Just over 100 years ago the famous James Braid laid out the 18 holes that we are privileged to play today. Some lengthening and tightening has taken place since then; and with the recent addition of a 6-hole practice course and a managed range the golf course has continually been kept up-to-date.
The original Clubhouse, extended several times, retains a traditional golf club feel yet caters well for modern needs in a less formal style than of old.
Our centenary year, in 2007, saw the club celebrate in style, our centenary pages are dedicated to those celebrations and a great collection of resources from 2007 and the previous 100 years are to be found by following the link to Centenary Home Page opposite. Several short Centenary-year videos and other memorabilia are accessible on the link including an audiovisual story of Colchester Golf Club’s first 100 years. Centenary Books are still available at £10 from the Secretary’s office.
