First time playing Cavendish loved every minute of it . Course was little bit wet as been few days of heavy rain but didn't dampen the experience one bit great course great layout greens immaculate will definitely be returning for another round
You need to try this course!
What a fantastic day we had. Cavendish kindly allowed myself and 3 others to play two rounds on a very busy day as we completed the McMillan Longest day golf challenge to raise funds for charity. The event was organised at late notice which concerned us regarding tee off times. Cavendish were brilliant - we found everyone so accommodating and in full support.. The staff were so warm and friendly offering us support along the way. The members were equally great allowing us to play through without any issues despite it being on a busy comp day.
In regards to the course - it was in a fantastic condition, especially the greens which were first class. The course offers lots of unique challenges which provides for a fun and exciting round. Cavendish is a thinkers course - its clearly been methodically thought out and the green staff have done a wonderful job to to shape it so that you cant just go round with a driver and a wedge like some courses. The views and scenery are breathtaking and on a hot and sunny day like the one we had, it felt like you could have been in Florida or the Algarve.
Well done Cavendish.
Wonderful course that never stops giving :)
I'd heard a lot about Cavendish and it didn't disappoint. What a gem of a course and I'm not sure you'll find a better value Top 100 course...£37.50 midweek!!
1-3 get you warmed up and you already realise that the greens here are the speciality. Never a flat one and don't get above a hole! 4 is a spectacular par 3 surrounded by trouble before the 5th which is a brute. 6 and 7 are just beautiful holes with the woods and the rhododendron. 9-12 is possible the best loop I've played - if you still have a card going well played. 15 nearly brought me to tears and I'd rate 18 as a good a finishing hole as any course, anywhere! Wow.
Thanks Cavendish. I look forward to returning to have a beer on the terrace and to conquering your spellbinding greens!
Best deal in English golf
Cavendish may well be the best value-for-money green fee in England. Less than £40 (less than £30 for a twilight rate) to play one of Alister Mackenzie’s best designs - and one that has thankfully not been changed too much - is an absolute bargain.
Do not be fooled by the relatively short yardage. It certainly doesn’t feel short when you’re playing it and there’s enough interest in and around the fantastic set of greens to challenge even the best players.
Most importantly - it’s great fun!
A hidden gem.
First time I have played Cavendish, & I was very impressed by everything about the course. Not long, but tricky on a lot of holes with the sloping fairways & greens. Very picturesque scenery, & yes in places it does remind you of Augusta.
The greens were in very good condition, as was all the course. If you are anywhere near Buxton you should definitely give this lovely course a visit!
A course worth travelling to and spending the day at
We travelled 65 miles to play this course having seen its 5 star reviews on GolfNow. I am glad we did as the course is absolutely lovely, some really challenging holes mixed in with some very different holes which need 5 minutes planning your approach on the tee box. A mixture of raised tee boxes, natural features such as streams and valleys, along with many holes which would be signatures on other courses. As a 9 handicapper I felt the course was challenging enough to make me want to return and play it differently next time, now I have seen how the greens are laid etc. We are planning on a 36 hole visit again soon, once the clubhouses are open again so we can sample the food and hospitality too. But, if you love a thinking course with holes where you want to take a picture on each tee, then go here and you won't be disappointed.
Classy Cavendish is a must play
This great course is well worth a visit - a terrific layout in stunning scenery
The greens are the courses main defence deigned my Alistair Mackenzie -they are worth the green fee alone
Keep up the great work Cavendish
One of the most beautiful courses i have ever played. The off course amenities were sadly closed due to corona but we cant wait to go back and have a pint on the terrace when allowed! The staff were lovely.
Excellent course. Highly recommend it.
My wife and I played Cavendish and I've played it before. Excellent course which was well maintained. The greens were very true. Beautiful views of the Peak District. Lovely lady in the Pro Shop provided excellent Covid aware guidance. I would definitely recommend this course to regular players. EJM.
Very good course.
Some great holes, testing par 4 and 5s and very nice par 3s, not many flat lies here, most are very undulating fairways some that had been slit but the slits had opened up due to the record hottest May and April, they will be fine after a little rain. Nice greens.
Great views, quite hilly, electric trolley helped a lot. Very friendly staff.
Definitely recommend this course.
Played in a 2 ball whilst the restrictions were on, hence could not comment about the off course amenities.
Friendly reception with real clear guidance on what to do and where to go.
Greens were in great condition and loved the bumps and curves on them, would look forward to them being really fast and testing
Tee boxes were in great condition
Fairways had been slot luted and were awaiting some rain, but did not spoil the game
Lovely scenery, great friendly course
We will be returning that's for sure
Stunning course and a must
Lovely welcome at the golf shop and made welcome on arrival.
Course layout is really fantastic and the par 3s are stunning to play with a great 18th hole to finish with a great 2nd shot into the green.
Pace was very good and the course is a credit to all at cavendish.
Shot selection is also great fun with some good bunker shots to keep you thinking with some tricky putting.
Fantastic day worth the travel and will be back.
Thank you all.
Course was great but they over charged me
Course was in great condition and was a pleasure to play. When paying the green fee they over charged me and when I went back to the pro shop to ask for the money back they said the couldn’t pay me back because they didn’t no how and would sort it out the next day it’s 5 days later and still not contacting me. Very poor be careful to check what you have to pay as they are happy to over charge you.
First time playing after good reviews. course in good condition. some great short par 3s fairways good greens good undulating . Great countryside views. Only slight negative tee off ground was not the best , but to be fair we just had 3 days rain, and a bit more info , such as hole diagram on a board would help , show lay out of hole, overall well worth 30.00 will play again
Brilliant day out, course was in fantastic condition. Was pleasantly surprised at how good the course was, it is up there with one of the most enjoyable rounds I have had. The par 3’s were spectacular, with some very challenging par 4s. Overall it was an excellent golf course and one I would love to get the chance to play again.
Play this couse you will not be disappionted
We had to play on 3 temporary greens (because of frost) which did not spoil the round. The welcome in the pro shop was superb, The course layout brilliant. The overall experience was that good we intend to run a trip to the Buxton area next year and play this course twice, yes it is that good! This was the last day of October so we wondered how fast the greens will be in summer! Look forward to playing this again.
Great course that has some really challenging holes, the only negative thing was the greens had all been worked on and they were patchy. Would like to play it again, friendly staff in pro shop and the bar.
