Dating back to 1887, the course has been likened to an inland links course with the 4th, 5th and 6th holes proving the point. Buxton & High Peak Golf Club is the perfect host for your golfing day out.



Heading out of town on the A6 Manchester road you can’t miss Buxton and High Peak GC.

A gloriously natural course founded in 1887 on a free draining limestone base, parkland in the main but it has unique and rugged areas more akin to inland links. This way you get some welcome variety and a test of a different kind for your game.

Holes four, five and six highlight the contrast best, tucked away in a quiet little corner, no great length but they pack a punch through a bumpy landscape with small banked up putting surfaces to target.

Signature hole though is the 8th, a downhill par three, just 135 yards in length but the quite dramatic change in elevation and little pot bunkers short of the green can make it a bit of a card wrecker if you don’t judge the club wisely. Towards the close, a succession of very attractive par fours on gently undulating terrain take you back to the clubhouse, a lovely environment for golf, you’ll want to come back for more.

The clubhouse has a well stocked bar, large dining area and excellent catering facilities. Visitors and societies welcomed seven days a week.

Another level – Leamington & County

Leamington and County GC has the experience of over 100 years of golfing tradition combined with a healthy modern attitude to bringing new golfers into the game.

Leamington have undertaken some course developments this year too, a slightly altered layout now exists with a re-route and two changed holes which include a new 18th. A joint editor’s visit was required to check it all out, Mandy and myself chose the hottest day of the year to do it!

Nuneaton GC – 2018 style

The fortunes of Nuneaton Golf Club are doing rather nicely of late, a rate of progress to compare favourably with their famous son. Locally born Andy Sullivan played his golf here from picking up a club at the age of ten. He still lives in the area and during his downtime away from the European Tour is often to be found on the fairways of Nuneaton, still playing money games with old mates.
