At short notice two of us decided to play the Cavendish for the first time. We managed to get an early tee time, ahead of the Seniors Championship, which meant an early start from home in Davenham, Cheshire, for a comfortable one hour journey to a venue that was beyond our usual 'local' distance. We were given a warm welcome... More

Just had the pleasure of playing a round of Football Golf for my son's joint birthday party. 25No 7 & 10 year olds running round was great fun. Everyone enjoyed themselves and it made a nice change from normal party themes! Have to say that the venue and course are absolutely stunning, real nice place to spend an afternoon. Thanks... More

First of all our small group arrived at 10,15am sunday 17th April for our 11.00 am tee time. On entering the golf clubhouse there was no -one in the premises at all, no bar... More

Yes that's right. The Cavendish is one of the Derbyshire courses offering the fast growing sport of Footgolf. So if you fancy visiting a beautiful part of Derbyshire and kicking a football around the specially prepared course this, I'm assured by my 16year old lad, is a great way to spend a couple of hours. You can go for The... More

We played here on 18th March as a birthday treat. I was delighted to score 34 points, though I was helped by the short course - there were about 5 or 6 temporary greens. This was not really a problem as the real greens had recently been hollow tined and were a little long, so not very fast. The course... More

A rather unusual design, much of which is on the side of the hill with views over the valley. The opening holes across a rather steep slope are not as remarkable as many of the others. Some of the greens have extremely severe slopes so require a precise shot or local knowledge to know where the ball will come to... More

Despite poor weather, we had a great round of golf on what is a challenging course. Members really friendly and welcoming. Nice food afterwards. Well worth a visit.

My wife and I went to Cavendish for a round of golf. We were met by John and Rachel in the Reception/ Pro shop. We have never experienced such a warm friendly welcome anywhere!
