You likely would have dealt with Mr John Freeman who has been the pro at Broadway since 1964. His son now runs the show, but the elder Freeman still works as an assistant professional and I think he is not far off tracking down 80.

The 4th, another reachable par 5 and again with a sting in the tail of trouble lurking down right the entire length of the hole. The following four holes play more around the edge of the hill and essentially make up the bulk of Broadway's best holes. The first of this wonderful succession of holes is a par 3 heading straight for Broadway in the valley.
The sixth turns back and plays over marvelous ground very similar to links. With local knowledge, it is best to play to the top of the hill on the right rather than to the fairway.
I can't stress how much shots leak left. The photos flatten everything to a huge degree.
This photo from the rear of the green gives a much more accurate picture of the slopes.
#7, another terrific hole using the hard slopes to great effect. At just over 300 yards, flat bellies having a go will need to take great care with the draw.
If one can scoot past a slight ridge he can drive the flat just short of the green-side bunkers.
So many clubs leave the best angles into greens as rough.
The second short hole is another butt-clenching. The 8th plays a bit uphill to a narrow green with little room to miss left. At under 120 yards the shot isn't that difficult sans wind. Although the front flag doesn't look a particularly inviting shot, it is far easier than a back hole location.
In this shot, the length of the green is revealed. Playing to the very back tier requires a quality of game I rarely encounter. Notice the bunker now has a roll-over face...its far better looking to my eye. Hopefully all the bunkers will get the same treatment.
We now head to the flatter section of the hill for the ninth. There is much more room to open the shoulders off the tee, but the long and uphill approach is much more exacting than the previous holes. The green, like most on the front is very interesting. From behind the green looking west.
Unfortunately, the back nine at Broadway is far less compelling than the front nine. Too many holes are marred by senseless bunkering or a general lack of detail. That said, there are a few holes which stand out as excellent. Like Stratford on Avon GC, I don't think the course as a whole warrants much travel and that is despite what has to be one of the best sets of short holes which NEVER gets a mention. However, because the club offers nine hole rates, I am going to break with convention and recommend one play Broadway on the strength of treating the course like a nine holer. Skip the back and play the front twice or thrice...it is that good! 2016
