About World Golf Hall Of Fame, St Augustine

The World Golf Hall of Fame is located at World Golf Village near St. Augustine, Florida, in the United States. It enshrines and honours both men and women by displaying memorabilia, sculptures, and plaques. You will learn about five centuries of golf tradition all housed under one roof. Let history indulge you as you learn more from the early days when golf was played with stick and ball forerunners to modern day game.

On May 19, 1998, the World Golf Hall of Fame opened in its new site in St. Augustine. Several participants of the inaugural class, including Palmer, Sarazen and Snead, were on the stage to welcome the first class for the new building: Nick Faldo and Johnny Miller. The Hall of Fame is a unique vacation destination because it is the core of the World Golf Village. People flock here to enjoy the luxurious accommodations with its added amenities.

The Village provides world class services. The Hall of Fame is supported by a consortium of 26 golf organizations from all over the world. World Golf Hall of Fame’s mission is to honour and preserve the history of this game and legacies of the people who made it happen.

Through interactive storytelling, exhibitions, works of art, audio, video and photography, the Hall of Fame reaches out to you and leads you through history, engaging your senses to appreciate the significance of golf and its members. It is a non-profit organisation supported by the Board of Directors from The European Tour, LPGA, the Masters Tournament, PGA of America, PGA TOUR , The R&A and USGA.

All the exhibits in the Hall of Fame show the struggle pioneers have faced from the late 19th century through to today. They are all statements of social justice and humanity.  The special exhibit sculpture symbolizes the progression of golf. They show that in life as in golf, there is very little difference, between the races of mankind and that we all have a place in golf and in the world.

Another exhibit pays homage to Bob Hope looking at his devotion to the United States troops and the various ways he championed the game of golf. The Nancy Lopez exhibit highlights Lopez’s accomplishments on the course, showing the honest, appealing and entertaining personality that so deeply connected her to golf fans worldwide. Included in the special exhibits are History in the Making and Inductee Exhibits.

The Experience exhibits take you through the Hall of Fame challenge, where you participate in a game of golf to win. Further down you see the Class of 2012 Gallery, The Team Gallery, Golf Simulator, where you can play at the old course and visit the newly expanded and renovated Member Locker Room.

World Golf Hall Of Fame, St Augustine Reviews

  • I had s great time. Got to see all the trophies that the great players won. Got to read about all the famous woman golfers. It’s such an honor to be inducted into the hall. This is my 3rd time here and I would go back again

  • This is a fantastic place. Everyone who loves golf should visit this place. So much to see and do. I am glad I got to see it.

  • Our South African visitor loved the Hall of Fame, especially seeing her flag and her favorite player. And it was cool seeing my name on the leaderboard! Special thanks to Jess at the ticket counter for her cheerful demeanor and superb treatment of our threesome - we’ll be back!

  • Very disappointed, the staff was involved with themselves and ignored my family. We could not use the simulators because the staff was using them all. The par 3 hole was unmanned so we walk d away. All in all a big waste of our time and money. St. Augustine is a great place to visit, do not waste time at the Golf Hall of shame.

  • First rate. But I under-clubbed and put it in the lake. -:(
