The Nicklaus Course
"It certainly is a thinking man’s golf course". JACK NICKLAUS
Famously designed by the great Jack Nicklaus and son Steve, the Nicklaus golf course at Carden Park is a must for all golfing enthusiasts.
A picturesque start at the first hole awaits. Located next to the onsite vineyard and offering beautiful views of the Welsh hills, your game leads you around the front of the Cheshire country estate.
Beware: there are many strategic moves required to avoid the hazards along the way during your golf game. The double option holes of the 7th and the 15th offer a choice of fairways from which to approach the green.
A longest drive competition is recommended from the 4th hole with the nearest the pin best taken on the 16th hole.
Your game is almost complete when you play in front of the full hotel on the 17th. Can you hold your nerve?
An average fourball can expect to complete the course in 4 ¾ hours.
Cheshire Golf Course
Situated at the back of the estate, the golf course has beautiful views across the estate and the Welsh hills beyond.
The bunkers have been designed to flow with the natural contours of the landscape; you will need a sharp swing to keep out of them all. If you have a competitive streak we recommend you take a longest drive from the 9th hole and nearest the pin at the 15th hole.
As you get towards the end of your game, the 16th and 17th lead you to the 18th hole set upon a cliff overlooking the full estate. An average fourball can expect to complete the course in 4 ½ hours.
