The “Ouimet”

Our playable “Ouimet”  mesh pattern ball was patented by Albert Penfold of the East India Rubber Company in 1912. This pattern became the favorite of many leading professionals into the 1920s. The most famous model became the Dunlop Maxfli, first made in 1919 after Penfold was lured to Dunlop.

This 50 compression ball is approved for all classic (1900 - 1935 era) hickory golf events.  It is the 'official' approved ball for many tournaments, including the US Professional Hickory Golf Championship, the Hickory Grail and the Stableford day at the World Hickory Open.   It is also an excellent ball for use by slow to medium swing speed players with modern or classic clubs.
