Fabulous course - tough greens

Delightful course played for second time as the first time was extremely cold windy and wet.
This time conditions were perfect and reflected in the scorecard although position on the greens is crucial or you can be easily be looking at a 3 putt

Brilliant Course

Although on temporary Greens today (understandably - it was minus 3), this is a magnificent course and we can't wait to play it in the spring.
Course was in great condition despite the weather and the greens looked superb too
The pro rang us on the way over to tell us about the temps - first time that has happened so fair play!

Great course

This is one of the best courses in the Northwest. When we played the weather was terrible for the first few holes but it cleared up by the fifth and I'm glad we carried on. The course is a really good layout with lots of variety in the holes and the views are truly stunning. I'll definitely be going back in the spring or summer to play again.

Great course

From tee to green the course is in fantastic condition, especially the greens which are undulating and lightening fast. Not the longest of courses but the layout presents lots of challenges and the scenery is beautiful. Will be returning to play this gem.

If you get the chance

This course is just fantastic.
Starts nice and easy and just gets better . The greens are some of the best I've ever played on , true and quick , undulating and tricky . Just because this is not along course dont think it's easy. If your looking for a true test of golf then have a go . The fairways are great and there is some stunning holes with great views. A pleasure to play and will be back .the best course for the money you can play . The food is really good in the 19th hole aswell as the beer . CHEERS

Ex Jockeys GS Cavendish Golf Day

The staff when booking the golf society were very helpful and they were excellent during the day when we played. The Cavendish GC was very welcoming. The facilities were excellent and the course in general was in very good condition (just the bunkers need a little attention and the slits that haven’t healed on one or two fairways), but all 16 of us enjoyed the course. One or two of the greens are different levels, so a little testing, but a welcome challenge . In general the greens were in very good condition and quick to say the least. The course is challenging and therefore does require some course management, but it was very enjoyable. The 18th hole is very challenging (I was glad to get to the 19th lol). We will definitely be back, 3 years in a row.
