My latest restoration project a lovely large headed Niblick, Iím a bit unsure of the maker though, I know the Running Stag is the Cleek Mark of The St Andrews Golf Co but the only reference I can find on the net for the Stags Head is at hickoryjohan.se which says the Stags Head is also St Andrews Golf Co but an earlier version, I canít find any proof of this so any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks.
Tim

That cleekmark is of the Glasgow Golf Company run by Charles Millar. He emigrated to Canada in 1920 where he continued his business.

Regarding The St Andrews Golf Company, you and your informant have it wrong, in it's origins at least.
The Running Stag is the cleekmark of The St Andrew Golf Company of Glasgow and Dunfermline, nothing to do with the town of St Andrews in Fife.

The St Andrew Golf Company is especially important on these pages because in addition to making hickory sticks they became associated with Wilson and operated as first, importers and then manufacturers under licence for Wilson. Early imports and copies included patents by Willie Ogg, Denny Shute irons and R90 copies.
Probably belongs in the UK Classic Clubs thread, nice club!!
