While their is stuff to read and old gear to see it is mainly a historical record of the most successful Tasmanian golfers. Still it is not expensive ($5 a person) manned by volunteers and worth the time to have a look for avid golfers like me.

This place is a little gem. Located in Bothwell, it's been put together by some hard working locals. A lot of interesting historical items and maps of the area. The local golf course I understand is the oldest known course in Australia. If you're in Bothwell, call in and have a look at their golf museum and visitor centre. A... More

If your an addict golfer, this place is for you. Was a walk back in time. Started golf when I was 12 yrs old & i am now 60. Even remember some of clubs I assembled when I was working for Brosnan Golf back in the early 80's

For any golfer this a must. The history of golf at Bothwell with Australia's Oldest Golf Course. The array of old golf clubs and banned clubs is interesting.

Very interesting little place. They were currently extending to make room for more donated memorabilia. If your interested in Golf then it's worth while.

The lady working here is also the 'Information' person at the Information centre. She was very helpful and friendly. This is a wonderful town to get a feel for how Australia was, and is, and could be.

This was another great find. The museum is off the tourist track but well worth a visit particularly for golfing enthusiasts. The volunteer who staffed the museum was friendly and helpful and provided some interesting tales as well. There are reminders here of golfing equipment most golfers would like to forget - particularly in the form of aids for the... More

If you are driving between Hobart and Launceston, consider taking the short detour to Bothwell to see this small and unpretentious museum, simply for its interesting collection of Australian made golf equipment. The museum features items that relate to the game before it was taken over by mega-companies and mass-produced, space-age ball launching technologies. We have visited the World Golf... More
