The Braidwood Recreation Club, a Not-for Profit Private Outdoor Recreation Club, was Chartered on May 19, 1951 by a small group of enterprising individuals led by Mr. M.J. Donna, who was also the first President of the Club. These individuals envisioned creating a Family Recreation area out of the stripmine spoils on the outskirts of the City of Braidwood. Thanks to the hard work and initiative of those people, we now have a Private Recreation Club and 9 hole Golf Course to enjoy for many more generations to come.


Our Club enjoys many different types of wildlife; some common like White-Tailed Deer and Canadian Geese, and some not so common such as the American Bald Eagle and Flying Squirrel. It is a beautiful nature sanctuary of over 1,100 acres for you and your Family to enjoy peace and quiet.
