Golf is an ancient game and its origin is obscure.
The Heritage of Golf
Museum shows how the game developed
after it arrived in Scotland from
Holland between 1400 and 1500 AD.
The visitor can see the simple beginnings, the natural materials
the craft and skill of the early clubmakers:
some successes and failures
in early experiments
and the beginnings of the modern game.
The museum tells the story from the time when only a few people
in the East of Scotland coaxed their featheries round the rough links
to the present day when multitudes of men and women
spend vast fortunes
on this pastime of beauty and skill.
