Colf club head, ca. 1600

English

Scarce Circa 1600's Colf Club Head, Rotterdam.

Presented here is a small lead club head 2 3/4" long 1 1/8" high and 1" deep. Some historians believe the Dutch game call Colf was the precurser to modern golf.
The club head here is a nice example to be found, as many do not have any markings on them. This one has a wonderful arrangement of 12 Maltese crosses.
