What the club says: Tapton Golf Course is situated on the outskirts of Chesterfield Derbyshire, it is the only municipal parkland golf course in the area boasting a full 18 hole demanding golf course, a testing 9 hole golf course and an 18 hole chip and putt challenge. Tapton Golf Course is fairly hard walking with steep gradients on a few fairways.

Fantastic Panoramic views

At this time of the year the course is not at its best, the greens are like walking on sponge and every footprint shows and leaves it?s impression which is terrible for your putting, there is usually 4 temporary greens on the back 9 which in our group we normally just agree that when you land on it the worse you can putt is 2 putts, even though the hole is the size of a bucket the approach is not good. This course has got to be the most panoramic course for miles around and in the summer is a joy to play, the greens for me have always been a problem and this is where for me you can lose to the course, if I can 2 putt I?m happy, they have now repaired the compressor which is helpful for cleaning your trolley and golf shoes the only problem now is the grid where you sit the trolley to clean it, it?s to the top, so by the time you have cleaned it and your shoes, you pull your trolley off of the grid and it?s packed out with mud again, I don?t think they have grasped the situation that when the mud is up to the top of the grid it?s needs clearing, I?ve said this before and I?ll say it again, this club is good but it could be great, no body wants to take responsibility and when you ask the staff some questions all you get is ? it?s not my job ? so unfortunately when your given that every time you just give in and don?t mention it anymore. The staff are very friendly and helpful generally but I think they lack a leader, someone needs to crack the whip so to speak.

Excellent practice course. Good for both beginners and juniors, as well as more experienced players that are wanting to sharpen their game.

Bins let the club down

The coarse is playing very well and the greens are exceptional at the moment, until it rains of course, had a fantastic back 9, shot 41, that’s definitely my best for at least 2 years, what let’s the coarse down yet again are the rubbish bins, does nobody care about this club, yes, there are a few holes where the public walk and they leave their bottles and rubbish but come on green keepers do your bloody job and keep our coarse clean.

First time and impressed

Very pretty and interesting course. Some short par fours but a lack of respect will cost you. It was a little wet underfoot in places and I will return to enjoy it even more in better conditions.

Starting to look good again

Tapton golf was in very good condition considering all the rain we have had lately, was expecting loads of puddles but there wasn't any. Even the greens have improved cwit the recent rain.
