I can give Old Golf Auctions no higher endorsement than to say that, whenever I receive an enquiry relating to golf memorabilia from a member of the public, as I do very frequently, I always refer the enquirer directly to Old Golf Auctions. They are knowledgeable, reputable, efficient and highly service driven. I'm not sure one could ask for more.

We have purchased several lots from Old Golf Auctions and are very pleased with them all. Communications were always prompt via e-mail. Items were packaged well for shipping and there was no long wait. We are looking forward to future auctions that are so professionally handled.
Debi and Larry Raitz, Troy, Michigan, USA


I have bought items in every one of your auctions and have been nothing less than pleased with all my purchases. Items were described accurately and questions on condition etc were answered promptly. You have consistently exhibited the highest levels of courtesy and professionalism. In the one instance in which we had a 'problem', it was resolved fairly and quickly. Your auction site is user-friendly, and I love your 'after auction' sales! Keep up the great work - I can't wait for the next auction!
Peter R Helweg, Richmond, Virginia, USA


Great service and communications. I've done a lot of business with Old Golf Auctions and will do so in the future.
Allan From, Raleigh, North Carolina, USA


I have the greatest faith in your auction website. I have had the privilege of knowing Graham Rowley for many years now - since well before the Internet enjoyed the success it does nowadays - and I have always traded with great confidence and pleasure.
Jean-Bernard Kazmierczak, Ecquevilly, France


Old Golf Auctions has my unqualified endorsement as an excellent firm with which to do business. The web site provides ample information and photos, and the item descriptions are accurate and entirely trustworthy. Obviously, a lot of time has been spent to ensure that all goes smoothly - whether you are a buyer or a seller. Your firm has provided a much needed service to collectors in its ability to reach a worldwide audience instantly. I am a very satisfied customer and have recommended you to a number of my friends. Many thanks for the friendly, efficient and prompt manner in which your business is operated.

Old Golf Auctions has opened new collecting avenues for the serious golf collector. The professionalism displayed in each presentation results in every lot description being accurate and clear, leaving little doubt as to that item's true identity. The administration of the auction is not only well done but is, in fact, a fun aspect of the entire ordeal. The web site is perhaps unequalled on the Internet with respect to the detail conveyed and the comprehensive, well thought out research. 'Completely thorough' would be a two-word description of this unique and exciting auction site. Every effort is taken to ensure that each golf item is accurately represented, priced correctly and handled safely and securely until it has arrived in the hands of the winning bidder.
Carl Tuke Jr, Hobe Sound, Florida, USA


My first experience with Old Golf Auctions was a terrific one. They were prompt with responses to my e-mails, my order was shipped quickly, arrived safe and sound, and was exactly as described. Old Golf Auctions was a pleasure to do business with and I would definitely recommend them to anyone interested in golf and collecting.
Jason Phillips, Scottsdale, Arizona, USA


I have purchased over 50 pieces of memorabilia from Old Golf Auctions. Every item has been either as described or better than described. The attention paid to me as their customer was outstanding: every question was answered quickly and accurately. I was most impressed when they didn't know something - they didn't try to make something up. While I am mostly interested in balls and tees, their inventory and knowledge of classic golf literature is among the best. I will definitely remain a customer!
Dr Stephen I Sloan, Sugar Hill, Georgia, USA


As a lifelong golfer, I recently started to develop what had previously been an ad hoc collection of memorabilia. My particular focus is the Ryder Cup having first attended in 1977 and more recently the last two events. I was delighted to discover Old Golf Auctions, not only for the ability to find some older and rarer items, but more importantly for the assurance gained by the quality and professionalism of the service offered. The items were all shipped safely and securely, with regular communications keeping me well informed of the process and timing. Since my first transaction, I have enjoyed the benefit of their services and knowledge on several more occasions. Their web site is excellent and enquiries are always dealt with helpfully and thoroughly. It is a pleasure to be able to expand my own knowledge and growing collection with the assistance of people who share a similar love of the game and its history.
Richard I Walker, Cheadle, Cheshire, England


A brief note to say I continue to appreciate the auctions you run and the book lists you circulate. The lists are always full of interesting books and other items and, most important to me, the items I have purchased are as described - no surprises. Plus, items are despatched quickly and are packed professionally so that they arrive in the condition described in the auction. My congratulations to you on operating such a high quality enterprise.
Craig Ammerman, Moorestown, New Jersey, USA


I have participated in several of your auctions and have purchased a number of antique golf balls. I have been most pleased with the professional manner in which the auctions are conducted as well as the quality of items. I have received excellent customer service from you, both through phone calls and the Internet. Items are shipped quickly, packaged professionally and arrive in the condition advertised. I consider this one of the very few quality golf antique auctions, would strongly recommend it to anyone interested in the hobby and always look forward to your next auction.
Wayne C Tippets, Boise, Idaho, USA


Internet auctions are a great innovation, allowing people around the world to participate from the comfort of their own homes. I was, however, nervous about purchasing high-end items 'sight unseen' despite the benefit of digital photography. My experience with Old Golf Auctions has been quite reassuring in this regard and my purchases have, on every occasion, turned out to be exactly as described. All the best.
Ian Crowe, Darien, Connecticut, USA


Over the past two years I have been fortunate enough to win a number of items in the auctions operated by Old Golf Auctions. I have always been impressed with the variety and quality of golf memorabilia offered with reasonable opening prices. Items are shipped promptly and are well packaged. In all cases, the photos and descriptions on the auction site matched the received items. Response to e-mail enquiries is always prompt and informative. I do very much appreciate the service and support of Old Golf Auctions and I am already looking forward to the next auction!
Chris Ream, Morinville, Alberta, Canada


find the material available to be of outstanding quality from auction to auction. The condition of said material rates, in my estimation, from good to excellent. The variety of the services provided to the individual bidder is as good, if not better, than any other auction service with which I have come in contact.
Joseph P Garrity Jr, North Kingstown, Rhode Island, USA


I have had the pleasure of purchasing a number of items from Old Golf Auctions in the past and they have always met my expectations with the highest of standards. I am glad that they are providing a great service to the golf collecting community and also allowing us to have the advantage of selecting items that we may not have the opportunity to do on a daily basis. Thanks again for your endeavours and continuous time to bring these to our attention.
Chuck Beaston, Phoenix, Arizona, USA


I recently sold some old golfing memorabilia through Old Golf Auctions. The service and advice was excellent, payment was immediate and the price achieved was totally acceptable. When making enquiries through other auction houses regarding disposing of these items, I was left feeling that maybe I was a poor relation and that the items were not worth very much, which was far from the truth. The interest shown, and other information imparted to me, on the subject of golfing memorabilia by the management of Old Golf Auctions has given me a totally broadened view on golfing antiques. It is well worth dealing with them.
