About Us

The award winning British Golf Museum has entertained and informed thousands of visitors since opening its doors to the public in 1990.

Delighting new and returning visitors year after year, the museum continually changes displays and ensures the highest levels of customer care.

Most recently the collections of the British Golf Museum became Scotland’s 38th Recognised Collection of National Significance. The museum received the major award in November 2011. The Recognition Scheme ensures Scotland’s most important collections are identified, promoted to wider audiences, and supported through funding to raise standards of collections care, access and interpretation.

We are now one of only 9 museums in Scotland to be awarded 5 star status by Visit Scotland, having achieved the highest level under their Quality Assurance scheme for the ninth consecutive year. In 2011 the museum was shortlisted as a finalist for the Best Visitor Experience in Scotland, by the Association of Scottish Visitor Attractions. Both of these awards recognise the achievements of staff in offering customer care and facilities of a 5 star standard.
