WELCOME TO CHAPEL-EN-LE-FRITH GOLF CLUB
Chapel-en-le-Frith Golf Club is 18 holes, and measures 6400 yards, representing an interesting and enjoyable challenge in the most beautiful countryside.
Chapel are continually working with a leading UK agronomist and STRI to ensure the highest standard of general course presentation.
We are operating a one-way system around the premises, see our Covid-19 page for a map and instructions. We are using the 12th tee as the 1st tee for the time being which helps with the management of the safe-distancing one-way system that is currently in operation.
The Front Nine
The golf course is situated on the valley floor between Chapel-en-le-Frith and Whaley Bridge with beautiful views of the surrounding peaks and ridges. Set on the edge of the Combs Reservoir this is a great front half with many interesting holes. The par 4 fifth presents a true golfing challenge and is one of those holes that makes you want to come back again and again! The brave golfer can opt to cut the dogleg by driving over the field and the trees to be rewarded, if successful, by a simple 8 or 9 iron to the green. Those who opt for the safer route are faced with a driver and a long iron or fairway wood to cover the same distance. The most beautiful hole on the course is undoubtedly the par 5 eighth. It has the reservoir running along its length and as you play directly down the valley, with the hills rising around you, the views are truly breathtaking.
The Back Nine
Play well around the front nine and you are going to be in good shape, however, there is still plenty of work as you face the second nine. The back nine at Chapel is considered to be amongst the most testing in Derbyshire. All of the holes offer individual challenges, like the fourteenth, where you are asked to play across the pond and stop the ball within a few yards to have a reasonable chance of making a birdie. And, if you are still in contention after the fifteenth, you are faced with a real test over the final three holes with two long, tricky par fours and a par five to finish.
Footpaths - there are many public footpaths that go around and across the golf course and these are currently seeing much more use by walkers. We would therefore ask that all golfers exercise great care, be aware of the public footpaths crossing the course and members of the public who may be using the footpaths or may have inadvertedly walked away from the paths onto the course. Footpaths cross the fairways on the 2nd, 4th, 5th (front of the tee area), 10th, 11th,12th, 14th (front of the tee area), 16th,17th and 18th
holes. If there are people crossing in front of you on the course, then please wait until the way ahead and fairway are clear before playing.
