Brough, England

Founded in 1893, Brough Golf Club began with a 9-hole course and an old wooden “Monkey House” as a clubhouse. More land was made available in 1905 to allow an 18-hole layout to be fashioned. Further land acquisitions allowed further course improvements in 1933 and 1955.

The club has no record of James Braid being involved in course improvements at the club but Braid’s ledger book contains an entry for Brough in 1925 with income recorded as £13-9-0 and expenses as £4-19-0 so it would be fair to say he offered advice, even though it may not have been acted upon.

The local Hull Daily Mail newspaper reported in March of the following year that “much of the funds of the club has been put to the practical means of constructing a large number of new bunkers… every hole is well guarded” which certainly indicates Braid was involved, even if he wasn’t mentioned.

Today, this parkland course extends to just over 6,000 yards from the back tees, playing to a par of 68; out in 33 then back in 35. There’s only one par five on the scorecard, at the slightly left doglegged 533-yard 10th, and the pick of the par threes is the shortest, at the 146-yard 6th hole.

The 17th is another interesting short hole, with a narrow drainage ditch zigzagging down the centre of the fairway before veering to the left of the green. The tee box for the 18th is located behind this putting surface then the fairway kinks left on its way to the home green in the southwest corner of the property.

Brough hosted the PGA Seniors Championship in 1990, when Brian Waites won the first of his two titles. The club also staged the Girls’ Amateur Championship in 2001, with Clare Queen from Scotland beating her Spanish opponent 1 up in the final.
