This small museum is interesting...we had a rainy day so decided to tour. It was a little boring for our non golfing crowd, buy pleasantly displayed.

Very interesting about the history of golf. Photos, movies, text and lots of things that were used by different famous golfplayers such as Jesper Parnevik, Annika Sörenstam, Lotta Neuman, Bubba Watson and Tiger Woods.

Part of the museum was closed when we visited as they were putting together a new exhibition, so we had free entry. If you have any interest in golf, then this is definitely worth a visit.

Visited the golf museum on a recent visit. Museum provides a look at the development of golf from the 17th century to today. If visiting Saint Andrews to play golf this is a must to round out your experience.

Had a pit stop and lunch with the kids, Nice place and OK food. Great view to the beach and to the golf pitch for those who like that. Light and open atmosphere.

We were amazed at the information available. It filled some gaps in my knowledge of the ancient history of golf. We expect a 'brief' visit but were there for more than an hour an a half. The only down side was that the modern section...More
