Hilly, but great views.

Bakewell golf club is a friendly, compact golf course routed over a hillside. It makes the best use of the land it’s built on. Value for money is excellent, as you would struggle to get on a municipal for likewise green fee. I thought the course was in good overall condition, although a few areas could do with a little more work. Overall, a good little golf club to have a game if you’re in Bakewell or holidaying. Hole 7 / 16 is standout hole hitting over a road - a drivable par 4 with great elevated views of Derbyshire. Your legs will get a good workout.

Challenging picturesque course

On the day we played the course was in overall good condition with exception of some greens, which were bumpy but true. We played early afternoon and almost had millionaires golf.

Great all year round course

Always love this course. Staff and members always so welcoming and helpful. It's a 9 hole course with different pin positions so you play it round twice, but some of holes are a joy to play so much you don't mind. It's on side of a hill slope so would recommend not taking a trolly. This course is still in good condition in late Autumn and early spring as it has fairly good natural drainage.

Extraordinary course

This course is a serious workout esp when ground conditions are wet which they were - very! Greens have suffered badly with the wet.
Not that keen on shared greens/fairways but as there was only one ofother pair on the entire course it was no t an issue.
The Par 3 9h/18th is a real gem.

Testing little course

At first glance you think it’s going to be an easy knock, you really have to think about your shot placement, really enjoyed my first time there, greens will be better as the summer comes but still not bad, friendly staff and members plus my first pint for 18 months outdoors!

Been here a few times now. Challenging course with lovely views over Bakewell. Some of the greens were a little bumpy, but overall had a great afternoon again. Will visit again soon...

Perfect weather

Sunny winter day on a soggy course

We went to Bakewell because our course (Cavendish Buxton) was closed with snow. The course was very muddy and slippy in places, a few face splatters from club swings but we really enjoyed it, a beautiful winters day and we practically had the course to our selves, we are novice golfers so doing 9 holes twice was a great chance to try and improve on the second 9 once we knew the lay of the land (although all 9 holes are played from different tees) I'm looking forward to playing it again, Very friendly grounds men too

Great views and interesting holes.

Short but challenging course with many uneven stances. Very hilly in parts would recommend to carry if possible as not very accessible for trolleys. Early October and the course was in excellent condition despite the recent deluge of rain all greens were in play. You need to be reasonably fit to play this course but very enjoyable with stunning views.
