What the club says: Cavendish, which opened in 1925, was designed by Dr Alister MacKenzie, and unlike many early courses has not been altered in response to today’s pressures. At 5721 yds off the medal tees, the course remains shorter than many, yet still fulfils MacKenzie's belief that length has nothing to do with the quality of a hole.

Lovely course, every hole a different challenge

Although this course is a par 68, it certainly is one to visit and just see the beauty of its layout. Some very challenging holes which need precise and long tee off's to play to GIR. Beautiful scenery and the natural features which run through the course just add to the enjoyment. The course is in excellent conditions and the staff were really helpful considering the COVID-19 conditions making it more difficult to use all the facilities. If you want a beautiful course, with some really different holes, get it on your list.

Best course I've played

The course is set in the Buxton hills which has amazing scenery. The course itself is well maintained and in excellent condition. You can never know what weather conditions you will face until you are there on the 1st tee.
Great course

Charming, memorable, friendly

My brother and I played Cavendish GC last autumn - we're both connoisseurs of a good golf course, and Cavendish had been on my hit list for some time (my bro was already raving about it). We got rained off after seven holes, and I know the best was yet to come. BUT those first seven holes .. bliss! Despite the rain, I loved every one of them, and what's more the welcome in the pro shop was wonderful, and the hospitality inside the club was magnificent. What a beautiful, special place. Hugely recommended, and I can't wait to go back in better weather :-)

Great course. The club shop let us go out early no probs, and are always helpful. The course was in immense condition for early Jan, with only two temps. Regular greens were excellent and scary at times, some very tricky reads. Defo one of the most interesting and fun courses about. For a shortish course it plays very long, finally reached the 5th in 2 today! Highly recommended if 120 acres of up and down parkland zzzzz golf isn’t your bag. Top class.

Possibly the best value for money course in the country

An unbelievable course that was set up brilliantly. The work that has been done in the past 12 months is outstanding and has transformed this good course into a great club. The food was fantastic and a far sight better than it had been in previous years due to a new catering team. I would definitely recommend playing this course and I am going to join as a member, I enjoyed it that much.

Outstanding golf course

This golf course truly is outstanding in its lay out, different aspects, beautiful vista's and the hard work the ground staff and patrons provide to keeping the course in such an excellent condition. It's a course I will be back to play over and over again.

Better than more famous Golf Courses

Played on Sunday morning 14-04. Booked an early tee online and had a small delay due to course thawing out which meant we sampled the hot drinks available in the friendly clubhouse. We?d only played 2 holes when we realised we were playing somewhere special.
A fabulous course which just got better.
Difficult to single out one hole as so many were fantastic- Every par 3, 3rd,5th,6th,9th,10th,11th and not forgetting the fabulous18th.
Members must pinch themselves every week at how blessed they are to play this fantastic course. Greens superb and afterwards really reasonably priced food in the bar- can?t wait to get back..
