These guys were great! They were fair, accommodating, and excellent. The "Pool of Unity" is an excellent venue for a ceremony. Just don't expect the Renaissance Hotel (next door) to be helpful, fair, reasonable, or anything that would be expected. One of the only things that went well that day. Bravo guys!

Golf can be difficult, fun, exciting, frustrating and many other descriptive words, but at all times for a true golfer it is a sport filled with tradition and respect. The golf hall of fame does a wonderful job of respecting the game of golf and it's many heroes of the sport. We highly recommend a visit to this attraction if... More

Pretty building and nice views failed to make this a worthwhile experience. Mostly this is pictures of famous golfers including stuff in their lockers (yes, there is actually a display of locker contents for some famous golfers....I always wondered if Jack used Gold Bond). Sounds exciting? (sarcasm), will it isn't. This place needs to be interactive (i.e., something to do... More

Not sure whether those who aren't into golf would feel the same way, but I thoroughly enjoyed our visit. There is a lot of history on display along with a number of interactive activities. You can take as much or as little time as you like to go through. We went fairly late in the day and pretty much had... More

Just like Gary Player says... You have to go. It starts with the volunteers. What a great group of kind and helpful people. Truly if I lived in the area, I'd want to volunteer there myself. I was with my lady, who has bad legs and can't walk for long, so consequently I couldn't spend as much time as I... More

What a great learning experience about the Game of Golf. It was amazing to see the very start of the game and the Clubs and Balls they used. It was interesting to see the player's lockers. If you are a Bob Hope fan, the entire first floor is dedicated to him including his many interactions with past Presidents, his USO... More

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.
