Our authentic American wood mallets have a classic feel and are face-balanced, keeping the putter head square through the stroke, providing a more accurate impact resulting in more made putts. Available wood Choices include::
Cherry (also available in LEFT HAND) is our most popular Authentic Wood Mallet. It is a light wood with close grain, silky sheen and warm coloring.
Maple is also a popular choice. It is a solid and strong wood used to manufacture musical instruments and gymnasium floors. The vibration dampening characteristics of Maple come from the close tight grain and provides an excellent feel of a wooden putter.
Walnut wood is hard, strong and fine-grained finishing to a beautiful luster.
Pear tree is hard and dense and sands to an incredibly smooth finish.
Persimmon is one of the toughest and oldest woods in North America, and has been in existence on earth since the Cretaceous Period.
As the 1920s continued to roar, and the game continued to grow in popularity, golf club manufactures (Spalding, MacGregor, Tom Stewart and George Nicoll to name a few) began offering six or seven irons that matched in a set. These matched sets gained momentum with golfers and golf companies alike, and eventually became the numbered sets of irons golfers utilize today.
Our matched set of Precision hickory-shafted irons is modeled from an original 7-piece set of George Nicoll irons. The set includes a Mid Iron, Mid Mashie, Mashie Iron, Mashie, Pitching Mashie, Mashie Niblick, and Niblick (see table below). The face scoring matches the Nicoll set with dot punches giving the irons the authentic look and playability you expect from Louisville Golf. The irons come with a solid hickory shaft turned in Louisville, KY to our exacting specifications. Each shaft is graded and inspected; only the best shafts make it to this set.

This putter replicates the Willie Dunn Pyralin putter that was patented in 1903. The sides of the head “are parallel and substantially at right angles to the face for a short distance, so as to aid in fixing the direction of the shot.” It is one of the first center-shafted putters ever produced and is face-balanced.
