Did you know?

In 1923 the Duke of Devonshire commissioned Dr Alister MacKenzie (whose work includes Augusta National) to design a new 18 hole course on undulating and partially wooded farmland on the Duke’s estate outside Buxton. The course was to replace a 9-hole course, which the Duke wished to redevelop as a site for new housing. Cavendish was opened in 1925, becoming very popular with visitors to Buxton, who came to take the hydropathic treatments at the town’s spa baths.

Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
