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.



Most Helpful Review

Played here with some pals on a glorious October afternoon, the course is a absolute delight first three holes are relatively straightforward but the greens are a sign of things to come ahead, after that the course \opens up with some stunning scenery and views over the peaks. Some great elevated Ts and I think the par 3s are some of best short holes i have played anywhere, 10 and 11 are stunners also The course is not overly long but plays longer than its yardage if you keep the ball in plays a good score can be had. All in all a magnificent course and at \£20 during the weekend amazing value. My new absolute favourite course\\Hc 11 shot 80 \ - Oct 4 2015

Beautiful
Lovely course; great green complexes and surfaces. It has some magic holes as you play around the fantastic scenery of the steep sided hills around you. There are a few streams too; which add to the scenery. I have played 27 of the top 100 courses in England so far and this is my favourite.

Manchester rated 5 out of 5 - Jul 31 2017

An absolute gem
Played in an open AMAM and it was simply stunning. The greens are a challenge and becoming legendary - fast, true and wickedly undulating, get the wrong side and you are stuffed. The fairways are very well shaped and defined and the rough will correctly punish a wild shot.
Friendly pro shop reception, the starter was very welcoming, we spoke to a number of other groups who were all shaking their heads at the challenging putting whilst thoroughly enjoying themselves. Had a great pint and a good meal in the bar that is part way through a refurbishment that has brought a more modern feel to the club and definitely a step forward.
One of the rare courses you play and remember every hole.
