Simply put, in the hierarchy of long nose clubmakers, McEwan reigns supreme. The McEwan family was the preeminent name in golf club design for many decades. No true golf club collection in the entire world is missing a McEwan long nose. In fact, any truly serious collection contains several.
Offered here is a circa 1850 Douglas McEwan (1809-1886) long nose play club (driver). This museum quality example is what's known as a “dry original” of this master maker's craft. Douglas McEwan crafted some of the world’s finest examples of feather ball era clubs. This fine driver bears all of its original natural resin varnish finish, and belies its age with raw file marks to the face. This is a museum quality club that would grace any fine collection of ancient clubs.
