Iain Forrester is a golf pro at Golf & Countryclub Hoenshuis in Voerendaal. But he is also a specialist in the field of historical golf materials. The Dutch Golf Museum received several antique golf clubs from its collection on loan, including two special ones from Batavia.
The clubs were made around 1910 and belonged to the Dutch owner of a tin mine in Batavia, also the owner of Onderlinge Hulp, a well-known retail chain at that time.
What makes them special is the Dutch text on the clubs and the fact that they are very rare. The clubs can now be admired in the Dutch Golf Museum.
