Beautiful Course

We really enjoyed our game at Matlock
The course is well set out, greens a little slow but we had an awful lot of rain the day before so fully understandable.

The course drains well with relatively little standing water.

The local scenery is stunning and made the game a real pleasure.

Club house, food and staff hospitality were all excellent.

We will go back to play again

Challenging

Fantastic views from well maintained course. I was expecting rolling Derbyshire hills but by 12 they felt like Himalayan foothills! We were tired but happy golfers by the 18th. Don’t forget to ask for the code to exit the car park!!

Matlock Golf Club

Went back to Matlock with 3 friends, after it being over 30 years since I played there in a Society day.
A long way for us to travel but the course was stunning.
I told my friends that I remember it being ok 30 years ago but it has been improved no end.
A lovely layout over beautiful countryside. Some of the holes were incredible.
The greens were like snooker tables.
The food and the service were great too.
We will be back.

Fair Round

Cold, but dry and bright morning. Pro told me full greens were in play and 16 were, after earlier frost.
Course in decent condition for November.Unfortunately, 2 players repeatedly teed off before we were out of range, which ruined what would have been an enjoyable round. We got round in just over 3 hours, so could not be accused of slow play. Try this course for a good test of golf.

Lovely views in a nice layout

The course was in good condition and the greens were great, especially during this dry weather we have been having. The views were very nice from almost any part of the course. There were many memorable holes although some of these were due to the slopes and hills. If you struggle a little with hard walking, I would suggest booking a buggy. I feel using a buggy would make the round so much more rewarding.

Extremely picturesque location

One has to really give much thought to each shot, with club selection being of paramount importance. Although not a long course, anyone scoring low here will have truly earned their post-round drink! It is unlike, any other course I have played, which makes it worth a visit, but beginners will find it extremely tough!

I enjoyed the challenge

Beautiful country side, the course is in great condition but very technical with many decisions to be made before each shot.
I thoroughly recommend it.

A True Test

You cant visit/live in this area without ticking Matlock GC off your list. A true test with gorse, heather, carries and wonderful views all proving a distraction.
Greens were marked in places but pins positioned well away. Fairways also varied in quality and feel with varying grass types. Worth purchasing a strokesaver and downloading the Pro's tips.
