Golf Course Review

Baildon Golf Club on the moorland of Baildon Common was laid out by Old Tom Morris in 1891. Of adequate length in 1891 being played with gutties and hickories, it was eventually lengthened by James Braid in 1924.

One of the unique characteristics of the course are grass hollows. 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. The same technique was used by James Braid and Herbert Fowler at Yelverton Golf Club.

The Old Tom Morris content that remains today at Baildon Golf Club is:

  • Hole 2 (Lengthened)
  • Hole 3 Greensite
  • Hole 4 (Former 7th & 8th combined)
  • Hole 5 Original
  • Hole 6 Original
  • Hole 15 Greensite
  • Hole 16 (Shortened)

The remainder of the course is the work of James Braid.
