Women Benefit From Country Clubs Too…
Harry Pedrick, General Manager / Club President
The Brandywine Country Club, located in historic Brandywine Valley, was founded September 10, 1945. Its beginnings were the shared idea of a number of prominent area businessmen. Meeting regularly in a downtown Wilmington storefront, these founding members discussed a common concern-there increasing need for a quality golf course. The obvious solution quickly became a unanimous decision to form their own club and build a new golf course. Drawing on the support of friends and well wishers, the planners purchased land and a three-bedroom farmhouse on Route 202. In 1985, the old clubhouse and land adjacent to Route 202 was sold and a new clubhouse was built on Shipley Road. For sixty-five years, the Brandywine Country Club has enjoyed an outstanding reputation for its first-rate golf course and inviting atmosphere. Today that tradition of excellence and hospitality continues.
