To get the course playing closer to MacKenzie’s intended design, Jonathan has advised the following Phase 1 Plan:
1. Sharper, more visual impact cutting lines
2. Improved cutting profile
3. Join up the approaches to the green with all bunkering
4. Ensure that the bunkers are not isolated in the rough
5. Give the course more visual impact and depth
Warwick and his team are already working to implement Jonathan’s ideas for the start of the season.
These changes will require more ‘thinking’ by members and visitors alike, but provide even more enjoyment, playing MacKenzie’s most authentic course design.
Cavendish is very special and has featured as a TOP 100 Course for the past 4 years in independent assessments by the major golfing magazines. Each year as we approach the Masters at MacKenzie’s USA iconic Augusta National there is renewed interest in MacKenzie’s masterpiece in Buxton.
