Course in great condition. Moorland type courses traditionally suffer from slow growth at the start of the season. Greens are great and the place looks very well tended. Lots of development being finished off with tracks, bridges and pathways being put in place to accommodate buggies. The Club has just taken delivery of four buggies so anyone concerned about topographical ups and downs could hire one. Personally think golf is as much about the walk and the walk can help dictate the tempo of the game and your swing.
Club has also opened a new driving range fairly recently which we were able to try out. Always interesting to see which swing you brought with you before you step onto the first tee. Great selection of holes all providing their own individual test. Some interesting carries across valleys off certain of the tees. Don't look at them too much, they'll scare the hell out of you. They are all makeable carries but bring your best driving game with you. A number of the greens have raised approaches to them requiring you to fly the ball onto them so scuffed shots tend to get punished unless you're very lucky.
Some lovely views of Riber Castle and surrounding countryside from various holes on the course.
Clubhouse grub was fine and there is a very pleasant 19th area with snooker room, as well as the main club house area/dining room. People we met were very friendly.

Course in very good condition. They only have distance markers in the middle of the fairway - you are lost for distance especially if you are a visitor. A very strange setup regarding buggies - they had four and now non is available? All the other clubs around have buggies and are sanitised with out any problem.....?

First time to the course and it's a good challenge both in terms of course and walking! The greens were in the process of being treated in preparation for the upcoming months so were a bit wobbly but that's understandable. Played with a member so only paid ?10 which was fantastic

Golfshake Team ReviewLovely course on the edge of the peak district in Derbyshire. As you would expect there are a few hills to get up and down but nothing too over the top.

Set in a fantastic part of the country the course is well laid out and well maintained with impeccable greens and course conditioning.

When I played in late July the course really was a joy to play with true fast greens. Around the green did catch me out a few times with the off green/fairway cut providing for some tricky lies.

Luckily I played with someone who knew their way around but there were a few tees and greens in close proximity which could catch visitors out and having inside knowledge helps with a few shots which are very close to tee boxes notably on the 8th/9th and the 13th, 14th & 15th.

Course well worth playing.

The course was excellent and very well maintained, dare i say manicured! A very tight course, with lots of unusual but fun features. The driving range is excellent as well, and very well lit. Superb views from all areas of the course, making good use of the spectacular surroundings, and the facilities were good, though maybe due some updating in certain places. They have almost finished the golf cart tracks when I went recently as well. Definitely returning and bringing along some friends while i'm at it! Hugely recommended.

Course is set in the picturesque hills of Matlock. Lovely views throughout the round but don't let this impact your concentration. Some very difficult par 3's and a particularly difficult par 5 which has a tight fairway leading to a small elevated green. Make sure you have a good breakfast because the undulating fairways take their toll on the legs by the time you start the back 9. Great testing course which is in fine fettle.

Lovely lay out, worth a visit !

On my mission to have played 200 courses in my life, my pal and I visited this course in October 2020 mid coronavirus issues. The greens had been under maintenance prior to our round so the channels on the greens made for some fun putts but maintenance has to be done, so I can?t knock the course for that and they reduced the fee accordingly. The course has a really interesting layout with some lovely outlooks across valleys to castles and other viewing points. Every hole different and a relatively easy course with open fairways in and around undulating hills, valleys and streams. Some great greens and reachable par 5?s. Only thing I would say is that some tee off points are very close to greens and in case crossed one another, I find it hard to hit towards people even if they are on another tee, maybe that?s just me. But the course is lovely and the food afterwards was top notch too. Watch out for the very thick trees in front of the 18th green where my mates ball still remains to this day !

Peak District Beauty

played off the tips with the club Vice Captain as his guest. Lockdown provisions fully in place but felt reassuringly safe throughout. The course is in superb condition and has had a number of cosmetic changes made to the first tee box area. Designed by Tom Williamson. Hollinwell and Longcliffe fame and the layout make great use of the available footprint. There are some jaw-dropping views and vistas available from a range of positions across the courses. The greens and surrounds were in superb order played fast and true. I know the clubhouse and the service is usually excellent however many staff are currently furloughed but my marks on based on several previous visits.this is an excellent course for the visiting golfer. Well worth a visit. The new practice range facilities are well sued but need to be booked prior to arrival.

Stunning Views

I really enjoyed my visit to Matlock.
Felt like a shorter course but the layout of some of the holes means that it is still very challenging.

The views on the back 9 in particular were superb also.

Its fairly forgiving from the tee as long as you're not crazy offline. The general condition of the course was fantastic too.

Really enjoyable round of golf.

Fabulous course

A fabulous course to play. Greens were in good condition for saying they have had a few problems.
A very tiring course, first time I have walked it in ages after having heart surgery but managed to get round.

Excellent round of golf at Matlock. The course was lovely and will be even better when the grass has grown the greens and they can be cut properly. They were still fine though.
