Fantastic golf museum that traces the sport from the 16th Century when sticks were used for golf clubs and walnuts were used as balls. The museum includes a robotic test center for golf clubs that are being manufactured today. There is also a charming gift shop and an outdoor putting green that is open to the public.

I believe there is something, we’ve overlooked during our vacation.” Well. unknown to me was the USGA Museum and Testing Facility was located in the town of Far Hills. Indeed, the USGA Museum...

I'm not that into golf but I went with someone who is. The exhibits were intersting enough that I enjoyed the visit and the golfer I was with had a great time.

My husband and I visited the museum at the front-end of a NYC vacation. The area in New Jersey is beautiful and it was a nice contrast to the concrete jungle where we spent the next 5 days. We arrived just as the museum was opening and other than a small group, we were the only visitors at the time.... More

This was actually pretty interesting. We were in the area, & the golf enthusiast wanted to check it out. He found it to be well worth the trip, even in the ice storm. And even though golf isn't my thing, it did hold my interest. The place isn't large, but the exhibits are interesting. Worth it.

A diamond in the rough........(get it?) But really, once you find this place, you are delighted to be here. The Museum is done very well with exhibits, videos and lots of information that will allow you to impress your buddies as you chase the little mottled white ball. Very worthwhile to visit even if you are not a golf enthusiast.... More

Me and my wife went here while in the area as she was a great sport throughout the entire experience. The property is impressive and you wouldn't believe the amount of workers that filled the parking lots. We first were greeted by the woman at the main desk as she immediately set us up on the putting green. We had... More

Excellent exhibits and videos on the great players, events, and history of the game. We learned so much. As with many places there wasn't time to see everything. We would like to visit again and next time we'll participate in the Pynes Putting Course where visitors putt on a large green behind the museum with replica antique clubs and balls.... More

The museum was fantastic. Besides the the highlighted exhibit on the African-American history in golf there is the Arnold Palmer room and the Mickey Wright room filled with many, many artifacts from their careers. Awesome to see all the trophies from the U.S. Opens Professional and Amateur. I would like to have more time there. It is worth a trip!
