During the horrendous winter of 2014, Margo and I managed to escape for a while to northern Florida. There we discovered one of the world’s great specialized museums, the World Golf Hall of Fame, which opened in 1998 to honour both male and female golfers. Located within the huge World Golf Village near St Augustine, it is the jewel within a complex that includes a man-made lake, restaurants, shops, I-Max theatre, parking lot with shuttle transportation, and the Renaissance Resort hotel/convention centre.



Run by the World Golf Federation, the Hall of Fame is supported by all 26 leading golfing organizations around the world. It aims to promote the sport by recognizing the contributions of its finest players, while educating the public about golf’s long and illustrious history through both traditional and interactive exhibits. Every year it is visited by some 350,000 people, golfers and non-golfers alike.



Over the years more than 120 men and women from many countries have been inducted. Really dedicated golf aficionados will find all the information they could ever hope for about the Hall of Fame, every inductee and how they were selected at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Golf_Hall_of_Fame .
