Cavendish Golf Club

...proving size doesn't matter

Cavendish, which opened in 1925, was designed by Dr Alister MacKenzie, and unlike many early courses has not been altered in response to today’s pressures.


At 5721 yds off the medal tees, the course remains shorter than many, yet still fulfils MacKenzie's belief that length has nothing to do with the quality of a hole (unlike the current committee at the Augusta National!).


The respected American course architect and writer Tom Doak included Cavendish among only four English Midlands courses in his book on 1325 courses worldwide. He also named Cavendish as one of a small group he rated with the best par under 70. In his selection of the 18 best holes from courses that aren’t on anyone’s top 100 list, he included the 422 yd 10th (par 4) at Cavendish.


Over the years, many notable visitors including Henry Cotton and Babe Zaharias have played Cavendish. So if you choose to visit the “Jewel in the Crown” of Derbyshire golf courses you’ll be following in the footsteps of some golfing greats, and preceding Tiger Woods, who has yet to meet the challenge of Cavendish!


Cavendish Clubhouse is 100% smoking free and smoking is prohibited anywhere inside the clubhouse or any other building. Smoking is permitted on the balcony.

The clubhouse also offers a well furnished lounge area with a well stocked bar which is open daily.


Through the door off the bar is a snooker room which boasts a full size snooker table with light and score board, a darts board, cards, dominos and chess.


Cavendish also offers Big Screen on some sporting events on our projector. Our projector offers roughly an 70 - 80" screen.
