Vintage Hickory golf Club, Robert Forgan, St Andrews.
A good early muscle back, smooth face iron with hickory shaft stamped R. Forgan & Son, and a good sheepskin grip. The back of the club head stamped 'EDINR' (Edinburgh). A good clean club.

Robert Forgan is one of the most famous club makers who started working for his uncle Hugh Philp in 1852. Philp was renowned as one of the best wooden club makers around. When Philp died in 1856 Forgan took over the business. Many of the other great club makers such as Auchterlonie and Anderson learned their trade with Forgan before setting up on their own.
