The Royal and Ancient Golf Club is the custodian of a distinguished collection, comprising paintings, maps, trophies and medals, as well as clubs and balls.  Through the preservation and study of its records and artefacts, much has been learned about the history of the Club, the members who shaped its history and indeed the history of golf in general.

The Club began collecting formally in 1864.  We are pleased to show a range of selected items from the collection.
