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.
