Cockermouth Golf Club is situated 3 miles east of Cockermouth. You are surrounded by excellent views including Skiddaw, the Lorton Fells, Scotland and even, weather permitting, the Isle of Man.
James Braid (6 February 1870 – 27 November 1950) was a member of the Great Triumvirate alongside Harry Vardon and John Henry Taylor. He won The Open Championship five times. He was also a renowned golf course architect. Cockermouth Golf Course is among his designs along with the likes of the “King’s Course” and the “Queen’s Course” at Gleneagles, and the 1926 remodelling of Carnoustie Golf Links for The Open Championship that year.
Braid set the standard in golf course design that the rest of the world would follow. He was a pioneer in his field and his legacy lives on in over 200 courses across Scotland and the UK. To fully understand why James Braid is considered one of the finest golf course designers of all time, you simply have to see his work for yourself.
