JBL SWISS HICKORY GOLF CLUB MANUFACTORY
Joe B Lauber was born and raised in the area of Zurich and has lived in Davos, Switzerland for many years. He is a master watchmaker with a great passion for perfection. Joe loves to play hickory golf. He is the founder and president of the SWISS HICKORY GOLF CLUB.
For many years, he has been organizing, restoring and repairing hickory golfclubs for his friends and club-members. During that time, he realized how difficult it was to find a nice set of golf clubs for himself and his fellow hickory players. Therefore, he has decided to close the gap of high-quality hickory golfsets. In order to do so, he searched throughout the world for an ideal golf club made in the 1930ies. Next, he found the perfect partners and manufacturers who share his motivation and high quality demands. Together, they have tested many different ideas, models and ways of construction, before they finally found the perfect fit, ready for production.
Today, they are proud to manufacture the first golf clubs made in Switzerland ever - and probably the first forged golf clubs worldwide since 1935.
On January 17th, 2017 the Equipment Committee of Society of Hickory Golfers have approved the JBL-Golfclubs so they are allowed now to be played at any SoHG-Turnament worldwide.
