Location Oakville, Ontario Canada
Type sports museum

The Canadian Golf Hall of Fame and Museum is a museum and hall of fame covering the history of the game of golf in Canada, and celebrating the careers and accomplishments of the most significant contributors to the game in that country. Operated by Golf Canada (governed by the Royal Canadian Golf Association), the governing body of golf in Canada, it is located on the grounds of Glen Abbey Golf Course in Oakville, Ontario, Canada, and is composed of an exhibit space (designed around 18 display spaces or 'holes'), a golf-related research library, and archives (containing both historical materials and the corporate records of the RCGA).

The Canadian Golf Hall of Fame is affiliated with the Canadian Museums Association, the Canadian Heritage Information Network, the International Sports Heritage Association, the Canadian Association for Sports Heritage, the Ontario Museum Association, and the Virtual Museum of Canada.


Inductees in the hall of fame are divided into three categories: professional players, amateur players and builders - this last being those who have contributed to the development and success of the game in some exceptional fashion, whether it be primarily as coaches, superintendents, golf course architects, historians, or any other capacity.
