After an extensive search, the Houston CPCU Chapter has found a new home at Brae Burn Country Club and returns to its traditional meetings on the third Tuesday of the month.  Founded in 1926, BraeBurn is the fourth oldest club in Houston and the golf course was designed by famed Golden Age golf course architect John Bredemus and from 1936 1941, BraeBurn was the home of world golf Hall of Famer and three times Masters Champion, Houstonian Jimmy Demaret.  In 1942, Bob Hope and Bing Crosby played at the course in a benefit for the war effort. BraeBurn served as the host site for the 1950 Houston Open (won by Dr. Gary Middlecoff), the 1952 LPGA Houston Weathervane (won by Betsy Rawls, who defeated Babe Zaharius by three strokes), the 1954 NCAA National Championship (won by SMU), and the 1995 Texas State Amateur (won by Brad Elder).  In 2020, BraeBurn members commissioned Tripp Davis & Associates to enhance the design, and playability of this venerable gem. Davis’ focus was to restore this classic parkland layout to its Golden Age heritage, and his success was rewarded with Golf, Inc.’s 2022 award for First Place Renovation of the Year. We look forward to welcoming chapter members and guests to enjoy this new venue as we network with our industry colleagues as well as earn continuing education credits.
