| Club History || |
Broad Run Golfer’s Club was built on land once known as “Como Farm.” The word “Como” is derived from a small town in Italy that was named by the land’s owner, noted agriculturist John Beale Bordley. It was on the Como Farm that Bordley conducted numerous experiments on crop rotation and maintenance of soil fertility. The multi-faceted Bordley was also a lawyer and held important judgeships in a colony whose legal profession was distinguished by such men as Samuel Chase, Thomas Jefferson and William Paca.
A stonewall located along the first tee was constructed with the original stone from the barn that was once on property. This wall was designed and placed in this location to transcend the history of the property to the starting hole of the golf course. Although it may appear as a simple stonewall, it serves as a link to the past and enables Broad Run to create a memorable experience.
