Visited with my 13yr old son and it was a great time. The Bob Hope exhibit was really well done. The golf simulator and indoor putting green were very good. Took us about 2 hours to go through. The 18 hole outdoor putting greens were not in great shape and was a bit of a waste of time.

We loved this place. As soon as we got out of our car a limo golf cart picked us up and brought us right to the door. The service was great throughout. All the volunteers offered to take pics for us. My favorite part was the locker room. Everyone inducted has a locker with stuff they have donated to the... More

You don't have to be a golf nut to enjoy yourself here. I took some friends who were visiting from out of the country and are GOLF NUTS!! For me the best part was the Bob Hope exhibition, lots of personal information and memorabilia. The Trophy room towards the end of the Hall of Fame tour was truly magnificent, such... More

This was such a treat. We spend the entire afternoon going through the self paced Hall of Fame. We just walked from the Renaissance hotel to the museum. The exhibits were spectacular and every famous golfer you'd ever want to know about is there, including a wonderful exhibit on Bob Hope who was a golfer first and actor second he... More

Loved the Bob Hope section at the beginning. I'm not the biggest golf enthusiast but very nice museum. Very clean, easy to park, admission steep at 19.50 per adult but included putt putt and challenge hole. Even had a cafe. Beautiful grounds.

Really enjoyed this place. A little bit much on Bob Hope. I know he was an integral part in promoting golf and his service to the troops over the years was outstanding, but...... It was really interesting to read about the various players and the history of the sport of golf itself. Being from Roswell, NM we were especially delighted... More

I had the opportunity to spend the day at the World Golf Hall of Fame recently. The displays of golf history including the displays of all the golfers we have know are here to see. I especially enjoyed the displays of my favorites including Phil Michelson. You forget how much Phil and others like Ernie Els and accomplished in their... More

Lots of history in one location. Enjoyed, as I am a golf nut who has followed the game since my twenties. A not miss if you are in the area. Even if you are not interested in golf, the view from the tower is breathtaking. Visited on on 6/5 and the view took my breath away.

I love playing golf but I just could not get excited by the WGHF. Mildly interesting. I went after playing golf so I was already there. Had I driven there just for the experience, I probably would have been disappointed.
