The GHSC celebrated the 30th anniversary of its founding at Port Hope GCC in July 2018

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.
