    British Golf Museum to Open Rooftop Café

    The British Golf Museum will open a new rooftop café as part of the expansion and redesign of its premises in St Andrews.

    The museum will close to the public on 2 May 2014 with the building work due to commence in June 2014.  The museum will re-open to the public in June 2015, in time for The 2015 Open Championship.

    The new café will have seating for 80 and an outdoor terrace with west-facing views toward the Old Course and across the West Sands beach. The museum entrance, reception and shop areas will also be revamped as part of the new changes to the building.

    The museum is the world’s premier heritage centre for golf and is situated in the heart of St Andrews on the Bruce Embankment. Awarded 5 star status by Visit Scotland, the museum’s imaginative exhibitions and stunning multimedia bring over 500 years of golfing history to life.

    “The café extension and redesign of the museum entrance, reception and shop can be seen as a new chapter in the museum’s history; it is the most significant development to take place since the museum opened in 1990,” said Angela Howe, Director of the British Golf Museum.

    “We are committed to improving our services for the benefit of our visitors and for the local community and we hope the new-look museum will encourage more visitors.  The architectural design complements the existing building and the roof-top cafe will offer stunning views of the unique surrounding area.”

    Members of the public are invited to view plans for the new café extension which are on display in the museum reception until the closing date of 2 May 2014.
