The ancient game of Colf is considered my many to be a precursor to the game of golf. Not to be confused with the later "Kolf", Colf was primarily played in the Netherlandish speaking part of the Low Countries, the present Netherlands and Flanders. The first mention of the game was in 1261, but the game died off in the late 17th century. Quite significantly, Colf was an outdoor game, unlike the later "Kolf", which was played indoors. Here is more information about Colf: http://www.ancientgolf.dse.nl/colfuk.htm

Offered here is an ancient, circa 1600s, Colf club head. A phenomenal piece to represent the ancient origins of the game of golf.
