Welcome to the Chesterfield Golf Club

The Chesterfield Golf Club (also known locally as Walton golf club), is a beautiful, well established and wonderfully maintained parkland course set amidst stunning views in North East Derbyshire. You can be assured of a wonderful welcome in our very attractive clubhouse bar, lounge and restaurant which have spectacular views down the 10th and 18th fairways towards the Peak District.

Come and enjoy the quality of our catering services which is second to none. Visitors can find out more information about our course and view photo sequences of most of our holes. You may also view current green fees and special offers for visiting parties. Look out for our next Open Day - do come along for an informal chat.

We have completed a significant course improvement programme,which has contributed to our course becoming what we believe is the one of the most attractive and highest quality courses in the North Midlands, also easily accessible from South Yorkshire.

Latest Course News

Areas prepared as Winter Greens are ‘Ground Under Repair - Play Prohibited’. Lift, Clean and Drop is compulsory.

During August, all the greens were verti-drained, top-dressed and brushed, then micro-tined, top-dressed and brushed. In total some 50 tonnes of top dressing was applied. All this work is carried out to provide firm and free-draining greens for play through the winter season. 
Our STRI Agronomist, Stuart Ormandroyd, has visited to inspect the course. His report is awaited but there is no reason to believe it will be anything other than positive. One comment he did make during his visit was to congratulate the Club, and the Green Staff particularly. The samples taken from our 1st, 6th and 18th greens were the best samples analysed through the whole of last year, and that includes all of the championship courses they look after.
But we still can’t repair our pitch-marks or rake our bunkers. It was particularly distressing to find the green on the practice area pitted with pitch-marks this week. Obviously caused by full shots into the green, entirely against Club Rules, which will be applied should the culprit be identified.

Members' additional course information here including information on "Hope House" - the new starter's hut and the new bridge on the 15th.
During the 2013/2014 Winter, we've implemented a completely new irrigation system throughout our course which should show significant benefit in future dry periods and ensure our course is presented at its very best for both members and visitors.
For up-to-date information on whether or not the course is open and any restrictions, please ring the Course Line on 01246 279256 Extension 6 (updated daily at 7.15am). Link to Local BBC Weather forecast.
