Welcome to a travel in time and golf history!
While in modern, contemporary golf a garish technological battle is taking place – for crazy shot lengths, insane prize money and exaggerated athletics – more and more golfers discover their love for the historic roots of the ancient, traditional and honourable game of golf, and herewith the original »Spirit oft he Game«!
The pleasure and enjoyment with this actually so simple and unpretentious game – a small ball has to be forwarded a certain distance by means of suitable clubs and finally sunken into a small hole on the green at the end of the fairway – can be experienced best and truly by a recourse to traditional, historic equipment.
This is why golfers all around the world are enthusiastically re-enacting the game with historical clubs, whose shafts have been exclusively made from the wood of the Hickory tree until about the 1930s.
These hickory golf clubs decelerate the game of golf by their distinct charasteristics and difficulties. A very precise impact and a reasonably slow and controlled swing are necessary to execute good golf shots – but at the same time allowing the same athletic top performances like a contemporary set of clubs, made from steel, carbon or plastic.
The specific and stimilous charme of playing hickory golf emerges from the timeless elegance and basic idea of the game, the challenge, which every golf course sets for the individual abilities of the player. Every specific playing situation requires a particular solution, which has to be solved with the limited possibilities a bag of historical clubs provides.
At any rate, enjoyment is the essential motive to play hickory golf – the pleasure and indulgence with nature, movement, sportsmanship and ancient traditions, always keeping in mind the true motto of a round of hickory-golf: »Enjoy the Walk!«
