To celebrate the return of the Open Championship to St Andrews and to mark the beginning of Museums and Galleries Month, the British Golf Museum yesterday opened a new exhibition looking at the Open Championships held at St Andrews. The Chairman of the Museum Trust, the Hon. John Lindesay-Bethune, performed the opening ceremony.
The Open Championship is returning to St Andrews after a 5 year break. The new exhibition celebrates many of the great moments and exciting events that make an Open Championship held over the Old Course a special event for players and spectators alike. The memories of past Opens, the ghosts of past Champions and the sense of history add a unique element to the Championship which are themes reflected throughout this exhibition.
As well as exploring this legacy the exhibition displays some of the treasures within the Museum’s collection which relate specifically to St Andrews Open Champion, from Tom Kid to John Daly and many others in between
The exhibition will remain at St Andrews until the end of the year. Museum admission prices are £3.75 for adults with concessions and group rates available.
