Golfing equipment tells a fascinating story of how technology has influenced the development of this popular sport. In the evolution of the game of golf, changes in the materials and techniques in the making of golf balls have been followed by changes to the clubs, to the game itself, and the courses on which golf is played. Using antique and classic golf equipment, this volume traces the development of balls and clubs from the early Scottish handmade feather balls and longnosed wooden clubs, to the high-tech metal and plastic clubs and scientifically designed balls of the modern game of golf.

W. Lyn Stewart has collected antique and classic golfing equipment and accessories for many years and founded the Canadian Golf Museum in Aylmer, Quebec, in 1967. David R. Gray is a researcher and writer specializing in the history and wildlife of the Canadian Arctic.
