What the club says: Situated in Buxton, Cavendish was opened in 1925 and designed Dr Alister MacKenzie, whose list of courses includes the iconic Augusta National, home of the Masters. Cavendish is regarded by experts to be MacKenzie’s ‘Inspiration for Augusta’ and it’s easy to see why. With undulating fairways, sloping greens and well thought out hazards, there are many holes at Cavendish that definitely mirror many of those found at Augusta National.

Cavendish has been voted as a Top 100 UK Golf course for the past 4 years, and was voted as a Top 100 Fun Course to play in 2018. Cavendish is thought by many to be quite possibly the best layout in the world under 6000 yards, offering ‘sheer golfing enjoyment’.

Avoid until coursework finishes

I had the misfortune to book through playmore golf only to find out that the 18 holes was more like 13. Parts of The course are like a building site just at the moment, rest is fairly muddy with shortened holes , forward winter matts and several winter greens on the remaining holes that are open . This course was on my must play list but very disappointing experience today and certainly not a good advert for a Top 100 England course . Personally I do not think it should be open to visitors at moment.
I’m sure it’s completely different in Summer but one to avoid until course is fully operational again. To be fair the club refunded the green fee cost but to be honest it was a waste of a day out in January when I could have had a far better game somewhere else.

Fantastic Course

We went out in a four ball and everyone of had such a great experience, the course is in a splendid condition and the greens were perfectly kept although challenging to read.

Great course & under 6k yrds

Definitely a visit but not in winter! Very hilly and greens were very tricky. Definitely an Augusta feeling on the greens. Out of position on the greens means a 3-putt!! Great views around the Peak district.

Stunning Course in a Stunning Location

I couldn't fault anything anything about my first time at Cavendish. The greens, tees and fairways are all as good you'll find, and there's not a single weak hole in the round. I tried deciding what my favourite hole was but there were simply too many to choose from.

The greens are frequently raised, and the 14th especially is pretty mean about rejecting your ball if you find the front part of the green. The course isn't long, but the greens do their best to protect against good scores.

It's certainly not a flat course, so you may want to consider a buggy if you struggle on undulating courses.

There was also a very pleasant welcome in the pro shop and the clubhouse, Seriously, if you're in the area and thinking about giving Cavendish a go, it's definitely worth playing.

(Round played: Aug 2021 - Score: 108 Handicap: 24.2)

Totally enjoyable day out #GolfWeek

Highlights: great track not long but a thinkers track, welcome warm up for first 3 holes before the mind games start. a lot of stunning holes to be found. place your ball and build a score NO big hitting really required. pro shop lads very welcoming and overall a lovely club. 100% worth the dreadful roads to get there.

Practice area is near the 8th / 12th tee boxes (bit of a treck) but they have 2 warm up nets for that stiff back due to a stop start drive.

One downside £1.50 for a SPOON of Nescafe and hot water :-( I guess if that's the only issue, it's worth the effort :-) build a dual carriageway FAST.
