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’.

Challenging course with some signature holes
Best course I?ve ever played.This is a beautiful course. I didn?t really believe all the Augusta comparisons but in the approach to the 6th green I really thought I was there in Georgia. These were the trickiest greens I?ve ever played on but they were fair and took some real thought. Great course and the people running it and the clubhouse were all friendly and keen to please. I recommend wholeheartedly!
A very good challenge.Greens were superb. Smooth, slopey and very fast. Too big a challenge for my 11 handicap. On one hole I was 8ft above the hole in 3 and 5 shots later, I picked up????
Absolute GemThis is a very friendly welcoming club designed by dr Mackenzie in 1925 it has stood the test of time. A member of our party actually said it was the best course he had ever played. Greens immaculate and true. Well done to everyone at the club it is a true first class course.
Amazing course in an idillic setting.
One of the best courses I have ever playedThis is a stunning course , well looked after, fantastic greens and some of the most interesting and challenging holes around. A credit to the members, staff and committee- I will be back again soon. A couple of fairways have suffered in the earlier dry spell in 2020 but they are starting to recover now.
Lovely course, every hole a different challengeAlthough 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 playedThe 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.
