ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- The World Golf Hall of Fame is now offering a brand-new, museum-wide audio tour, "Voices from the Hall," featuring over two-and-a-half hours of exclusive content from more than 35 Hall of Fame members, giving visitors an even more comprehensive experience while at the museum.

Through a small Orpheus audio guide device, visitors can experience more than 175 numbered stops within the museum, highlighting personal stories and anecdotes from Hall of Fame members that have been collected over the last 10 years the Hall of Fame has been in St. Augustine. From Arnold Palmer recounting stories with "Ike," Byron Nelson speaking about how he turned professional, to Tommy Bolt talking about his temper and Ben Crenshaw talking about Harvey Penick and his emotional Masters win, the tour will further enhance each guest's encounter with the game's greatest players and contributors. In addition, many other Hall of Fame members including Pete Dye, Sandra Haynie, Hale Irwin, Tony Jacklin, Carol Mann, Larry Nelson, Curtis Strange and more, can be heard giving background on specific items in their lockers at the Hall of Fame.

"Visitors will love stepping into the stories and personal accounts straight from the World Golf Hall of Fame members and other notable golf figures and historians heard on 'Voices from the Hall'," said Jack Peter, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of the World Golf Hall of Fame. "We are certain this audio tour will add great value to each guest's visit and will leave them with even more information and special details they can only get here at the Hall."

"Voices from the Hall" has been in development for more than five years and will continue to expand over the years as the Hall welcomes new inductees.

A "Voices from the Hall" audio guide may be added to regular World Golf Hall of Fame admission for $3 (for one device) or $5 (for two devices). Admission to the Hall of Fame is $20.50 for adults (with discounts for children, military, seniors and students) and also includes one IMAX film and a round on the Hall's 18-hole, natural grass putting course.
