Australasian Golf Museum

The museum is a feature attraction of the small township of Bothwell, Tasmania, also home to the oldest golf course in the Southern Hemisphere. Founded in 1996 by former Australian champion golfer, Peter Toogood, the museum is housed in a sandstone heritage building, formerly the State Primary School. It displays items of national and international significance. Prominent Australians who have given their support and donations to the museum include Greg Norman, Peter Thomson, Lindy Goggin, Norman Von Nida, the Toogood and Nettlefold families and Ian Baker-Finch, who donated his 1991 British Open-winning putter and sand iron.


The museum specialises in Australasian memorabilia.
