Research tells us that R.Simpson Carnoustie was one of the really great clubmakers, he was born in Elie in 1862 but is associated more with Carnoustie where he was the professional between 1891 and 1898 and where he established his clubmaking business sometime before this. He began his clubmaking apprenticeship aged 16 with George Forrester and, on it completion, went to work for Robert Forgan in St Andrews. Although not yet 21, he applied for the position of clubmaker with the Dalhousie Club and, out of forty applicants, was successful. He was soon joined in the business by two of his brothers Jack and Archie. This Club is in good playable condition with a new Grip and Wax coated thread use for the whipping then finished with Shellac to protect it from any bag damage that may occur.
