The Ryder Cup
We are frequently contacted by collectors looking something - anything - relating to the Old Course at St Andrews. Unfortunately, when it comes to the Home of Golf, virtually no interesting pieces of memorabilia exist. While Augusta has its badges and jackets and flags and the like, the Old Course at St Andrews offers very little to collectors. In fact, a search of our archives reveals almost no pieces of Old Course memorabilia not directly related to the Open Championship.
Offered here is a truly rare opportunity to obtain an actual piece of the Old Course at St Andrews. For the first time in the course's multi-century history, the St. Andrews Links Trust installed yardage markers on the Old Course in the 1980s. When the course was finally lengthened in 2005, those yardage markers had to be replaced. Jack Nicklaus wanted the 18th hole marker, and a very well known television personality obtained many of the remaining bronze markers.
This original 6th hole tee marker (hole name: "Heathery Out") comes with a letter of authenticity from the St Andrews Links Trust. It has been spectacularly framed and will surely be the highlight of almost any golf collection.
