Very simple, if you are a golf fan, this place is a MUST visit. The history of the game from its origins to the equipment development and the story around the greats of the game are all here. Well worth the entry fee.

We went here because my husband wanted to, but I was pleasantly surprised. Very well done and interesting. Nice gift shop. Hats in the gift shop are almost half the price as the same hats in the golf clothing stores down the street.
