Cavendish is recognised as one of the finest golf courses in Britain offering a great golfing experience for all.

Situated in Buxton, Derbyshire, Cavendish was opened in 1925 and designed Dr Alister MacKenzie, whose list of courses includes the  iconic Augusta National, Home of the Masters. Cavendish is regarded by experts to be MacKenzie’s ‘Inspiration for Augusta’ and it’s easy to see why. With undulating fairways, sloping greens and well thought out hazards, there are many holes at Cavendish that definitely mirror  many of those found at Augusta National.

Cavendish has been voted as a Top 100 UK Golf course for the past 4 years, and was voted as a Top 100 Fun Course to play  in 2018. Cavendish is thought by many to be quite possibly the best layout in the world under 6000 yards, offering ‘sheer golfing enjoyment’.

We have many visitors to Cavendish who thoroughly enjoy our great MacKenzie Course and so we designed the ‘Cavendish MacKenzie Trail’ ; 9 MacKenzie courses within easy travel distances from Cavendish Golf Club.

The quality and reputation of the course, spectacular scenery and friendly membership are just a few of the reasons to join Cavendish Golf Club. We have regular weekly roll-ups, which ensures newcomers can turn up and get a game with other members.
