CHEVIN GOLF

When I meet people who live a long way from the Midlands and I say “I’m from Derbyshire” they all respond in mostly the same way, “Ah, what a lovely part of England”, and they are right as a whole, although that all depends on what part of Derbyshire they are thinking about...

CHILWELL MANOR

CHILWELL MANOR

The thought of having their beloved tree cut down or favourite hole redesigned or green dug up and re-laid is just too much for some members. But let me tell you this, even your Royal St David, the Belfry, Gleneagles and the hallowed turf of St Andrews, dig up, remove, and reshape to keep the course enjoyable to play. Do you think their army...

MAPPERLEY GOLF CLUB

MAPPERLEY GOLF CLUB

‘St. Andrews Institute Golf Club’ was founded in the early 1900’s, and by 1909 was paying its £1.00 subscription to the Notts. Union of Golf Clubs. About 1924 the Club was taken over by the Y.M.C.A and became the ‘Morley House Y.M.C.A Golf Club’.

NORTH DEVONS VERY BEST

NORTH DEVONS VERY BEST

After a 4am start, is there a better way to wake up than by being hit by a stiff Atlantic wind and driving rain! The Royal North Devon Golf Club(or RND as it’s known) holds the title of England’s oldest golf club, dating back to 1864. It quite astonishingly still has a virtually unchanged layout, still playing as it would have been played 150 years ago in Victorian England.

ILE AUX CERFS

ILE AUX CERFS

Designed by the two-time masters champion Bernhard Langer, the golf club is accessible to players of all levels. The course covers the southern half of the Ile aux Cerfs island with the holes snaking up and down the length of the island, boasting natural undulations, volcanic rock outcrops, lakes and gullies, and a variety of tropical trees and plants.
All 18 holes of this island golf have views of the Indian Ocean. Expansive white sand bunkers and water set off the natural backdrop of trees and vegetation perfectly.
