Association of James Braid Courses update

February 18, 2016

Since this time last year, 12 new clubs have joined the Association of James Braid Courses – Blanagask, Blackburn, Cochrane Castle, Galashiels, Grim's Dyke, Hexham, Middlesburgh, The Musselburgh, Porthmadog, Tynemouth, Willesley Park and Aberfeldy. During the year, after some discussions, it was discovered and agreed that Braid had a hand in designing Aberfeldy, a fact unknown to most until now.

In his lifetime James Braid designed, in whole or in part, some 412 courses, 32 of which are no more and 6 were plans only and never built. Now with over three hundred courses members of the Association, some 150,000 members of these courses can play at the other member clubs for a special green fee, hopefully increasing awareness of his work and providing extra income to the clubs who have joined.

Each member has access to a map and a mobile app available free through the home of the Association, Henley Golf Club (Braid 1907) www.henleygc.com or www.sites.google.com/site/ajbmap/

To become a member, courses have to be either, designed, redesigned or altered by Braid. As well as designing courses, he was the Professional at Walton Heath from 1904 till his death in 1950, won the Open five times, plus numerous other competitions and along with Vardon and Taylor formed the P.G.A.
