The World Golf Hall of Fame celebrates golf and preserves the legacies of 164 of the greatest players and contributors to the game from around the world through stories of the achievements and experiences of the Hall of Fame members. Past inductees include Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Arnold Palmer, Sam Snead, Walter Hagen, Bobby Jones and Tiger Woods. The Mission is to preserve and honor the history of the game of golf and the legacies of those who have made it great.
Opened in St. Augustine, Florida in 1998, WGHF has been the focal point for the celebration of the past, present and future of the great game of golf and has served as a steward of the game through engaging interactive storytelling and exhibitions featuring artifacts, works of art, audio, video and photography significant to the history of golf and it's members. This September the World Golf Hall of Fame closed its doors at the World Golf Village and is relocating to Pinehurst, North Carolina. The next induction ceremony will be held on June 10, 2024 ceremony in Pinehurst. While the Hall of Fame will be relocating from the World Golf Village, the legends who have been honored here will forever remain in our memories and in the spirit in which we play the game.
