The 1895 Club concept was instigated by three Edinburgh-based clubs whose centenary year coincided with each other. Enquiries were sent out to other 1895 centenary clubs throughout the country inviting their participation. After some correspondence, representatives of 19 clubs attended a meeting at Handsworth Golf Club in Birmingham where some fine tuning was made, and agreement reached to constitute the 1895 Club. Bush Hill Park later joined the group, whose purpose is to foster relationships and offer reciprocal courtesy arrangements between members of participating clubs.
Members should make their own arrangements with the Club they wish to visit by letter or phone, with the requisite notice.
Members should take with them a letter of introduction confirming their membership of Bush Hill Park and current handicap index, which is available from the Office.
For visits to take place home Clubs should be separated by 75 miles.
Some Clubs impose limits on courtesies after which green fees are charged.

James Braid (6 February 1870 – 27 November 1950) was a Scottish professional golfer, five-time the winner of The Open Golf Championship, and a prolific golf course architect. There are thought to be some 406 courses either designed originally or altered by James Braid. His courses can be found not just in the UK but all over the world, and some notables include Aberdovey, Gleneagles, Royal Mussleburgh, Royal Blackheath, Southport and Ainsdale, as well as The St. Andrews Golf Club in New York!
The Association of James Braid Courses now has 296 member clubs. Although Bush Hill Park was originally designed by Harry Vardon, Braid visited to advise on changes to the course. Bush Hill Park Golf Club members and members of all the clubs in the Association can enjoy preferential green fees at these courses by booking in advance.
As a member of Bush Hill Park Golf Club you are also a member of Middlesex Golf and England Golf. The Middlesex County Card Scheme enables members of Affiliated Clubs to play at other courses within Middlesex and most other English Counties at reduced green fee rates.
The Counties in the scheme comprise Bedfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Cambridgeshire, Cheshire, Cumbria, Derbyshire, Devon, Dorset, Durham, Essex, Gloucestershire, Hampshire, Hertfordshire, Kent, Lancashire, Leicestershire & Rutland, Middlesex, Northamptonshire, Northumberland, Nottinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Shropshire and Herefordshire, Somerset, Staffordshire, Surrey, Sussex, Warwickshire, Wiltshire, Worcestershire and Yorkshire. Currently, those County Unions have over 1300 clubs that host County Card Members. All of these courses will be available to Middlesex County Card Members.
Your County Card can be collected from either the Prol Shop or the Club Office.

We have local reciprocal arrangements with three local North London clubs; Hendon, Mill Hill, and North Middlesex, which offer four courtesy rounds per club per year. Tee reservations are at the discretion of each Club and bookings should be made in advance by contacting their respective Pro Shop. You will be asked to provide proof of membership when visiting - your CDH number or Middlesex Golf Union County Card is sufficient for this purpose.
