Former golfer's shop celebrates golf's history

— Former pro golfer Tom Stewart says his shop in Pinehurst Village is his way of protecting the sport's history and integrity.

“I love golf. I love people. I love the history, so, it’s a great fit,” said Stewart.

The shop is filled with golf memorabilia across a range of values.

“I have ten-pound sterling trophies from 1899 won by famous people,” Stewart said. “I’ve got $50,000 paintings, original oil paintings. I have bronzes from the best sculptors in the world, but I also have $10 magnets.”

Stewart’s stock ranges from the simple to the extravagant, from autographs to paintings to books and old sports equipment. It's a rare museum in the center of Pinehurst. Where else can you get a hand-painted golf ball, all the way from Russia?

“This is all an original hand painting of old post cards from Pinehurst in the early days, and the glory days of Pinehurst, which are returning,” he said.

The memorabilia isn’t only from Pinehurst.

“I actually have a painting of St. Andrews that’s priced at $75,000, but I could be talked down a little bit,” the former golfer said.

To Stewart, the shop is unique because of what it holds and the reactions of people that come into browse.

“It’s fun, because I see pieces that would only be seen in museums. I’ve got them all here. It’s a virtual tour. And people say, ‘You could charge admission.’ I say, ‘No, I charge admission to get out,’” Stewart said through a laugh.
