Brantford Golf & Country Club dates back to the 1870s, but the golf course we play today is courtesy of Brantford’s Head Professional and Stanley Thompson’s brother Nicol in 1919. The property itself is quite dramatic, starting up in the flats above Grand River before diving into the bottom of the valley on the 3rd & 4th hole.

Most of the golf course itself stays well below the height of the clubhouse, though many of the highlights come when the routing works itself into the hillside. The golf course really hits its stride starting at the par 4, 7th working its way back uphill, making way for the 8th, 9th, and 10th to play in the hillside before the 11th falls off.

Rod Whitman & Keith Cutten’s upcoming work will be the firm’s introduction to Ontario, surely breathing life into this venerable old school layout.
