In 1923, Dr. Alister MacKenzie, one of the finest
landscape architects of the twentieth century, was commissioned
by the Duke of Devonshire to design a new eighteen-hole golf
course on his expansive estate. The result was the magnificent
Cavendish course, which is as splendid today as it was in the
1920s. A par 65, it is designed upon undulating woodland and
dense copses, making it a challenge for golfers of all
abilities. Its feature hole is probably the par three fifth,
from which you need to hit the green from your elevated tee shot
or risk being caught in any of the green's many surrounding
traps. Accuracy, concentration and awareness of the wind speed
and direction are essential on this hole especially.
I look forward to seeing you all on the 26th.
GOLF DAY CANCELLATIONS
Please be aware that there is always
the chance that, due to adverse weather in the days preceding a
golf day, a course may be closed or have a trolley ban. If
there is a problem then, wherever possible, those with email
will be informed and information will be posted on the website.
However, it is ultimately up to you to check if a course is open
or has any restrictions by phoning the club (not Steve).
For those of you who are members of a golf
club, please remember to keep a copy of your handicap
certificate in your bag at all times. This is just in case a
course requests that we provide them before play.
