St Andrews Golf Museum
The British Golf Museum is the home of golf’s history, located in the heart of the where this very sport originated. The museum holds Europe’s largest collection of golf memorabilia and provides an interactive, hands on insight into over 500 years of golfing history.
The museum provides an educational yet enjoyable day out for all ages, even for those who are not avid golfers. For the younger family members, there is a Children’s Guide available at the front desk. This enables children to learn about the history of the sport in a more straightforward, entertaining way. There’s even a trial for the younger children that highlights the most interesting objects within the museum.
In summer, the museum is open Monday to Saturday 9:30am to 5pm and Sunday 10am to 5pm. During the winter months, they are open Monday to Sunday 10am to 4pm. Adult tickets cost £10, with children under 16 admissions free of charge. Your ticket is valid for use for up to 2 days, so you can visit as frequently as you like (great for the ever changing Scottish weather!). You will also receive a complimentary guide book in your admission cost.
Picturesquely situated just a short walk from the centre of town on the Bruce Embankment, the museum is open all year round so you can discover its delights, come rain or shine. In addition, they offer a relaxed dining experience in their café with a comprehensive menu made from local produce. The panoramic views from the café are a reason alone to pay them a visit, far-reaching over West Sands beach and the 1st tee of the famous Old Course.
