About the Club

Bradley Hall Golf Club was the dream of a handful of men living in the Holywell Green and Stainland area.  The dream became reality when, in July 1906 they started playing on a small piece of rented land near to the present course.  This soon proved inadequate and, on the 1st February 1907 a lease on 43 acres adjoining the present course became effective and the club was born.  Alex Herd, the Huddersfield professional and former Open champion, advised on the layout of the new nine hole course.

By 1909 a wooden clubhouse had been built on the hillside overlooking the course.

In 1922 an opportunity presented itself to acquire, from Lord Mexborough, the lease on the run-down Bradley Hall together with over 100 acres of land.

It was an opportunity not to be missed.  Four thousand pounds was spent converting the old house into a magnificent clubhouse and laying out a new 18 hole course.

George Franks, foreman for many years to the great golf course architect, Dr. Alister MacKenzie, was appointed to design and build the new course and after completion in 1924 he remained at Bradley Hall for another two years acting as professional/greenkeeper, although he was never  registered with the PGA.

The new club was first opened with a grand dinner and smoking concert in January, 1924 and was officially opened by Lord Mexborough in July, the same year. 

Many changes have been made since those early days, not least in the early 70’s when the mock Elizabethan façade was taken down and the clubhouse extended.

Perhaps the most significant change came in the 1980’s when the members bought the club from Methley Estates, executors of Lord Mexborough who had died some time previously.

The club has enjoyed several honours with three members being chosen to represent Yorkshire over the years.  In the 1930’s Harold S. Emsley represented his county on six occasions, as did Derek Pilling in the 1960’s.  In more recent times Andrew Whitworth was a great ambassador for the club representing Yorkshire no fewer than 36 times of which he won thirty-three.

Bradley Hall Golf Club faces the future with confidence as one of the premier clubs in the district.
