Mr. Hickory Golf

Golf became a lifestyle for Andy Reistetter when at an early age his older brother 'L.P.' gave him the Ben Hogan's Five Lessons book inscribed as follows:

"Golf is a lot like life, the more you learn and understand about it, the easier it is to meet its challenges."

In 1998, "L.P.' introduced Andy to Dick Donovan, the renowned golf book collector and bibliographer. The 'book guy' introduced Andy to life 'across the pond' in Scotland and to the Golf Collectors' Society (GCS).

At his first GCS event in Madison, Wisconsin Andy met Joe DeWulf and Harry Horton. Horton who as a kid saw a dehydrated Ken Venturi win the U.S. Open at Congressional CC was an expert at repairing and restoring hickory golf clubs.

With Horton's professionally renewed hickories in his hands, Reistetter caught the 'play hickory golf' bug and played several seasons exclusively with hickories while wearing knickers.

At last count Reistetter's playable hickory club collection stands at 40 sets and he is ready to enhance your corporate or charitable event with a unique, inspiring and fun experience.
