally each certificate is checked and signed by a Scottish Golf Historian.
Each club comes mounted on its own made to measure tartan backed antique elm display board complete with Celtic brass fittings. A brass engraving plate is fitted to each board to accommodate a personalized message. In addition a Tartan play bag is included with each club to allow transfer from display mode to course play mode.
The putter is the one club in the bag that has changed least over the last 100 years and most Scottish putters are still both legal and effective on greens throughout the world. All putters in our collection are unique and guaranteed original. They are challenging to source, even in Scotland, and are valuable individual pieces of golfing history.
