Today’s open was the Bridget Newell Mixed Open 4BBB, named after a celebrated Cavendish member who tragically died aged 25 in 1937, after finishing 2nd in the British Amateur the year previous. Despite a cold peak district wind, the competition still saw some great scores. The winners were Cavendish’s own Pam Brindley & Martin Knights…
The course, opened in 1925, was designed by Dr Alister MacKenzie, whose list of courses includes the iconic Augusta National, home to the Masters. Cavendish is regarded by experts to be MacKenzie’s ‘Inspiration for Augusta’ and it’s easy to see why.
With undulating fairways, changes in elevation, sloping greens and well thought out hazards, there are many holes at Cavendish that mirror those found at Augusta. Cavendish is a Top 100 golf course and is thought by many to be the best layout in the world under 6000 yards
