Buxton trip

Great golf course with excellent fairways and greens. First 9 is a lot harder than the back 9. If you keep it on the fairway you can expect a low score. Pin positions are excellent land correctly on the green and the ball will find it’s way to the hole (one player got an eagle from 130 yards out) first time playing the course but I could tell it’s one of the easier courses around, I would recommend for novice/intermediate golfers as there are some short par 4’s and visable tee to green holes.

Great course stunning views

Booked through Golf Now. One of us couldn’t make it but paid up front. No pro shop open so couldn’t get a credit. Really enjoyed rough a nightmare if you strayed off fairways, greens were fabulous and sneaky fast. Overall excellent.

Lost a heap of balls

Was a bit damp to begin with but the course played really well. I did lose lots of balls though - for me unusual. Had great fun though

Great Course Spoilt by Slow Play

Lovely course, with some very well thought out holes & scary drive on 1st if not warmed up,!! bunkers positioned in strategic spots, but if your going hack your ball around course & fanny aroiund on every tea.. please have curtesy to let 3ball pass thru rather than wait until 16th hole!!!

Intriguing course layout.

The course potentially could be fantastic. It’s has so much potential but it just needs tidying up in certain places. Some cracking holes. Quite a few blind drives. It’s almost May and I would expect the greens to be in a better condition so this was really disappointing, almost bone dry to the touch. They were in desperate need of water. But the fairways were lush and I would say this was its strength.

Nice coures

Having lived locally to bakewell for years this course hasn’t been on my radar.
Really glad we tried it !
Although the clubhouse was closed , the views of bakewell for a post game beer are amazing.
The course it self is very well maintained although the greens had just had some maintenance, once settled they’ll be fast and true.
Set on a hillside we were expecting smaller holes and lots of hills, this isn’t really the case.
You do need to be relatively fit and agile but no more than most courses.
The 9/18 hole is a real treat , looking forward to playing it again.

Buxton in April

For the time of year, I have no complaints about this course. The greens were hollow tined which is always going to happen at this time of year.
Good layout, although crossing the A6 was a mission. It has lots of holes that make you have to think, which I like. Instead of just blasting a driver away all the time, which can be tedious.
I will go back again in the height of summer and play it at its best and I can’t wait.
I’m a scratch golfer on a comeback from a bad injury and this place suited my return to 18 holes.
Very friendly staff and had a socially distanced chat with some locals who were very welcoming.
Overall, really pleased. Thank you Buxton
