Horton Smith's Personal Detroit Golf Club Vintage Logo Belt


The 1946-1963 Detroit Golf Club head professional and inaugural winner of The Masters Tournament, Horton Smith's personal belt from the club he long served is up for auction here. It should not be a surprise that the leading golfer had great success at Detroit Golf Club, carding a then record of "62" on his home course.

The consigner of this belt included an interesting story of how he came upon it, with the hopes of the belt going to the right collector that will appreciate it as much as he did. With extensive access to the then considered almost a blue collar PGA Tour in the 1950's and 1960's, this belt's owner got to know brothers and PGA Champions Jay and Lionel Hebert. They were then introduced to Horton Smith, with a life-long friendship with Smith developing. Upon the Joplin Ghost's passing in 1964, Smith's family made a point to gift a few personal items of Horton's to the consignor's family. The journey this belt has gone on can be seen in it, yet the museum quality display piece is just that. Nearly 70 years later, this personal belt from the Springfield, Missouri legend will be joining a new collection, likely as a conversation starter for years to come....especially in the month of April. A signed letter of provenance will come with this lot. McMillian's Aunt's name was omitted from this image, but will be included in the letter to the winning bidder.
