The Chesterfield Golf Club was formed in 1897 and moved to its present site at Walton in 1906. The course is either side of woodland (Riggots Plantation), the top seven holes on the eastern side being quite different in character to the remaining eleven holes on the lower western side of the course, over which Birdholme Brook meanders and brings many golfers to a watery end. (Golf wise that is!) The first tee is approached through Riggots Plantation and reveals a fairly gentle par 4 at just under 300 yards. Usually only a drive and a pitch – but trouble lurks on the right and out of bounds is quite close on the left. Please give priority to people crossing from the 5th green on your right to the 6th tee on your left.
