The chap in the shop.was right.....you go up hill for 2houra...lovely course....great views
Early morning tee off
Booked this as a last minute tee off for a Sunday morning round. Tee off at 7:22 for a two ball.
No one at the clubhouse or pro-shop (understandably) at that time. Superb putting green and there are two warm up nets, couldn’t see a range.
Nice easy par 4 opening hole, greens are some of the best I’ve played on (I’d rate 9/10), fairways needed a cut and a bit more attention (5/10) and tees again needed attention (6/10). Surprised at the fairways and tees as the greens really are sublime.
Loved the course layout, some really interesting holes. There is the strangest SI 18 par 3 I have ever seen, around 250 yards, blind tee shot with a direction post at @ 150 yards. Turns out you hit to a sunken ‘amphitheater’ green. Some of the higher handicap golfers will struggle to even reach, let alone hit the green.
Stunning views and not too tough, 17th and par 5 18th are brilliant finishing holes.
Finished by 11am so too early to check out the food and bar, but nipped into the well stocked pro-shop for my essential course ball-marker.
There are some really steep bits, both on the holes and between the tees, so it helps to be fit and agile.
Will definitely love to play it again, we both had a time.
Chevin is a varied and testing mature course, which we enjoyed in excellent condition.

First impressions first class.
Richard in the pro shop was friendly and gave a quick overview of the course.
The course was in brilliant condition.
Our tee time was 14.00;and was surprised by how busy the course was.
We teed off before time as the four ball in front of us moved off quickly and continued to keep up with them for three or four holes as they were in buggies.
We did fall back after due the hilly conditions and not knowing the course as this was the first time at this course.
At around the ninth hole the four ball behind were catching us up so a asked if wanted to pass through they politely refuse so we carried on.
Two hole further on a three ball behind the four ball behind became abusive saying we were holding the whole we explained we offered to let the four through but still one of the three continued to be rude and abusive, unbelievable. I would reported this foul abusive person if the pro shop had been open when completed our round.
This spoiled our round and really upset out group.
I feel we will not return as the course is too hard for senior members.
Beautiful course but some lottery drives
Heard this course was hilly which was great but couple holes impossible to land ball in fairway
Greens in pretty good condition but can see they will be fantastic
Very friendly club will definitely return
Good Course with Great Views
Managed to book and play the course in the best weather for the time of the year.
The course is very hilly and the climb to the top of the course (11th green I think) is a challange but the views all around the course make this more than worthwhile.
Its a very dry course and I would suggest/think it would be good in wet weather?
Green fast and true. We had a few areas of GUR in and around the green but all in all a good track
Wicked sick Course
First time playing here, having not heard anything about the course. Although the weather wasn’t great and the greens had been very recently aerated it was absolutely brilliant! Each hole is fantastic and as you climb higher and higher as you play through the course the views become better and better. A fairly open course as well which aids those who may struggle off of the tee box. Will certainly returning!
Enjoyable Course With Great Views
Front 9 largely uphill, so quite demanding without a buggy, but worth it for the views. Back 9 plays considerably easier, with some interesting holes off elevated tees. Definitely worth a visit.
In the teeth of some dramatic weather this this course held up very well indeed.
Come and try it you won’t be disappointed
What a hidden gem in the East Midlands and incredibly beautiful, well and laid out course.
As always I thoroughly enjoy my visits to Chevin. I live in Leics and I come up 2-3 times a year to play the course. Very friendly staff and every member I.met were friendly and welcoming. I went round with 2 members, Jerry & Dave who were both great company and the round went very quickly in I thoroughly enjoyed it. The course is in fantastic condition and whilst the walk was quite hilly for the first 9 holes the course is well laid out. My favourite holes - the 4th/6th/10th/12th/14th/17th/18th and the views from the 13th fairway are the best in the region. Well done Chevin staff and members and I wish I lived nearer as I would jump at the chance to become a member.
Scenery and sorcery
From the first tee the fairways look like a carpet. An excellently maintained course that played particularly hard due to an unrelenting wind. This is Derbyshire so perhaps that is to be expected! The terrain is used to frame so many of the holes wonderfully and the greens have subtle and hidden breaks that caused our group great challenge. I would say this is the best course in terms of layout and conditions that I have played in Derbyshire. A real treat and I will be back
Lovely greens, good short course, hilly
Worth a play for sure. If you like quirky courses where strategy is valued more than length then this is very good. Undulating fairways throughout and lots of elevation. Greens were really good and ran very true. I felt the par 3s were pretty weak (first three only 120 yards) with little danger. 18th was a strong finishing par 5. Will play again.
