What a great spot to get a sense of the history of golf. The Hall of Fame recognizes the greats of the game, but it also traces the history of the game. In addition there is a great exhibit that honors and highlights Bob Hope. It is easy to spend 3 plus hours in the museum. Your ticket also allows... More

My husband really wanted to visit here so I tagged along. (He indulges some of my picks too!) Even though I am not interested in golf the grounds and the building are absolutely stunning. I’m sure my husband could rattle off dozens of fascinating exhibits and memorabilia on display. From a non-golfer standpoint I enjoyed the display showing the precursors... More

My husband and I had a fantastic experience at the World Golf Hall of Fame. It was amazing! The exhibits were wonderful. They have a replica of the 17th at Sawgrass that you get a couple shots at. That was very cool. They have volunteers that watch the hole as witnesses. I just wish they were out there on the... More

I love golf, really. I love golf history, but this place bored me. The exhibits are static and wordy. There is a remarkable amount of empty space as you walk through the hall. The lockers near the end were really poorly done. Some should embarrass the people they purport to honor. Hubert Green has a very nice couple of cases,... More

For twenty bucks all those interested in golf memorabilia should make a bee-line here. The grounds are spectacular. Think green and immaculate. A free shuttle circles the grounds and you can hop on for a ride. An admission includes a fun 9 hole putting green and golf shot over water. Inside the complex one can spend hours viewing info of...

If, like me, you like golf and you're near or in Saint Augustine this is the place to visit. The first thing you see upon entering is an exhibit on Bob Hopes contribution to golf. Don't try to read every single thing. Get the highlights and move on to the next part of the building. There's a really interesting exhibit... More

Upon entering, we expected to see a lot about Bob Hope because I had already read the reviews here on Trip Advisor. Yes, there was a lot about him and his contribution to the game of golf. But you don't have to read it all if you don't want to. Just move on. The rest of the exhibits were really... More
