Detailed description of Brae Burn Country Club

Brae Burn was formed in 1964 as a member-owned club. The club is located in Purchase, New York, Westchester County. This undertaking was commenced by a group of friends from Harrison Country Club who were later joined by members of other non-equity local clubs. Brae Burn was the name that won a contest among members. The original name, Purchase Hills, was abandoned because of its similarity to another club in the area. 

Frank Duane, a long-time protege of Robert Trent Jones, was retained to design the golf course, which was ready for play in June 1965. The clubhouse was opened the following year.

The parkland layout is routed through hilly terrain with natural brooks and ponds in play on a number of holes. An old, elevated railroad bed crosses the course, adding an unusual manmade dimension as well. The undulating greens are among the most contoured and challenging in the Metropolitan area.

A course renovation completed in 2000 has enhanced the course's beauty. Architect Ken Dye's plan reconfigured bunkers, added visibility and restored much of Duane's original design.

In 2002, the local Gannett Journal News rated the fifteenth hole among the Best 18 in the area, finishing in 12th place. This dramatic, beautiful, downhill par five features lateral water hazards on both the left and right of the two-level fairway, two ponds, a prominent fairway bunker and out-of bounds all along the left side of the hole.
