Website Brooklawn Country Club
Coming off another Championship year that saw the club host its 5th USGA Championship, the 2021 U.S. Senior Women's Open won by Annika Sorenstam. Brooklawn has a strong tradition of giving back to the game through our hosting of local and state championships such as the Connecticut Open and has been the site of numerous amateur and professional championships including the 1974 USGA Junior Amateur Championship, the 1979 U.S. Women’s Open, the 1987 U.S. Senior Open and the 2003 USGA Girls' Championship.Brooklawn was one of the first dozen or so clubs to join the United States Golf Association in 1896. The original golf course was a nine-hole layout on what was then rolling farmland. In 1929, A. W. Tillinghast, one of history’s premier golf architects who also designed, among others, the courses at Winged Foot Golf Club, Baltusrol Golf Club, Bethpage State Park and Quaker Ridge Golf Club, redesigned the course into its present form. Over the years, very thoughtful changes have been made with the guidance of course architect, Ron Forse, who specializes in Tillinghast designs. The intent has been to assure that we maintain the integrity of what Tillinghast built, but to also recognize that the modern game is different and certain adaptations are necessary.The Club celebrated its 125th anniversary in 2020, Brooklawn Country Club was conceived as a private family club. Rich in history, Brooklawn offers a magnificent clubhouse, excellent dining and social programs as well as traditional country club sports such as golf, tennis, paddle, swimming and bowling.
