James Braid

The new course (18 holes) was designed by the famous James Braid, and originally opened on the 21st May 1925 by club captain R.B. (Bruce) Johnston.

Later that day, Braid, J.H. Taylor, C.A. Whitcombe and A.G. Havers played an exhibition match.

Few changes have been made to Braid's layout. However, there have been major changes to the par and, recently, the stroke index of several holes. The course is also much more wooded now, and there are fewer bunkers.

The club's first professional was Harry H. Tuck, others have included Stan Stenhouse, 1947-1977, Mike Grantham 1977-1987, David Jagger. from 1987 – 2013 and now the present day director of golf is Aaron Pheasant who we hope will be with us for many years.
