Class of 2011 Induction Painting Doug Ford, Jumbo Ozaki, George H.W. Bush, Ernie Els, Frank Chirkinian & Jock HutchisonThe World Golf Hall of Fame: Time for a Visit!
Which Northeast Florida museum features Emmy awards, several pairs of cowboy boots and green jackets and a co-ed locker room? If you didn’t know the answer is the World Golf Hall of Fame & Museum, it’s time for a visit!

Celebrating 136 of golf ’s greatest players and contributors, the Hall of Fame is located at World Golf Village between Jacksonville and historic St. Augustine off Interstate 95, and has something for everyone who loves the game. In addition to the displays of historic artifacts, personal memorabilia and hands-on exhibits that seem to fill the museum almost to capacity, it features a new exhibit on the Class of 2011 in Shell Hall and additions to the Member Locker Room, featuring 2,500 items in that room alone. So, if you’re saying to yourself “What locker room?” - it’s probably time to find out what’s new!

What’s New?
Each year, several new enhancements are added to the Hall of Fame experience, creating new reasons to visit.
The Class of 2011 Tribute Exhibit: A special exhibit with items from Frank Chirkinian, Ernie Els, Doug Ford, Jock Hutchison, Masashi "Jumbo" Ozaki and President George H.W. Bush are displayed in Shell Hall. President Bush’s cowboy boots with golf spikes, Chirkinian’s five Emmys, a Japanese sword from Ozaki, Ford’s 1957 Masters jacket, Hutchison’s 1937 PGA Championship medal, and the irons Els used to win the 2002 British Open are among the dozens of items on display. Directly across from the exhibit, bronze reliefs of their likenesses are displayed on the Wall of Fame.

Nancy Lopez Exhibit“Voices from the Hall” Audio Tour: Guests have the opportunity to add an easy-to-use audio tour to their admission. The voices of golf legends like Arnold Palmer, Gary Player, Nancy Lopez, Tony Jacklin, Tom Kite, Carol Mann, Annika Sorenstam, Louise Suggs and many more share stories about their artifacts, major championships and memories throughout the museum.

“Nancy Lopez: Pride, Passion & Personality”: This exhibit, honoring one of the most dynamic women ever to play on the LPGA Tour, contains over 150 items from her amazing career. Two of the most notable are the trophy she won as part of the victorious U.S. Solheim Cup Team and the legendary Ray Cook putter she used to win so many of her 48 LPGA titles. The exhibition includes special additions to the Hall of Fame's popular audio tour giving special insight from Lopez herself about items in the collection. That audio, combined with photos and items from her career, gives guests an intimate look at Lopez’s rapid rise to greatness, starting from her humble beginnings in New Mexico when she won the New Mexico Women's Amateur as a 12-year-old.
