Object Description

Antique Sunday Club, Golf Club Walking Stick.
A desirable walking cane with the handle in the shape of a golf club head. The gentleman’s walking stick has a persimmon club head with a pegged horn insert and a lead weight to the rear as the handle. The socket head is attached to a hickory shaft with brass ferrule end. Maker unknown but made by a skilled craftsman, the head stamped ‘H.W’.

The ban on golfing on the Sabbath, Sunday, had the effect of the club makers producing walking sticks for canny golfers. They fashioned the canes with a golf club head as a handle and they became known as ‘Sunday Clubs’ or ‘Sabbath sticks’. It is said that on the Sabbath a Sunday Club owner, when nobody was looking, could still enjoy a crafty putt or swing.
