Montegrappa St. Andrews Links Golf Pens
Fittingly utilizing green celluloid and detailed with a golf ball cabochon on the cap with a reproduction of an original illustration of St Andrews Links on the barrel, the Montegrappa pens will signify six centuries of golf played on the Links at St Andrews since approximately 1400 AD. By the 19th century, golf had woven its way into the fabric of the local community, becoming a way of life for local citizens, as players, caddies or ball and club makers. Golf remains the cultural and economic life-blood of St Andrews to this day.
A new range of writing instruments, produced under the Montegrappa brand, represents the quality, history, and beauty associated with St. Andrews Links. To represent the heritage of St. Andrews Links, Montegrappa will create its pens in quantities that reflect important numbers in the legendary golf venue's history:
- 150 marks the 150th year of the Open Championship which will be played at St. Andrews Links in 2010
- 18 represent the holes in a standard round of golf
- 1400 (700 + 700) Golf has been played on the Links at St. Andrews since approximately 1400 AD.
