“Well Worth A Stop”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

This is a great addition to the St. Andrews golf scene. Great exhibits of historic golf balls, clubs, and other artifacts. The hour I allowed wasn't quite enough time, but I still got a lot out of my visit.

“Brilliant”
Reviewed August 23, 2013 via mobile

This was excellent value for money. There is a helpful children's guide and it is very interactive throughout. Also a useful children's section in the middle with pictures to colour which allows adults chance to look around. Although we are golfers, I'm sure that non golfers in the area would also find this interesting

“Fantastic display of golfing history, even for non golfers like me”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

This is well worth a visit especially if you are a golf widow! Or a golfer....it's quite detailed with lots of exhibits and interactive sites. There are historical artifacts that trace the history of golf, both men's and women's, great photos, videos, autographed items, a clothing display, tournament items and histories, and much, much more. There is a small children's creative centre about halfway through. The gift shop had some unusual merchandise that we had not seen elsewhere and the prices were not astronomical. I especially liked the casts of the most famous golfers' hands at the front of the store, demonstrating each player's grip on the club.

“A Great Golf Museum”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

I'm not even a golfer and found this museum to be filled with awesome exhibits, stories and memorabilia. The story of how golf started and continued to develop is all here. I enjoyed myself very much and found this to be so awesome in that it had me thinking about all fazes of the game. I think for a real golfer they'd be in another world.
