From conducting the game’s premier professional and amateur championships, including the U.S. Open and U.S. Women’s Open, to modernizing the delivery of the game’s Rules, to supporting sustainable golf course management practices and curating the world’s most comprehensive archive of golf artifacts, the USGA (United States Golf Association) promotes the health of a game that inspires, challenges, and rewards like nothing else can.
The USGA Museum showcases the nation’s largest and most significant collection of golf artifacts and documents. Galleries in the USGA Museum tell the story of golf in America, from the late 19th century to the present. Each gallery focuses on an iconic moment—champions and events in the game’s history that are pivotal for understanding the growth, evolution, and significance of the game in our nation’s history, with a particular focus on USGA champions and championships.
The Museum is dedicated to celebrating and preserving the true spirit of the game as embodied in the history of the USGA and more broadly the history of the game in the United States. By developing and disseminating valuable content and programming, derived primarily from our world- class collections, the Museum reinforces the relevance of the USGA and its important role in the game’s history, while fostering an appreciation of golf’s cultural significance to a worldwide audience.
Today, the Museum is home to the world’s premier collection of golf artifacts and memorabilia, including an extensive library, photographic archive, and film and video archive.
