The musuem is actually much larger than I had expected. It's cool to see everything from the day the sport started, right up to today. Along with the tickets you get a few chances at the tee shot to hit the green out front (which I didn't do to well with), and to check out the virtual golf simulator (that... More

If you are a Bob Hope lover and enjoy the memories of years gone passed then the World Golf Hall of Fame is for you. The entire first floor is devoted to Bob Hope and all he did for TV, movies, stage and of course the USO tours. There are clips going on and memorabilia to enjoy. When my husband... More

This visit was on my husband's bucket list. I must say, we ALL enjoyed it. The information and exhibits were very well done. Just seeing the various trophies was worth the visit. You spend all day just watching some of golf's highlights. Awesome experience.

I'm not a golfer but I really learned a lot from the interactive putting displays and from following the scavenger hunt. I loved the locker room of all the inductees to the hall, like checking out the real people behind the TV images. Who knew that Gary Player always had roasted almonds to snack on as he was whacking the... More

We visited last week, and we had such a lovely time. There is so much to see and do, it is amazing how a game of golf can capture so much. The change in clubs and balls and rules and regulations, how players have been able with new techniques to improve their game. It has come a long way from... More

I went here with my husband during a trip to Florida. He's an avid golfer and if he had been with his golfing friends he probably would've spent another whole hour. As it was we spent about four hours at the museum and at the putting greens. A lot of good information about Bob Hope; a lot of good history... More

This place is great for the avid golfer and fans alike. There aren't that many things to do here. However, the experience to look at all who made it to the hall of fame is unforgettable. Going up to the tower and looking at the entire course from atop is beautiful and exhilarating.

Spent 5 hours and that was not enough time. Excellent display of the history of golf. I loved the Bob Hope display and learned so much on the history of golf. The lockers of all the inductees into the Hall of fame was very interesting on what each golfer donated. Not to miss this attraction if you have any interest... More
