How Much?

By Golfrefugees

If you have a few quid down the back of the sofa or better still in your back pocket get yourself down to Christie’s.
For a snip, how about a lovely old picture of North Berwick golf course by John Lavery dating from 1920’s. Wouldn’t it look great over the mantelpiece and only 200-300,000 pounds?

If you think Titleist balls are expensive at three pound each. How about trying a ‘Featherie’ golf ball? Made from cowhide and goose feathers, these balls were so expensive golfers would keep them for up to six months. With inflation, a good old feathery ball will now set you back between 5,000-20,000 pounds.

Here at Golf Refugees we’ve been pondering about making a modern-day ‘feathery’ golf ball. There are lots of goose feathers flying about as we are located near the National Badminton Centre.
