The Australasian Golf Museum was instigated by legendary Tasmanian golfer Peter Toogood.

"Peter has been collecting a range of significant golf memorabilia throughout his acclaimed golfing career. Together with the Bothwell community and the Tasmanian Museum & Art Gallery, Peter was able to display his collection in Bothwell's historic sandstone school house, and not far from the Ratho Golf Links, Australia's Oldest Golf Course.

"Over time the Museum acquired further collections and items of interest, to now showcase Australia's largest golfing collection and educate visitors from all over the world." - Read more at the Australasian Golf Museum webiste, linked above.

Point of interest: Golf was banned in Scotland in 1457, along with football and "uthir unprofitable sports". See Golf Museum website link above.
