Cavendish Golf Club, situated in the beautiful spa town of Buxton, Derbyshire offers ‘sheer golfing enjoyment’.
The course, opened in 1925, was designed by Dr Alister MacKenzie, whose list of courses includes the iconic Augusta National, home to the Masters. Cavendish is regarded by experts to be MacKenzie’s ‘Inspiration for Augusta’ and it’s easy to see why.
With undulating fairways, changes in elevation, sloping greens and well thought out hazards, there are many holes at Cavendish that mirror those found at Augusta. Cavendish is a Top 100 golf course and is thought by many to be the best layout in the world under 6000 yards.
The course has retained virtually all of the features present in MacKenzie’s original design, making full use of the natural features and providing a true test for golfers at all levels of ability.
Not long by modern standards, it requires accurate play to the demanding greens, which have left many visitors longing for a return to our exciting course.
Cavendish exemplifies MacKenzie’s belief that “length has nothing to do with the quality of a hole”
