British Golf Museum in top twenty attractions

• British Golf Museum enters top twenty visitor attractions in Scotland.

• Museum attracted over 200,000 visitors in 2016.

The British Golf Museum has entered the top twenty of Visitor Attractions in Scotland.

2016 saw a big increase in visitors to the Museum thanks to the new Café at the Museum, remodelled galleries and an improved shopping experience.

Temporary exhibitions, such as ‘Monumental Changes’, which focussed on the architectural development of the Royal and Ancient Golf Clubhouse, all led to the Museum attracting over 200,000 visitors through its doors.

Judy Chance, Museum Manager said, ‘We are delighted to be in the top twenty of visitor attractions in Scotland.

“The Museum is constantly striving to improve its visitor facilities and with two new exhibitions opening in 2017, we hope to welcome even more locals and tourists to the Museum this year.

“St Andrews is such an important tourist destination in Scotland and we are very proud to be part of this.’
