Cavendish, which opened in 1925, was designed by Alister Mackenzie, and unlike many early courses has not been altered in response to today’s pressures.

The course at 5721 Yards off the White Tees offers one par for men, 68, and another par, 72, for the ladies and juniors. By intention the course layout has remained virtually unchanged since the opening day and has claims to be MacKenzie’s best UK design. Cavendish most closely meets two key design principles laid down by MacKenzie. Firstly, that the course should have beautiful surroundings and all artificial features should have so natural an appearance that a stranger is unable to distinguish it from nature. Secondly, that the course should be so interesting that the plus handicap golfer is constantly stimulated to improve his or her game, but that the high handicap player should be able to enjoy a round in spite of piling up a big score.

The Cavendish fairways are shaped by natural contours to force poor shots into the most difficult positions from which to attack the greens. Accurate pitching is vital, since the classic MacKenzie greens contain many subtle slopes that produce testing putts. This will be particularly noticeable on the par 4 second, the par 4 fifth and the par 3 fifteenth.

Before beginning your round why not visit the modern and well stocked Professional’s shop and confirm your starting time. Having completed your round, we hope you will enjoy relaxing in our Clubhouse which boasts beautiful views across the course and surrounding Peak District Hills from the veranda.

Stunning must play

Absolutely fantastic course designed by Dr Alister Mackenzie, designer of Augusta national, well manicured rolling fairways leading to superb smooth fast undulating greens, the natural hills have been well used with raised tees to greens 40 feet below you, if you misread a putt it can roll back past your feet. It's not long but don't be fooled a par is well earned here, only let down is some of thre daily tees are in separate locations to the white/reds look out for a hot deal I payed £16 to play this gem

cavendish a mackenzie master class

I had the pleasure of playing this on probably the first day of spring it was glorious and the peakviews sensational. The course whilst not long is sufficiently testing to be of interest to all handicaps. The highlight being the mackenzie greens with all the slopes and different speeds, having played his most famous aka, cypruss beach and royal melbourne and new south wales and walked augusta, its clear these greens are based on the same principals you have to put the ball in he right place to attack the hole.

Highly recommend especially if you aint bothered to 3 putt, which inevitably you will.

Bet would be cold and bleak, maybe miserable in winter though!!!!!!!!
