The Most Expensive Golf Clubs in the World

Most Expensive Golf Clubs in the World

Golf has come a long way in diversity and inclusion, but it’s still a rich man’s favorite sport in many ways. Some golfers naturally have more dollar bills than others to buy high quality equipment and gear. Most golf clubs retail below $1,000 per piece, but you’ll be shocked to find some players who are okay with adding a zero or two to that equation to get what their hearts desire. There are even vintage golf clubs with sentimental value, such as the Andrew Dickson Long-Nosed Putter from the 1700s that sold at an auction for $181,000. Other old gems include the Simon Cossar Fruitwood Metal Headed Blade Putter ($165,000) and the Square Toe Light Iron Golf Club ($151,000).
