One unique fact connecting the GHS and the GCSAA is that Mel Lucas, who was the fourth president of what was then known as the Golf Collectors Society, also served as president of the GCSAA, in 1980. He is the only person to have served that role in both organizations. 

"I’ve had the honor of serving as president of both the GCSAA and the GHS,” Lucas said. "From my unique vantage point, I can attest to the important role that both organizations play in generating greater interest in golf’s history as well as its future growth and sustainability.”

GHS membership benefits include regional and national gatherings, an informative and entertaining quarterly magazine titled The Golf, a superb website with over 50 years of archives, Zoom interviews with prominent people in the game and best of all, unrivaled camaraderie with others who value the history and traditions of the game.
