The USGA Museum, currently located adjacent to the USGA Headquarters, has long been a mecca for those passionate about the game. Some 20,000 avid golfers make the pilgrimage to the Somerset Hills each year to visit the museum.
This elegant brick three story Georgian colonial mansion, designed in 1919 by John Russell Pope, has been home to the USGA Headquarters & Museum since 1972.
"Our biggest hurdle is people understanding that we exist and letting them know where we are," said museum director Rand Jerris. "People say 'Cooperstown' and everybody knows it's the baseball Hall of Fame. We are in many ways the Cooperstown of golf. We want people to know where Far Hills is and what theUSGA is about." “I read in a newspaper article a writer wrote that we are trying to be the Cooperstown of golf. Given the fact that we were first, we prefer to think that Cooperstown is trying to be the Far Hills of baseball.”
