“From the Hall to the putt putt”
Reviewed 30 July 2012

The Hall is not for just golf lovers, it is for history lovers. Bob Hope is known for his love of golf. There is a large exhibit dedicated to him and his life contribution to the game of golf. It also takes you thought the beginning of (kolf) golf. With the price of admission, you get to hit a golf ball to an island green! The most hidden treasure is the 18 Hole real grass greens that is fantastic. It is included with your Hall of Fame Ticket or only $5 per person without admission. We did not go, but there is an I-Max Theatre as well.

“If you like golf take the time to visit here.”
Reviewed 24 July 2012

We stop by every year just to visit the museum gift shop and pro shop. There are some good buys if you look for them. The museum is good for golfers; but probably not too interesting for non-golfers. We enjoyed looking at the locker displays. Make sure you visit the 18 hole putting course along the lake. 18 grass greens with some interesting cup placements. My husband and I plan on stopping by next year just to play the putting course.

“Golfers dream!”
Reviewed 23 July 2012

The courses here are fun and challenging to play. There is so much to do and see here for all ages. The have a great putt putt course that has real grass and is very inexpensive. If you are a golfer this is a must see and do. The hall of fame is a huge exhibit and worth the tour!

“Doesn't disappoint...see it!”
Reviewed 18 July 2012 via mobile

VERY well done. Beautiful building, excellent history of golf up to modern times. Lots of memorabilia from inductees. For me the highlight was the tribute to Bob Hope. A large, multi-room, life story of Mr. hope, perfectly done. As they say "if you love golf, you've got to go"!

“Nice museum”
Reviewed 15 July 2012

This museum is definitely for the golf lover, but even those who have a general knowledge of golf might enjoy all to see here. We took our kids, 12, 13, & 16 for a half day of fun. They especially enjoyed the area where we could do practice swings in a simulator.
