Antique Sunday Club, Golf Club Walking Stick.
A desirable walking cane with the handle in the shape of a golf club head. The gentleman's walking stick has a beechwood socket head handle with a pegged face insert and a lead weight to the rear. It is with hickory shaft with an old brass ferrule end. Head with Boar's head mark to the crown.

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.
