The story

"This hickory-shafted golf club is a unique one as wooden clubs were often beaten broken"

Robert Heineman - owner of Heineman Antiek - takes you back in time with this unique golf club:

This golf club was formerly owned by J. Oosterveer who used to be a pro at ‘The Amsterdam Old Course’ (AOC) and had won the Dutch Open 1917-1930. The AOC is one of the eldest Dutch golf courses including a historical clubhouse.

This hickory-shafted golf club is a unique one as wooden clubs were often beaten broken. Including the fact that this is a Dutch golf club instead of a Scottish one makes it more rare.

This specific golf club is from around 1920 and still in a remarkable good condition. Hickory-shafted clubs were used till +/- 1940, after that they started making steel shafts. Steel shanks were crafted earlier (around 1920), but the conservative Englishmen would have none of it (yet). To convince them of the advantaged of a steel shank, the shaft was covered with a plastic covering what looked like wood.
