THE JAMES BRAID CONNECTION
A well known golfer in the 1920’s and course designer of many prestige courses, James Braid designed the Accrington course in 1928. We are very honoured to have as a Lady member, Lil Dykes (Lady Captain Elect 2018), the great grand-daughter of James Braid. She is an excellent golfer who only took up the game 10 years ago in her later years, after a successful international athletics career. Lil’s handicap is now down to 10. Watch this space –it must be in the genes!
