Where to Stay: Carden Park Golf Resort
The Golden Bear and his Son Steve designed the Nicklaus course at Carden Park that opened for play in 1998. The Nicklaus Course is one of the best new golf courses in England and a firm favourite for a short golf break in the UK. The layout is perfectly set up for large groups and society golf.
As with all Nicklaus designs, you can expect a tough course and a challenge for all levels of golf ability.
This Parkland course is well-drained and can be played in top condition most of the year-round.
The course has two double fairways and plenty of water hazards designed to wreck scorecards if not respected and if you do not adopt an air of caution.
Measuring over 7,000 yards from the tips but a leisurely 5,200 from the front tees, the Nicklaus course at Carden Park is not just a fun golf course to play but also one that will hold your interest and has even held two PGA Senior tour tournaments.
Make sure to hold your Longest drive competition on the 9th hole where players are encouraged to open their shoulders and mark a big drive down the pretty forgiving fairway.
Carden Park is a great stay and plays option in Cheshire with two courses to play which makes an ideal venue for a one night, two round golf trip that is not just excellent value but a delightful short golf break.
Carden Park - The Cheshire Course
The Cheshire course is an excellent second golf course on the fantastic Carden Park golf resort. A Championship standard course at a little over 6,500 yards.
The Cheshire course is very technical and will test even the best golfers in your group. The course incorporates excellent views over the Welsh hills and the resort.
The course is kept in fantastic condition throughout the year and has plenty of water hazards to keep you on your toes.
The Chesire course is very modern in design, and the standout hole would be the driveable par 6th.
Carden Park is an excellent venue for a short golf break and ideally suited for Societies and groups.
