After having been used as both a chandelier and a telephone, it is now time to let the classic spaceship show the world that it can be of good use to those who play golf – just as Star Wars showed us not long ago.
The design concept was simple enough, a flat putter head that was balanced to the rear by two off-set cylindrical weights. Once it was produced, it bore an uncanny resemblence to the Enterprise, thus inspiring its all-out redress as a licensed Star Trek item that is so cool, it may inspire Trek fans to take up golf! [Uh, some of us do already! – Ed.]
The putter comes in two versions, the higher-end Limited Edition features a special “NCC-1701” head with the serial number (only 1,701 will be produced) engraved on the putter face, a True Temper Double Bend steel shaft, Winn NCC-1701 grip with gold accents, and a magnetized “Limited Edition” mallet headcover.
The regular putter features the unique “NCC-1701” head, a True Temper Double Bend steel shaft, Winn NCC-1701 grip with red accents, and a magnetized mallet headcover.
The new NCC-1701 Enterprise putter from Golfsmith is available from the official Star Trek store for $129.99.
