The successes of reality TV shows like Pawn Stars, Storage Wars, and Canadian Pickers could be attributed to the lure of great fortune. People often find exhilaration in possibly having – or finding – that single needle in a haystack that might be worth a great deal.
The thought of dusty old clubs which haven’t been touched in years generally doesn’t excite too many people, but some see value in age and potential with the passage of time.
Fortunately for those of us who do, the Golf Historical Society of Canada (GHSC) will be hosting its annual “Antique Golf” Trade Fair & Auction on Sunday, April 3 at the Canadian Golf Hall of Fame and Museum – and they want to check out YOUR antique golf collectibles.
Appraisers and collectors will be on hand to let you know if you truly have a hidden ‘treasure’. The knowledgeable members of the GHSC will identify any of your golf collectibles for FREE, including wooden-shafted golf clubs, balls, tees, porcelain collective ware, books, photographs, trophies, etc…
There is no need to be a member of the GHSC to attend. Admission and parking are free.
Doors open at 10 a.m. and the auction (which all are welcome to participate in) begins at 2 p.m. The cut-off for auction items is 1:30 p.m. and those wishing to bid on items must register by no later than 1:45 p.m.
The Canadian Golf Hall of Fame and Museum is located on the grounds of Glen Abbey Golf Club at:
