St. Augustine, Fla., (March 28, 2011) -- The World Golf Hall of Fame & Museum is commemorating the 25th anniversary of Jack Nicklaus' historic 1986 Masters victory with two special admission offers.
During The Masters from April 7-10, all full price adult admission tickets to the World Golf Hall of Fame will be 25 percent off. And every guest who was born in 1986 will receive free admission.
Guests will be also able to participate in a variety of Masters-related activities at the Hall of Fame during the tournament. Every visitor will receive a self-guided walking tour of the extensive Masters memorabilia in the museum, including items like Vijay Singh's trophy from his 2000 Masters victory, the clubs that Jose Maria Olazabal used when he became the first player to win the Masters using metal woods in 1994 and the original green jacket of Masters co-founder Clifford Roberts.
Visitors in the Hall of Fame won't miss the action because the broadcast will be carried live in the museum, in the Bob Hope Theater and in Shell Hall. The Hall of Fame is also taking a page from The Masters by selling pimento cheese sandwiches.
"The Masters is a special event and a special time of year and we're thrilled to be able to offer our guests a discounted admission," said Jack Peter, World Golf Hall of Fame Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. "We are excited to honor Jack Nicklaus' incredible accomplishment in 1986 and look forward to golf fans celebrating with us at the museum."
