I am not a golfer, but this museum was great fun! It's well-kept and the volunteers and staff are extremely friendly. Very fun & the gift shop is a great way to get a few souvenirs for golf lovers. I found a deal on Groupon which included admission for two to the museum and IMAX...good find!

The resort is very nice, the timeshare people left us alone after we told them we were not interested in purchasing, which was great. About a month ahead of our stay I called to request a handicap room, on the ground floor, I was told to call 1 week ahead, which I did. Upon check in we were told no... More

If you are a player or not there is much history to see and absorb at the attraction. From origins to today's golf environment it tells and shows the game. We played the S and S course which has water and many sand traps to negotiate, was in good shape for all the play it handles and can be shortened... More

Although I am not a golfer, I still found this very interesting. The display on Bob Hope was fascinating, and all the clips of various golfers playing or giving interviews over many years were enjoyable. The were several places where you could try simulators. We also went to the IMAX to see a movie on Humpback whales (more my cup... More

My husband and I both play golf and are fans of the sport, so a visit to the World Golf Hall of Fame was a must for us while in Florida this past winter. I would recommend every fan of the sport visit here at least once. We were impressed by the displays on the history of the sport and... More

We stop here annually on our way south. Always play a round of mini golf on the real grass. And try our luck at the Hall of Fame Challenge Hole. I never understood why all of the buildings nearby are vacant. Would think it would be a great location to sell golf memorabilia etc. Sure, there is a small gift... More

Ouimet's statue is a must see and it's free. For only $5 take a round in at the putting course and then with your museum ticket take a shot at the island green. Bring your own club, the distance is about 100yds. Enjoy all the rich history at this fine museum.

We started the day learning about Bob Hop's contributions to the golf world and the world in general, particularly those serving their countries. The exhibits were well done. The volunteers who shared insights into the history of golf were wonderful. I enjoyed the locker room which contained personal items from several golfers. The 18 hole putting course was challenging and... More
