Offered here are the actual golf clubs and bag of legendary business magnate and aviator Howard Hughes. Hughes is perhaps as well known for his eccentricities and wealth than his many business and aviation achievements. Our favorite golf story about Howard Hughes is when he got kicked out of Riviera Country Club for landing his plane on a Riviera fairway behind Katharine Hepburn's house because he was late for a date with the movie star. 

Included in this auction lot are 8 irons and 4 woods all custom made by Wilson for Howard Hughes. The golf bag has a plate with "Howard Hughes, Lakeside CC, 1946" Lakeside is the legendary Hollywood area country club known for a Who's Who of movie stars among its members.
