Bakewell Golf Club

...a compact challenge

The thriving market town of Bakewell lies in the heart of the Peak District National Park. Overlooking the town and the River Wye, Bakewell Golf club enjoys glorious views of the surrounding hills and valleys.


Founded in 1899, after the course had been built to specific designs laid out by George Low. this 9 hole / 18 tee course offers golfers of all standards a testing, but enjoyable challenge. The course is a compact 9 holes running out and back along the hillside to the East of the town. Although only 5244 Yards in length (Par 68, SSS 66) for the Men and 4681 Yards. (Par 69, SSS 68) for the Ladies, the course is challenging and tricky with small, fast greens that have deceptive borrows. Allied to the natural contours of the hillside, players will enjoy the variety of shot making required.


Visitors are very welcome and will be able to play at most times.  As with any golf club, there are times to avoid when the course is busy with club competitions or matches.


This is one hilly treat laid out on some particularly undulating ground so be ready and up to challenge, and don't burn yourself out attacking the front-nine too much - the back nine isn't any less a test of your stamina, never mind a fine test of your golfing ability that the course poses.
