Antiques Roadshow. Auction Hunters. Storage Wars. If these shows have taught us anything, it’s that value can be found almost anywhere and in almost anything. While you consider that dusty hand-me-down of a family heirloom to be priceless…it almost certainly is not and half the fun lies in finally knowing.

While owning that buried treasure is one thing; going out and discovering that hidden gem is a completely different matter. Whether you’re a treasure hunter, hoarder or hawker, the Golf Historical Society of Canada’s (GHSC) annual Trade Show and Auction will offer something for everyone. And whether they’re your great uncle’s clubs or a small town trophy from another era, the GHSC wants to see it. Hosted at the Canadian Golf Hall of Fame and Museum on April 19, appraisers and collectors will be on-hand to separate the studs from the duds.

With a keen eye for a diamond in the rough, the GHSC’s members and historians will take the time to evaluate and identify your golf collectibles. From clubs to tees; balls to trophies; books to photographs – show off your valuables and we’ll show you what they’re worth.

New to the collectibles game? Starting your search for the perfect Father’s Day gift? Vendors will showcase their stashes to help you round out any collection with the rarest of relics.

Shop. Share. Bid. Banter. Come enjoy an afternoon of golf history and discovery. This event is open to the public. Admission and parking are free.

Doors open at 10 a.m. and the auction takes centre stage at 2 p.m. All are welcome to participate.

The Canadian Golf Hall of Fame and Museum is located on the grounds of Glen Abbey Golf Club in Oakville, Ont.
