This 8oz Pewter Hip Flask has been exclusively designed for the Pro Shop, proudly displaying our Old Course logo at the top centre, and presented in a black gift box. The engraving on the front reads:

The rear of the hip flask proudly displays all St Andrews Open Champions from 1873 right though until the most recent open in 2015.
