What the club says: Cheshire Course (De Vere Carden Park)

The par 72 Cheshire course at 6,653 yards has hosted several Championships including the Cheshire and North Wales Open. It has impressive characteristics with a sandstone cliff and coniferous forest.

18 holes. Par 72. 6653 yards. Woodland.

The Nicklaus Course (De Vere Carden Park)

The setting of the Par 72 Nicklaus Course, with numerous hazards and spectacular holes across streams and lakes and views over the border to the Welsh Hills is outstanding. This is only the fourth course that the golfer of the 20th century turned his hand to and is described as a "thinking man's golf course" with double option holes on the 7th and 15th where golfers have to choose which fairway to attack the green from.

18 holes. Par 72. 6302 yards. Parkland with lakes.

Cheshire Course

A tough but fair course with every hole a different challenge. The tees, fairways and greens were all on superb condition. Well worth the money to play this course.

Golf, Hotel, Food brilliant - Drinks Expensive

What a weekend we had, great golf on both courses (we think the Cheshire beats the much easier Nicklaus) and we managed to avoid most of the bad weather. Watched England beat Ukraine with about 100 other golfers, enjoyed great hospitality and food. Slight downside is that even with 10% off the drinks are massively expensive which I know you expect on these golf weekends at highly rated hotels, but it always feels like golf is cheap and they make it back on the drinks. Anyway, we will certainly return as the golf was too good to ignore and the hotel was one of the best we've stayed in around the UK and we have been to a lot. The back nine on the Cheshire course was wow factor. Go there and enjoy what it has to offer, you won't be disappointed.

Not worth the price

My brother had to have a buggy, due to a knee problem. The buggies had to keep to the paths. They weren't allowed on the rough either side of the fairway. So with a buggy he did as much walking as I did with my trolley. Ridiculous

Cracking municipal

Duxbury is a great municipal course. The mix of holes are superb with some really challenging holes like the 12th to the downhill 300 yard par 4 16th that you can really have a go at.
It's a bit wet, but that's to be expected at this time of year, but it's still on full greens which is a real bonus. On top of that the greens are superb for January.
The course condition just keeps getting better & better.

Wet but still a good course

Played here on Sunday 13 Monday 14 Oct, following heavy sun and persistent showers throughout both rounds. The greens were excellent and stood the test well. Some interesting holes and the finish 14-18 offer some good challenges . Well worth a visit , I?m going back when it?s hopefully drier!

Overly long rough

course as good as usual on the whole but the semi rough was punishingly long and swallowed anything slightly off line. That's ok for tour players with ball spotters everywhere but is un-necessary for club golfers and is becoming prevalent in many courses now which makes many golfers less likely to return to play again.

Probably the best condition I’ve played the Nicklaus course in.
Greens were a bit fluffy and not great.
Good variety of holes with risk reward holes.
Nice course but slow play. We were a 2ball and it took us 4.5 hours because of groups in front. Don’t expect a quick round.
I had a free round so value was great but I don’t think I would pay £45 for a round of golf here on a Sunday.

Superb

The course is in superb condition, greens are fast & true, the bunkers are good, overall fantastic condition.
A well laid out track, bunker placing to make you think in a couple of places, tree lined which brings a couple of fairways in quite tight.
I enjoyed the while course, but I thought the run of holes from 14 to 18 were superb, up & down hill with some great contouring & a superb view of the 18th tee.
All the greens staff were great, very friendly & helpful. one even pointed out where I'd gone to the wrong hole.
2 negatives: The pro in the shop could have been a bit happier, there was no greeting or advice or directions on where to go.
Signage on the course in a couple of places, 2nd through to 3rd & 15th to 16th in particular.
