We took our friend who has just turned professional golfer, she had never been to Scotland never mind the Home of Golf....she was thrilled to bits when we had arranged her a trip there on 14/11/13 we went into the museum to be greeted by a very friendly young man, he explained the ticket price £6.50 per person and that we could use the ticket over two days which i thought was brilliant value, we were given a really high quality programme to support our visit and a great souvenir to take home (sponsored by ROLEX)
Once in the museum there was lots of things to see and loads of interactive stations where you could watch old footage of golfers in the rough lol...how golf balls were made ....lady golfers, and a full history of Golf.
We went to a part of the museum where you could practice a bit of putting using some old style clubs, you could even dress an in the garb of the day, this was great fun as i putted a few balls in front of my friend the "professional" lol, i can only say it was down to the club she used...looked strange compared to today's brands.
We has a brilliant time, and as we were only in St Andrews for the one day and couldn't take advantage of the two day offer we spent nearly two hours taking it in. The museum was spotless and well maintained and you could see a real pride was taken in the displays and housekeeping. The staff were all very friendly and answered the few questions we had with ease and knowledge.
I would highly recommend this museum when your in St Andrews whether you play Golf or not.
One thing to note is that it was all on one floor so good for wheelchairs
