Golf course in excellent condition with great views of Chesterfield from some Tees. The course though is quite underlating so if you have problems walking like me then a buggy is essential. Less than 6,000 yds long this course is great for the high handicappers.

Course is playing well

Course is looking really good, worth playing now, some of the greens are a little boggy, you can feel the ground squelching under your feet, course does look great though.

Worth a visit

Nice course, some very interesting holes, plenty of short par4's but you have to be spot on. Friendly and pace of play slow.

Nice course

The 9 hole course is a testing course for learners, just what we need to improve. On my las visit it was quite windy and parts of the course were waterlogged, course not closed often, you have to decide if the course will be playable. I would rate the course good to fair

A step-up from Beauchief

Longer and more challenging than Beauchief but a rewarding course with great views of the Chesterfield countryside. Really well designed course.

Interesting fairway rolls

Tapton was in good condition with fairways parched, unfortunately a lot of the fairways slope left to right or vice versa so your balls are constantly in 1st cut of rough. A few of the greens looked to have holes in them possibly caused by the heat, apart from these discrepancies everything else was fine

Return visit for sure!

I've not played this course for many years, yesterday's round was a revelation. A good number of short par 4's lull you into a false sense of security, they are subtly tricky. Overall a good challenge, on a course that is in very good condition. The greens are small with quite subtle borrows, true rolling surface but really slow even though we were following a green keeper who was mowing them. Enjoyed our game so much that we've booked to play again next week when I hope to play with a bit more freedom now that I've figured out the lines off the tee.
