Overview

The Golf Club presents over 450 of the most magnificent, historical, and valuable golf clubs ever devised to strike a golf ball during the past 400 years.

Inside are rare treasures made by Scotland's Old Tom Morris, known as "The Grand Old Man of Golf," and Hugh Philp, often called the Stradivarious of clubmakers. You will also find modern masterpieces by Ping, Spalding, Callaway, MacGregor, Titleist, Nike and others. You may even find a club that you own!

About the Author

Jeff Ellis is the foremost authority on antique golf clubs in the world. He has appraised many antique golf collections, including those of the Royal Canadian Golf Association and the Los Angeles Country Club. In 1998 he brokered a single antique golf collection with a sale price in excess of $4 million.

In 1997 Ellis's first book, "The Clubmaker's Art" was published. It took 10 years to complete and received widespread critical acclaim. It was named Golf Book of the Year in 1998 by THE GOLFER magazine. In 1999, GOLF WORLD magazine named "The Clubmaker's Art" to its list of "Top Ten Golf Books of The 20th Century." In Great Britain, Ellis was awarded "The Murdoch Medal" for outstanding achievement in the worold of golf literature.

His New book, "The Golf Club: 400 Years of The Good, The Beautiful & The Creative," builds on the foundation established by "The Clubmakers Art." It takes the reader on a fascinating journey that begins with clubs made as far back as the 1600s and culminates with clubs made as recently as 2002. Readers will marvel at the ingenuity and craftsmanship of the clubs awaiting them on these pages.
