What the club says: Buxton & High Peak Golf Club, formed in 1887 and designed by J. Morris, is the oldest club in Derbyshire. The course overlooks the old Roman spa town with superb views over the Peak District National Park. The course is based on free draining limestone, and is certainly one of the most consistently playable in the area. Often influenced by the prevailing winds, the 5,997 yard par 69 course provides members and visitors with a challenging and enjoyable test of golf. Although set some 1100 feet above sea level, the course is not subjected to arduous hill climbs. The Clubhouse overlooks the first and eighteenth fairways and provides a bar, lounge and excellent catering facilities with a friendly and welcoming atmosphere.

A Mixed Bag

great course, stradding the busy A6, which seriously helps you focus on blocking out noise! Next time anyone moans when you undo the velcro on your glove as they are about to putt tell them to go and play here!!!! A gem of a course though, fairways in great nick as were the tricky greens. holes 4, 5 and 6 seem to have been plucked from an Ayrshire links course and dropped in amongst the parkland and then on hole 7 it's back to parkland. Some very open fairways and some very tight. All in all a great course and all for a tenner on a Thursday!!!!!

Enjoyable and challenging course

Don'tt be fooled by the less than 6000 yards and par 69 stats of this course. The undulating fairways, quarry hazards (explained to me by the Pro before I set out), blind shot requirements, dog legs and tricky par 3's will certainly test your skill. The course is maintained to a very high standard and sloping, tiered greens will definitely test your putting but run true and fair. A thoroughly enjoyable round of golf with plenty of variety to challenge your game.

'Enjoyable But Tough'

Played this course in a competition last week and although it was tough due to the wind and ridiculous pin placements it was a good day.
The course was in great condition considering the recent wet weather and the greens although very challenging due to the pin placements were very good.
It was the first time that I had played the course and it is one that you need to plot your way around with lots of hidden surprises if you just decide to hit driver all day.
Lots of severe slopes on the greens make it essential to be on the right side of the hole otherwise you will be putting through the fringe from off the putting surface.
If a course planner is available then I would suggest that you invest in one !
In summary this is a course that makes you think and although it is not ridiculously long it is a challenge with some well protected par three holes and quite a few par fours that are well over 400 yards and into a strong wind.
Good course and would recommend.

Having driven over 60 miles disappointing to find no staff on duty to get a coffee or bacon roll, no apologies from a rather grumpy lady when we asked about a coffee.
Having said that the course was in a very good state and we would go back again.

Great course to play if your visiting the area as we were. A good test of golf for everyone. We were a bit concerned as the day before we were due to play it rained heavy all day. Went out the next day expecting it to be very wet but could not believe how quickly the course had drained there wasn't a puddle to be seen anywhere! £10 a round on a Thursday was an absolute bargain!
