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.

A very interesting insight particularly about women's involvement in golf over the years. Enjoyed being able to read about the history and development of the game without spending an age with so many other things to see here.

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.

Quite an interesting museum and very much worthwhile for golfers. I think even non golfers would find many of the articles and information fascinating. I think the interior design of the museum left a lot to be desired but interesting exhibits .

It was interesting to see how far back golf was played and how they played it then and how they play it now.
