In Jeff Ellis' tome, The Clubmaker's Art, he describes the significance of a McEwan club: "The name 'McEwan' identifies more than a long nose club – it belongs to the most famous family of early clubmakers." (The Clubmaker's Art, 2nd Edition, p. 43)

Simply put, in the hierarchy of long nose clubmakers, McEwan reigns supreme. No true golf club collection in the entire world is missing a McEwan long nose. In fact, any truly serious collection contains several. 

Offered here is a circa 1860 McEwan (1809-1886) long nose play club (driver). This is an extraordinary example of this master maker's craft. This fine play club has a long graceful head and a shallow face. The club is in excellent condition with the smallest of cracks on the face and some minor separation on the ram's harm sole piece. Approximately 45" long.
