Golf Society at the Women’s Australian Open

Golf Society of Australia committee manned a Museum stand during the Women's Australian Open at Victoria Golf Club last week in support of GSA member Max Findlay and some of his collection of hickory golf clubs.

While a lack of space did not allow for Maxs’ complete collection of old clubs, he spent many hours talking to a stream of visitors about clubs made by, and for, professional golfers attached to various Melbourne golf clubs.

He also talked about clubs in his collection, made by some winners of The Open Championship, which he had mounted on display boards.

Max also gave demonstrations of how to repair, and refurbish, old hickory clubs to golfers interested in playing with their hickories.
