ABOUT CRAG BURN
Membership at Crag Burn is not required. Crag Burn is exclusively a golf club (no pool or tennis) with dining available during the golf season for lunch and weekend dinners. The Club offers golf memberships as well as house memberships. Crag Burn is closed in the off season.
In 1929, Frank H. Goodyear Jr., a prominent Buffalonian and his wife, Dorothy Knox, began construction on a summer estate in East Aurora called Crag Burn. The name gets its origins from the Scottish words "Crag,” meaning “top of the bluff,” and “Burn,” meaning “small stream,” an apt description of this beautiful property. An elaborate English Style house with more than 60 rooms was designed by John Russell Pope in collaboration with Frederick Law Olmstead and built on 113 acres on North Davis Road. Across the road, 190 acres of grounds included magnificent stables, service buildings, polo fields, and bridle paths.
By the late 1960s, the polo fields and bridle paths near the estate’s stable were seeing very little use. The horses had long been sold, and the fields had begun to return to nature. Dorothy Knox Goodyear’s son Bobby and son-in-law, Clint Wyckoff, had the idea to turn a 190-acre parcel into a golf course, a fitting use for the beautiful landscape and existing structures. Dorothy gave the property to the pair in 1969, and they hired prominent American golf course architect and family friend, Robert Trent Jones Sr., to design the course.
Bobby, his sister Dottie, her husband Clint, and their sons Peter, Ranny, and Kevin – all avid golfers – recruited friends and family to help fund the construction of a club where “a group of friends could play golf.” This integral group of early supporters, roughly 50 people in all, became the club’s founding members.
Today, Crag Burn reflects the original vision of its founders as a club is simply a place where good friends can gather and play golf on one of the most challenging and beautiful courses designed.
Membership at Crag Burn is an exclusive ticket to play on one of the top golf courses in New York. Crag Burn Golf Club offers an 18 hole championship golf course designed by renowned architect Robert Trent Jones, 12 acre practice facility and a distinguished bar and restaurant. Membership at Crag Burn is by invitation only. It is required that all prospective members have a current Crag Burn member in good standing who may serve as a sponsor to begin the membership invitation process.
