The Burke/Roseman Golf Club

Recently a good friend of mine, showed me an old hickory golf club that he had bought from a golf club collector. Looking at the club you can make out the words Burke and Roseman. Jack Burke, Sr. was the original pro at Hyperion Field Club and Joseph Roseman was the Pro/Superintendent at Des Moines Golf and Country Club. The club also says Des Moines on it. The intials A.M.D. stand was a personalization for who the club was made for. The club was made around 1910 or so. You can click on the photo to get a better view of the club or Roseman's article.
