Current cost for adults is $4 and the Canadian Golf Hall of Fame and Museum is open 10am-5pm 7 days a week from April 1- October 31 (then closed Saturday and shorter hours on Sunday 11-4)
In the museum you will find the Hall of Fame and Trophy Room. You can also try your luck at the putting green with a 200 year old putter and a featherie ball! You will learn what golf is, find out when golf was first played, why the golf ball is the most important element of the game and how mass merchandising has affected the original game of golf.
