Braintree Golf Club


Men's Section

Saturday and Sunday are the most popular playing days for 7 & 6 day members with several swindles being organised. During weekdays the 5 day members and our Seniors make good use of the course and clubhouse.

Competitions: The Men's section organise individual, pairs and team competitions throughout the year. Qualifying competitions are still held through the winter months where possible, as we are fortunate to be able to play on full greens throughout the year.

Most competitions are played over both days of the weekend with tee times bookable via the Intelligent Golf App. 

There are a number of long-standing singles and pairs knockout competitions which run throughout the summer.

We enter the four major county team competitions, namely the Thornton Cup, Leslie Wood, Norman Plum and Over 55s, and have had considerable success in these competitions over the last decade as our Honours Board shows.

Ladies Section

Tuesday is the main competition day for our Ladies when most qualifying competitions are played, particularly in the summer months. Throughout the winter months, Ladies have the opportunity to join in 9-hole organised friendly competitions.  Alternate day Honours Board competitions are also available on Saturdays for Ladies who can't play on Tuesdays, along with Saturday qualifiers for all 7 & 6 day ladies.

We have roll up groups on Thursday and Saturday mornings with tee times bookable via the Intelligent Golf App. 

Our Lady Seniors (Lady Vets) participate in the main competitions and meet informally most Fridays.

The Ladies Section organises many friendly matches with clubs in the county.

On the County scene, we put teams forward for the Bronze Shield, Silver Trophy, Harris Bowl and the Munro Foursomes, and some of our Ladies enter the individual events/knockouts.  We have had considerable success in these competitions over the last decade as our Honours Board shows (Julie Race is the Ladies Essex Senior Champion and Jenny Pease was the Ladies Essex Champion in 2007 and 2008).

Seniors Section

The seniors section welcomes all male members aged 55 and over to take part in our varied programme of competitions, interclub matches, and social events.

Regular and varied competitions are held on Mondays. These competitions are open all day but those that wish, may sign up to play and be drawn during our dedicated tee time. Bookings for this to be made the Monday previous.  These draws allow us to gather afterwards at lunch time to review, with friends what could have been, and the opportunity to present prizes. During the summer, various Honour Board, Order of Merit, single and pair knockouts competitions heightens the competitive edge within the section.

Open to all, our long standing inter club matches attract a keen following, where our team of 16 play some of the best courses in Essex and Suffolk. A great day, played with great team spirit is assured. A senior’s guest day is a summer highlight where we encourage members to invite golfing buddies to experience all that is great about our Club. Complementing regular competitions, the winter golf programme organises single and pairs knock outs and a pairs winter league comprising of differing match formats.

Our seniors section is a buzz with members enjoying both the game and social aspects. You will be assured of a warm and friendly welcome. 

Junior Section

Girls and Boys under the age 18 on January 1st are able to become Members of Braintree Golf Club. Juniors without handicaps and who are new to golf are encouraged to take lessons with a member of the professional staff once they join the section.

Once the Club Professional deems that a Junior is able to play on the course, they can get a handicap and participate in the programmes arranged by the Junior Organiser. These programmes operate on Thursdays and Saturdays from March until October and on Saturdays in the winter months.

The programmes create an environment in which Juniors can improve their skill at golf, integrate with other sections of the club, become familiar with the etiquette of golf, learn about the different formats for playing golf and, most importantly, experience the friendly enjoyment of playing golf.

Juniors take part in the range of activities offered by the junior section of the Essex Golf Union. These include entering teams into the Youth Shield, the Faldo Wedge and the Junior Foursomes. In addition, Juniors enter the Junior Opens organised by Essex Junior Golf.

The Junior Section is run by a Junior Organiser who works with the board, the club manager, the captain and professional staff to promote junior golf within the club.

The Club has a Safeguarding Policy and works within that policy to give families the confidence that their children are playing golf in a safe environment.
