Cawder Golf Club was founded on April 13, 1933, and the Honorable Max Atiken, Lord Beaverbrook's son, was its first captain, though perhaps that pedigree isn't as important as the Cawder Course's architect: James Braid.

Braid laid out the Cawder Course at Cawder Golf Club to open in May of 1934, though it has been reconstructed several times since, first after World War II, and the second came when some of the golf course's land was reclaimed for mineral workings.

The latest layout of the Cawder Course at Cawder Golf Club began construction in 1981, with new unique feature holes and some of the classics retained from the first incarnations of the golf course and some bonus practice areas and holes.
