PGA Museum of Golf Unveils New Walking Audio Tour
Technology Used by Grand Canyon National Park and U.S. Olympic Training Center Will Guide Museum Goers Around Iconic Exhibits, Major Championship Trophies and Displays
Using technology created by OnCell, the PGA Museum of Golf is implementing a system that is used by other top destinations in the country. The system is as simple to use as checking a voicemail, as guests can dial (772) 224-3681 and input the stop number located on 18 pin flags around the Museum, to listen to a short story about each exhibit. Among the highlights from the tour are descriptions that trace the history of: the PGA of America, PGA Championship, Ryder Cup, Senior PGA Championship presented by KitchenAid, PGA Grand Slam of Golf, PGA Golf Professional Hall of Fame, Walter Hagen, Horton Smith, Dow Finsterwald, Donald Ross and the four major Championship trophies on display in the Museum’s rotunda, including the original Wanamaker Trophy.
“We’re very excited to debut a new and fun way to learn about nearly 100 years of PGA of America history, along with our major championships, through an interactive cell tour of the PGA Museum of Golf,” said PGA Golf Club General Manager Jimmy Terry, who oversees three Championship golf courses designed by Tom Fazio and Pete Dye, the PGA Center for Golf Learning and Performance and the PGA Museum of Golf. “Whether you want to discover how Samuel Ryder proposed the Ryder Cup first be contested between the United States and Great Britain in 1927 or the back story behind Walter Hagen misplacing the PGA Championship’
The cell phone tours will be regularly updated, as new golf history develops throughout the year.
Owned and operated by the PGA of America, the PGA Museum of Golf is located next door to the
PGA Center for Golf Learning and Performance. Exhibit hours are 10 a.m.-4 p.m. daily through April 30. From May 1-Dec. 24, the Museum is open Friday-Sunday 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Admission is complimentary year round.
