Two years ago, the board of the Nederlands Golfmuseum Foundation was invited to give a lecture at the Koninklijke Industrieele Groote Club in Amsterdam. Due to corona, it did not happen, but On Monday, November 22, 2021, the time had come.

Unfortunately, Ferd, recovering from heart surgery, could not be present this time. That is why chairman John Ott went to the beautiful building in Amsterdam together with secretary Jacques Schuiling. Located right on Dam Square, this art-deco style building has been home to the Royal Industrieele Groote Club for over a hundred years. The 1,700 members can attend lectures from about 50 different tables and this time the Golf Table had organized a lecture.


The theme “Golf history and the Dutch Golf Museum” was presented with verve to the 27 golf enthusiasts present in the beautiful library. The historical golf objects brought along and the two short videos, together with the enthusiasm of the two speakers, were also the ingredients of a very successful evening. With which the Dutch Golf Museum put itself well in the picture. Witness also the email that one of the attendees sent the next day:

Good afternoon John and Jacques, I/we enjoyed your interesting lecture and the way you presented and promoted the Golf Museum. I still have a number of “old” sticks / clubs in the garage, which I would like to donate to the golf museum.


For us a great honor to be able to give a lecture at the KIGC Amsterdam. Which was also enthusiastically received. Josephine Groot, thank you for the perfect organization !
