Sharpies Golf Sign - Elizabeth Street Sydney (now demolished)

Sharpie’s Golf House Sign

Sharpie’s Golf House was a golf shop on Elizabeth Street, in the inner city suburb of Surry Hills, near Central railway station. For decades it featured this animated, electric neon sign above the shopfront that had become a Sydney landmark. Since the 1950s, train commuters out of the city at night had marvelled at the golfer sinking the golf balls in the hole. The shop closed a few years ago but the Sharpie’s Golf House Sign was heritage listed for its value as a unique example of 20th century advertising. The sign is currently in storage with the intention to reincorporate the reconstructed sign on the building after it has been redeveloped.
