Enthusiastic dedicated owner Peter Insam gave my non-golfing wife and I a personal guided tour of this incredibly interesting and complete museum. The very wide range of exhibits reflect the diverse history of golf - obviously Scotland is well represented as the home of MODERN golf. Peter is writing a book explaining the real origins of golf but the building itself is older (12th Century cellar ?) than any mention of golf anywhere. One small problem - the model of Tiger Woods hands gripping a Ping golf club is a bit like depicting Lewis Hamilton sitting in a Ferrari !
Quite a surprise to find among the antiquity of the Old City of Regensburg. The owner, Peter, has a theory on the true origins of golf, which he supports quite credibly. I have no idea if it is true or not, but I will let you discover it on your own!
Great and unique little museum, and cheap. The curator did research himself into the origins of golf, and collected many artifacts, much more than I imagined existed; the staff is very friendly and knowledgeable and will spare no effort to explain anything you might want to know. Great way to kill an hour and a half.
Klein, charmant, met een prachtige, deskundige gids (ik wou dat ik zijn naam kon onthouden!), Die duidelijk gepassioneerd over het onderwerp is. Ik was niet enthousiast om te gaan, maar mijn man is een fervent golfer en de cruise-directeur heeft het aanbevolen. Ik ben zo blij dat we het gedaan hebben. We gingen met onze kinderen, en ze genoten er ook enorm van. Vanwege de grootte hoef je daar niet veel tijd door te brengen. Het is zeker een bezoekje waard.
Sehr netter Inhaber, macht die Führung persönlich. Spiele kein Golf, aber der Trip war es wert.
