“Golf Enthusiasts Trip”
Reviewed May 15, 2014

A beautiful, highly organized museum from the early days to today. In process of building a Jack Nicklaus Room to open March, 2015.
My wife and a friend, neither play golf, enjoyed the museum as much as I did. Beautifully arranged and easy to view and get information about golf history.
Even a Scottish style putting green with 9 holes that you can play using putters from 1930 and earlier.
Hours Tuesday-Sunday, 10-5.
Adults $7
USGA members- $5

“Must love Golf”
Reviewed March 26, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I was surprised at how small the actual museum was. Not much there. Just a bunch of trophies. Also, really no gift shop on site. All on their website. The research area is fabulous. You need to be admitted which I was and actually did some research.
The best of all is a tour of the test center. This makes the visit worthwhile. It is only done a couple of times a day; but make sure you do it.
Also make sure you do the putting green with the old wooden putters and simulated old balls (you take home the ball as a souvenir).

“A Must Visit for Even the Casual Golfer”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

The fairly recent museum renovations offer an extraordinary glimpse at the game as it has evolved in America since its earliest beginnigs here in the late 1800s. The Hall of Champions and the areas dedicated to golf's pivotal eras are extremely well-done and provide not only a visual but an interactive experince as well. Finally, one should visit the Pyne Putting Course behind the museum and experience not only the "HImalayas" nature of this 16K+ square foot course but experiment with furnished early ear putters and balls as well. A terrific family experience!
