Antique Sunday Club, Golf Club Walking Stick.
A good walking cane with the handle in the shape of a golf club head. The gentleman's walking stick has a brass club head handle stamped 'PUTTER' mounted on a hickory shaft and finished with a brass ferrule end. This may have started life out as a child's golf club.

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.
