The USGA Museum: Preserving the Spirit of Golf
The United States Golf Association Museum, located in Far Hills New Jersey, is a one-of-a-kind place dedicated to celebrating and preserving both the spirit of the game of golf and the history of the game in the United States.
Visitors to the Museum will find the world’s premier collection of golf artifacts and memorabilia. There are five rooms dedicated to specific USGA champions which include Bob Jones, Ben Hogan, Arnold Palmer, Mickey Wright and, as of 2015, Jack Nicklaus.
The main gallery tells a chronological history of golf in America as it relates to the USGA, its championships and its champions. Beginning with the six founding clubs, the story of the game is put in its proper context looking at what was occurring in the country politically, socially, culturally and economically. The gallery features six iconic moments encapsulating what was going on during that period of time beginning with The Dawn of American Golf up through The Global Game.
The Museum also offers educational and outreach programs for larger groups of students and adults, arranged in advance. These programs meet national learning standards in a variety of subjects, including history, civics, math, science and life skills. Off-site programs and speaking engagements are also an option which can be arranged in advance for large groups.
