The Story

BraeBurn was originally designed by John Bredemus in 1931 and was extensively reworked in 1991 to address flooding issues.  It was the 1991 project that was able to add some significant elevation changes to the course, which makes it unique to the Houston area.  The legendary Hall of Fame golfer and three-time Masters Champion Jimmy Demaret was one of the club’s early professionals.

While keeping the same basic routing of the course, TDA is rebuilding and redesigning the entire course in 2021 to make better use of the elevations created in the 1991 flood control project, primarily by pulling the relatively isolated low areas back into the course, and using the raised areas in a more naturalistic way.
