pinehurst golf shop on the block

Tom Stewart’s Old Sport & Gallery in Pinehurst is for sale. That’s the short news. The rest is in the history and makeup of both the shop and its owner, a combination of historical golf artifacts from books to paintings, golf clubs and curios and the owner whose life has been devoted to their buying and selling. Stewart knows golf. He knows its antiquity and he knows his market. But he is at the right time in his life to step back and pass the shop on to a new owner, one who will, hopefully, embrace the vision of golf’s heritage in the items that pass through this marvelous fixture in the old village of Pinehurst. Another bonus – author and journalist Jim Dodson wrote the story. Click here to view the story on Global Golf Post.
