World Golf Hall of Fame
The World Golf Hall of Fame is just north of St. Augustine, Florida, so we were sure to check it out while we were in the area. We all really enjoyed it! You could spend an hour or a day here. (FYI: tickets are good for two days.)
A special section dedicated to St. Andrews had a small replica bridge to make you feel like you're there. Also, they had 1800's wood putters for us to try out on a putting green surfaced to be era specific also.
Around the corner, another putting green features a surface similar to what the pros play on today - SO FAST! We also all enjoyed playing a hole on the simulator. The volunteers at the museum are so welcoming, happy to share information, and talk golf!
There was a special section dedicated to TPC Sawgrass, which is just down the road from here, and we enjoyed watching replays of hole-in-ones by the greats. They even had a replica of the #17 island green that visitors can take a shot at. It was so much fun taking a few shots at the green! The boys got really close, but didn't make it this time.
Seeing the history of golf and how much the game (and clubs) have changed over the years was really amazing. There's so much memorabilia here too!
This year (in just a few weeks) Tiger Woods will be inducted into the Hall of Fame, so there were several special Tiger displays that were so cool to see.
We even spotted President Eisenhower's custom golf cart. (Did you know that he had his own cabin built near #10 at Augusta?)
After we finished touring the museum, we wandered around the pond and over to Bill Murray's Caddyshack restaurant for lunch!
