a few steps across from the R& A club building, found the admission price a little steep- £6 per adult,£5 for a student.but we had a warm welcome and were then each given an interesting brochure,detailing most of the exhibits/ contents. thought one per party would be enough,then the admission could be maybe £4-5 ?. the museum was immaculate,the contents well thought out. there were areas for school parties and some interactive elements,otherwise maybe not so fascinating for younger children. we especially enjoyed the section with golfers from last few decades, and their personal possesions donated for show ( clubs.gloves, clothing, used in major matches).worth going to the museum just for that( if you are a golf lover of course!) .try to squeeze in an hour if you have an interest. the affection and pride they have there for golf is clear to see

All the history one would ever want about the origins of golf. Great artifacts. Easy interesting viewing and well laid out. Probably worth 2 visits to cover all the detail.

Another must see for any golfer and especially for the lover of the history of golf. This museum takes you through golf from it's inception up to modern day golf. Very well layed out and close to the "Old Course" and within easy walking distance from downtown and most hotel locations.

The museum has many priceless artifacts but most of all you get a real understanding on how the game we play now came into being.
Some of the displays with models aren't up to 21st Century Standards (More like 1950's) but they don't detract from the overall experience.

The British Golf Museum is packed with historical information that provides tons of rich context for the great game of golf. This relatively small museum can be appreciated in an hour or two, given how much reading you care to do. If you are at all interested in the history of golf you will be glad to have made the time.
