Established in 1906 on the undulating moorland above the town of Matlock, the eastern gateway to the Peak District National Park, our Club offers a challenging 18-hole par 70 course with spectacular views across the Derwent Valley and unrivalled practice facilities, including a 10 bay covered and floodlit driving range. With every hole different and the Bentley Brook meandering through the course to add further interest, Matlock is a regular choice for county and inter-county fixtures and each year welcomes many other visitors – individuals, societies and corporate groups. Matlock Golf Course is situated 850 feet above sea level in the hills of Derbyshire just on the edge of the Peak district. This gives the course some fantastic backdrops and scenery. With different terrain to modern golf courses Matlock has stayed true to its design with cut and fill greens with steep banks. Accuracy over length is important. The Golf Course is built on moorland with heather, gorse, wild flowers and diverse wild life prominent. A number of bird boxes are in place around the course with large areas of land maintained specifically to encourage different flora and fauna including wild orchids, insects and small mammals.
