The ownership of the company has changed several times and in 1945 the name became Burke Golf, Inc. In more recent years, Faultless and Rawlings have each been owners of the Newark facilities. Burke used dozens of marks. Older Burke catalogues show that the company made and sold a wide variety of golf items besides golf clubs. They first were a maker of golf balls, but then supplied through the Worthington Company of Cleveland. Burke also imported Mills Aluminium Putter heads from England and Nicoll Iron Heads from Scotland which they then shafted in Newark. This Club is in good playable condition with a new Grip and Wax coated thread use for the whipping then finished with Acrylic to protect it from any bag damage that may occur.
