Visited the Golf Museum for the first time and was fascinated by the range of memorabilia and facts on display - extremely well presented. I stayed for just under 2 hours but could have happily extended that! Well worth a visit.

A very nice museum. Here you can easily learn more about the history of golf, great players etc. Not a big Place, but one or two hours can easily be spent studying the exhibitions. A nice cafe located on the top floor.

Worth an hour to visit here. A lot of pictures, golf memorabilia, and narrative carefully and artfully displayed. If you love the game, you will certainly enjoy the history.
