If you have a few quid down the back of the sofa, or better still in your back pocket, get yourself down to Christie’s.

For a snip, how about a lovely old picture of North Berwick golf course by John Lavery dating from the 1920’s. Wouldn’t it look great over the mantelpiece and only 200-300,000 pounds?

If you think Titleist balls are expensive at three pound each. How about trying a ‘Featherie’ golf ball? Made from cowhide and goose feathers, these balls were so expensive golfers would keep them for up to six months. With inflation, a good old feathery ball will now set you back between 5,000-20,000 pounds.

Here at Golf Refugees we’ve been pondering about making a modern-day ‘feathery’ golf ball. There are lots of goose feathers flying about as we are located near the National Badminton Centre.

  1. Many of today's best golf clubs can be custom fit for lie angle, shaft type, length, and grip type and size. Professional club fitter can frequency-match each club in your set to get the ultimate feel. Therefore, you can order the club you want with the specifications that best fit your swing. And in many cases, at a cost which is the same as an off-the-rack set of clubs. This is done by checking swing speed electronically and then properly orienting all shafts to ensure greatest shaft stability at impact.Personalized Golf Accessories
