The Cheshire course, one of two at the luxury Carden Park Hotel, is situated at the back of the estate. It opened in 1993, and pre-dates the hotel by four years. The championship course, which has been used to host pre-qualifying events for the European tour, enjoys beautiful views across the 1,000-acre estate out to the Welsh hills beyond.
Since opening, more than a million rounds of golf have been played on the Cheshire Course at the luxury Carden Park country estate and over the years, the course has had major investment including £80,000 spent on the bunkers in 2014.
The second golf course at Carden Park was famously designed by the great Jack Nicklaus and son Steve and is perfect for every level of golfer. Situated next to the plush vineyard and offering stunning views of the Welsh hills, the course allows an average fourball to complete the course in 4 ¾ hours.
