British Golf Museum, St. Andrews, Fife, Scotland

As a golfer, it was sort of a must to visit the British Golf Museum in St. Andrews, the Home of Golf. The British Golf Museum was just behind The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews.

It was definitely fascinating to discover the history of golf. I was able to discover surprising facts and striking feats since golf started 500 years ago.

I saw how the golf balls, golf clubs, and other golf equipments evolved throughout the years.

I realized that one of the Open champions on the picture that the gentleman showed me at the hall of the Royal Musselburgh Golf Club was really a very important person being the first Open champion. His name was Willie Park Sr.

The first golf course that we actually played when we arrived in Scotland was the Royal Musselburgh Golf Club located in Prestonpans in East Lothian which was just a few minutes away from Edinburgh City.

I also saw at the museum the Musselburgh Silver Cup which the gentlemen at the Royal Musselburgh Golf Club was talking about when he saw me taking pictures of the picture of the silver cup hanging on the wall.

We definitely discovered a lot of things and stories when we visited the British Golf Museum.

Although we received a complimentary guide book upon purchasing an admission ticket, I will not tell you all about it. So, I highly recommend that you visit the museum especially if you are golfer.

Visiting the British Golf Museum is going to be even more interesting especially that you have seen a few photos here.

And… I did have a picture with Old Tom Morris, the designer of the Old Course. 🙂
