Formed in 2009 by one of Henley Golf Club's Past Captains and Past President, the Association now has over 300 member clubs of the some 411 courses James Braid either designed originally or altered (of the 411, 39 are defunct and 6 were plans only).
The courses are to be found in Ireland, Wales, England and Scotland with one in New York. Brecon Golf Club members and members of all the clubs in the Association can enjoy preferential green fees at these courses, by booking in advance. A map of the courses available can be found HERE
The list is updated each year with new member clubs.
Courses either have to have been designed by Braid or redesigned or altered by him to be eligible to join. In the course of his life he was involved in designing over 350 courses as well as being the Professional at Romford for eight years and from 1904 till his death in 1950 at Walton Heath. In addition he won the Open five times, plus numerous other competitions, formed the PGA with Taylor and Vardon and is credited with inventing the 'dogleg' hole.
