CLUB HISTORY
The foundation of Bray Golf Club at Ravenswell in July, 1897 coincided with a boom in golf development at the end of the 19th century, when a group of local gentlemen persuaded the Rt. Honorable Lord Plunkett to act as President and "spared no pains in arousing the inhabitants of Bray and surrounding district". Within two years the Club could boast of a membership of 325, which was a tremendous response for the new venture. The historic victory of Bray Golf Club in the inaugural Barton Cup competition in 1905 will always stand out as a major first in Irish golf. In the intervening years the Club has continued to enjoy success on the representative playing field while on the individual front the achievements of Walker Cup player, Keith Nolan, brought success to the Club.

The membership of Bray Golf Club remained relatively small in modern terms during it’s long residency at Ravenswell Road. Since the Club moved to it’s new 18 hole course and clubhouse in 2003 the membership has flourished. The integration of the many new members has lead to an even stronger and more vibrant Club. With the influx of new members and the recent introduction of a Junior Development Plan, the future of Bray Golf Club looks very bright.

The new 18 hole course is a magnificent USGA-standard parkland course, set in nearly 200 acres, between Bray Head and the Sugar Loaf Mountain with magnificent views of Killiney Bay and the Wicklow. Spectacular in every aspect is a phrase very appropriate to Bray Golf Club as stunning scenery frames the golf course and adds to the golfers enjoyment of the course. Mountains

OTHER INFORMATION
Bray Golf Club is a magnificent USGA-standard parkland course, set in nearly 200 acres, between Bray Head and the Sugar Loaf Mountain with magnificent views of Killiney Bay and the Wicklow Mountains. Described as spectacular in every aspect, Bray combines stunning scenery with a classic layout.

The course, which has been in play for 3 years, was designed by Des Smyth (2006 Ryder Cup Vice-Captain) and Declan Brannigan and is a striking example of modern design with old style golfing values. It provides the perfect environment for all golfers. The design strategy involved a tiered effect for the fairways, thereby negating to a large degree the effect of the sloping site on which the course was constructed. As a result a large number of the holes are relatively flat.

The course was constructed using modern construction methods and the sand based USGA specification greens provide wonderful putting surfaces all year round.

The choice of three tees on each hole provides the player with three different tests of golf. The Blue tees total 5990 metres in length, with the white measuring 5645 metres and the yellow tees 5188 metres.

Course management is essential as you plot your way around, avoiding the many bunkers and enjoying the variety of doglegs. We believe that players will particularly enjoy the five Par 3s as well as the strong finish to the course on holes 17 and 18.
