Fantastic course with greens with a hint of Augusta
Horsley Lodge is a very well maintained parkland course set in the Derbyshire hills near Ripley, and is about 10-12 years old so some of the trees etc are still maturing, but very nicely. This course is in top condition. Some of the old stoneworks from a castle or stately home in the area has been incorporated into the layout as well adding nice features. It has some really wonderful holes and the greens are very fast, undulating, split level and very true, sort of gives you the feel of what the greens at Augusta might be like. There is a small hotel there as well which was very friendly, very nice rooms overlooking the 9th green. Well worth a stay and play, a hidden gem.
