This iconic Swinging Golfer Weather Vane, constructed in copper with optional gold leaf details, shows a golf enthusiast nattily attired in old fashioned golf clothes assessing the results of his just completed swing.This weathervane has been popular with golf enthusiasts as well as customers living next to a golf course and newly constructed golf club facilities. Because it is available in four different sizes, it can be appropriately scaled to install on anything from a small storage shed to a turret atop a fashionable 20,000 square foot ‘nineteenth hole’.
One of our customers was at a loss as to what to give her husband for Christmas. His passion was golf and he had just about every golf accessory you could imagine. The one thing they didn’t have was a golf weathervane. She secretly sent us photos of him and we modified this design to create a portrait, using nickel silver (to match his grey hair and beard), adding glasses and gaving him beautiful translucent blue eyes. That splendid weathervane now sits atop their home overlooking ‘his’ fairway.
While most of the golfer weathervanes shown on our website depict male golfers, we can certainly make female golfer weathervanes as well. If you are interested, please let us know. It would be a pleasure to work with you on such a project. We also offers several other golf related weathervane designs. Please be sure and check them out.
The origins of golf are unclear and much debated. However, it is generally accepted that modern golf evolved in Scotland during the Middle Ages. A spokesman for the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews, one of the oldest Scottish golf organizations, said “Stick and ball games have been around for many centuries, but golf as we know it today, played over 18 holes, clearly originated in Scotland.” The game did not find international popularity until the late 19th century, when it spread into the rest of the United Kingdom and then to the British Empire and the United States of America.
