Course overview

Cavendish Golf Club is situated in the town of Buxton, Derbyshire.    The club dates back to 1925 when the course was first designed by Dr Alister MacKenzie, just a few years before he went on to design the home of the Masters, and arguably the most famous golf course in the world, Augusta National.   Given the small number of years between the designs, Cavendish is regarded by experts to be one of MacKenzie’s ‘Inspiration for Augusta’.    From the changes in elevation delivered by the undulating fairways and sloping greens to the strategically placed hazards, it’s easy to see why. Even today, the course retains virtually all of the features in MacKenzie’s original design.  Coming in at just over 5,700 yards, the course also exemplifies MacKenzie’s belief that “length has nothing to do with the quality of a hole”. It’s certainly not long by modern standards, but it demands accurate shots and has tricky greens means that it offers a different challenge to other courses in the area.    It’s length hasn’t stopped it being recognised as one of the best too. A regular feature in the top 100 golf courses in England, it’s regarded by many as one of the best courses in the world under 6000 yards.
