Buxton & High Peak Golf Club, formed in 1887, and designed by J. Morris, is the oldest club in Derbyshire.
The course, located in the heart of the Peak District, on the outskirts of the beautiful Spa town of Buxton, is based on free-draining Limestone, and is certainly one of the most consistently playable in the area.
Often influenced by the prevailing wind, the 5,877 yard, par 69, course presents members, and visitors, with a challenging, and enjoyable, test of Golf.
The course has frequently been likened to an inland Links course, with the 4th, 5th, and 6th holes proving the point, and, although set some 1,100 feet above sea level, is not subjected to arduous hill climbs.
Just select the number of the hole above to see the layout and my tip.
To use the Distance Ruler for checking how far you have driven on a hole just zoom in on the hole where you want to measure and then select the "Add Distance Indicator". A blue coloured indicator will appear which you can drag to where you want to measure from. A second indicator will appear which you should drag to where you want to measure to - the distance will appear in yards.
