Matlock Golf Club
...testing and fun
Matlock Golf Club celebrated its centenary year in 2006 and in the time since then its course has developed into one of the best in the whole Derbyshire area.
It was designed by Tom Williamson, and his efforts have definitely paid dividends, as the course is an excellent example of a moorland layout and is enjoyed not only by local golfers but also those visiting or passing through the region.
It is by no means the longest, measuring under 6000 yards from the tee on the first hole to the pin on the eighteenth. Still though, each hole presents a distinctive and motivating challenge for you to take on and enjoy. Par the 5th, 6th, 9th and 16th and award yourself a gold star!
The course is situated on Matlock Moor, about one and a half miles North of Matlock on the Chesterfield Road, rising to 850 feet above sea level.
18 holes yellow tees 5808 yards. S.S.S. 69
Bentley Brook meanders through the course to give particular interest on several holes and the rolling moorland, with its trees, heather, ravines and gullies, provides for a very attractive and testing round of golf, improved by outstanding views down the DerwentValley. The 11th fairway features the Cuckoo Stone, a gritstone rock on which the club motif is based.
