The tour is a self guided one with lots of information and short videos. We began with an explanation of how one can become eligible for the Hall of Fame: member of PGA for 10 years, 40 years old, winner of ten tournaments or two majors.
We took the elevator to the top floor of the tower where the trophy display was located. Wow - there must have been 30 trophies on display. First the Claret jug, given to the winner of the British Open.
From the tower, we could see out to the grounds and the island green for the Challenge Hole in the middle of the lake. Off to the left is the tee box to the green. This is where you can buy chances to hit the green. As we waited our turn, the guy in front of us actually hit a hole in one! ~First hole in one I have ever personally seen. That was pretty cool.
Then there was Nancy Lopez. I followed her great career from its early beginnings in New Mexico. As a 14 year old she was the Ladies state champion. She was from Roswell and I grew up in Santa Fe and it seemed as if she was always making headlines. Her display was one of the more extensive ones in the building.
Our time at the World Golf Hall of Fame was a lot of fun and well worth the time. We spent a couple of hours there, had lunch and then came back for more. If you are a golf enthusiast like we are, you may find this to be a good stop.
That is all for now. Thanks for joining us on the Roadrunner Chronicles! Until next time...
