    Roberto: '...this wonderful club was first offered to the open market by Sotheby's in their July 1996 auction...'

    Woking Golf Club was founded in 1893 by a group of London barristers. Many of the best amateur golfers of their day played at Woking and members included Freddie Tait, John Low, Robert Harris, Roger Wethered and Bernard Darwin; not only were they good golfers but golf historians and writers. Woking Golf Club began assembling their collection during the 1920s and it grew rapidly into the well recorded and famous 'Woking Collection'. The majority of clubs and golf balls were sold by Sotheby's 12 July 1996, lots 535 to 570.
