Photos: World Golf Hall of Fame and some of its greatest moments
ST. AUGUSTINE, Florida — It’s almost the end of the line for the World Golf Hall of Fame and Museum, which is closing after 25 years in this Northern Florida town that sits about a half-hour from the PGA Tour headquarters.
The complex’s run included 16 induction ceremonies, 76 new members, special exhibits honoring the game’s greatest players, entertainers and U.S. Presidents — plus the memories of as many as 280,000 visitors per year at its peak.
Much of the contents from the museum are being shipped to the Pinehurst Resort in North Carolina as part of the United States Golf Association’s new USGA Golf House Pinehurst, set to open in the late spring of 2024.
The upcoming closure has us feeling nostalgic — and found us taking a walk down Memory Lane at some of the greatest moments in the village’s history.
