Film Archive

The British Golf Museum has access to The R&A’s vast film archive. Much of it can be viewed in the museum. From the earliest surviving footage of a golf match, shot in 1898, to Open Championship highlights dating to 1914, visitors can watch their favourite players in action, analyse their golf swings and re-live the greatest moments in Open history.
