Assistant Golf Professional: Brantford Golf & Country Club - Brantford, ON

Historic, Breathtaking and Smart…  All of those words could be used to describe Brantford Golf and Country Club, one of Canada’s most venerated golf courses.

With a stately modern clubhouse and a timeless golf course designed by Nicol Thompson and his brother Stanley, Canada’s greatest golf architect, Brantford has aged to near perfection. The mix of holes offers variety and nuance not regularly seen on other classics. That’s probably why, nearly a century after the firm of Thompson, Cumming and Thompson laid out the initial holes, it remains one of Canada’s golfing jewels.

“I think Brantford is spectacular—certainly among the twenty best courses in the province,” writes golf course critic Marc Saltzman.

“In my opinion Brantford has the best set of par threes in Ontario,” says Ian Andrew, a member of the American Society of Golf Architects.

In the words of Alena Sharp, an LPGA player who learned the game at Brantford, the course “has everything.”
