Collectors of vintage golf memorabilia traveled from across the country to participate in a trade show Tuesday in Southern Pines.
Sponsored by The Golf Collectors’ Society, the event drew nearly 70 exhibitors to the reception center at Pine Needles Resort. More than 100 tabletop displays awaited antique hunters, with items ranging from dog-eared golf books from the 1930s to cigarette cases emblazoned with portraits of long-forgotten players.
