St Andrew's Day Celebrations 2013
27 November until 01 December
To celebrate St Andrew’s Day, The British Golf Museum is offering FREE entry to all visitors from Wednesday 27th November until Sunday 1st December.
This five star, award-winning museum has something to entertain all the family. Golf enthusiasts will love watching rare black and white footage of the oldest known golf match played in 1898, or selecting footage of their favourite golfer in our Open Championship coverage from 1914 to the present day. Come to the museum and you will see the oldest known set of golf clubs in the world, dating back to the early 18th century. Or you can compare your golf grip against our bronze casts of players such as Jack Nicklaus and Nick Faldo.
Adults and children will love our new touch-screen interactives, where you can create your own golf club (and find out if it’s legal!) or even design your own magazine cover. Test your knowledge by taking our golfing treasures quiz or find out more about the spread of golf throughout the world and its early pioneers. We also have the Ladies First exhibition, which celebrates the rich history of the ladies’ game and focusses on some key ‘firsts’, bringing to life important events, stories and characters. Other features include our Children’s Trail and putting green, where visitors can attempt to sink their putt.
With its extensive range of exhibits and activities, The British Golf Museum continues to consolidate its reputation as a world heritage centre for golf and the home of a Recognised Collection of National Significance.
We are also pleased to announce that the Clubhouse of The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews will be open to members of the public on Saturday, 30th November only, from 10am to 5pm.
Museum opening hours: 10am-4pm
