At A Glance

Baildon Golf Club was laid out by Old Tom Morris in 1891, it is situated on the moorland of Baildon Common. It was a short course that was eventually lengthened by James Braid in 1924.

From the 13th to 19th centuries, the common had been mined for coal. The bell pits left behind form the grass hollows used to full effect today.

Robert Kroeger, an Old Tom Morris expert, regards the 2nd hole as one of the best Old Tom Morris holes in Great Britain.
