Set Of Seven Playable Hickory Golf Clubs.
A very good set of seven hickory shafted irons by Nicoll of Leven. The set includes No.1, 2, 3, 4 iron, No.5 mashie, No.7 mashie-niblick & No.8 niblick. The club heads are all stamped with Nicoll's 'hand' cleek mark and S.J. Proudfoot. The original hickory shafts are also stamped with Proudfoot's name and the club he was professional at, Royal Worlington & Newmarket Golf Club near Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk. S J Proudfoot was the golf professional at Royal Worlington & Newmarket for a short period in 1935. All the clubs have polished leather grips, dot punched face markings and are forged in rustless iron.

The irons have a loft of 18°, 22°, 27°and 31°, shaft length 39 inches, 38 ¾ inches, 38 inches and 37 ½ inches respectively. The No.5 mashie is 35° with shaft 37 inches long, No.7 mashie-niblick is 45° with shaft 36 inches long & niblick has a 53° loft and shaft length of 35 ¾ inches.

This is a great set of playable original hickory shafted golf clubs. If you are wishing to play some hickory golf the best balls to play with are low compression balls that will give at impact, such as ladies balls or soft feel balls.

Royal Worlington & Newmarket Golf Club was founded in 1893 and is a nine hole course. It is also the home course to the 'Light Blues' the Cambridge University golf team. The key feature of the course is that it has sandy soil that allows for excellent conditioning, therefore it drains well and remains on normal green and tees throughout the winter.
