Stop included as part of our Gate1 tour. Clean restrooms, good view of golf course and the museum for L5 is worth going through even though you (me) are not a golfer. Also upstairs is a coffee shop.

We visited the British Museum of Golf after our round at the Old Course. We really enjoyed it and learned a great deal. It is interactive, but does require a lot of reading... or you can just skim what you are interested in. I loved...More
