We know wooden-shafted clubs. We play with them. We collect them. We learn about them.

We'd love to see you at one of our events. Come out and play with us. Or just chat and check out some of the relics of golf history on display (this is intended to refer to our equipment – but it may cover some of the members as well).

You can find accounts and pictures of some of our past events on this site.

If you'd like more information, or have suggestions or news for us, please contact us.

2018 Membership Dues for the Golf Historical Society of Canada were payable by January 1, 2018. However, if you have not renewed it is not too late. You can complete and mail the membership form or pay via PayPal (but please be sure to send in a form if any of your details have changed).

Sadly the 2018 C.B.Macdonald tournament will not take place, due to circumstances beyond our control. We hope to resume this tournament in 2019.
