The GSGB is delighted to announce that Cavendish has become the latest Participating Club.

Commissioned by the Duke of Devonshire and first opening for play in 1925, Cavendish Golf Club was designed by world famous golf course architect Dr Alister MacKenzie.

The 16th


Cavendish occupies perfect golfing ground in Buxton, Derbyshire and has a wonderful character all of its own. The land is naturally undulating and cleverly routed in such a way that walking never feels strenuous. Described as “the course that inspired Augusta” Cavendish is arguably one of MacKenzie’s most unspoiled designs where you can still test your putting stroke on the undulating style of greens that he is well remembered for.

A recent initiative to refurbish the bunkers and thin-out encroaching woodland has paid dividends and the course now looks and plays better than it has for many years.

The 4th


While the overall length may be a modest 5,721 yards with a par of 68, a round at Cavendish is always both interesting and exciting. With elevated tees and greens, ditches, ponds and valleys to contend with there are more than enough features in play to test players of all abilities.

Cavendish will be hosting one of our meetings in 2023 which is sure to be very popular with our membership.
