The British Golf Museum St Andrews – Home to Golf’s History

The 5 star British Golf Museum brings to life the full history of the great game. The story told in the Museum begins in the middle ages and sweeps through to the modern game and The Open Championship. At the end of the Museum there is a chance to putt with replica clubs and balls from the last 180 years and to dress up in period golf costume.

Several of the galleries have been re-designed, introducing a more contemporary feel and interactive focus. In 2016, the Year of Architecture, Innovation and Design, our new temporary exhibition space will showcase a special exhibition on the changes over the years to the iconic Royal and Ancient Golf Club.

The Museum caters for all age groups and entry tickets, valid for two days, include a guidebook to the Museum and, for children, a special gift pack and trail.
