Chevin Golf Club
Situated 6 miles north of Derby on the A6, on the start of the Chevin Hills, the course is mixed parkland and moorland, with magnificent countryside views. The course provides a good test of golf over 6000 yards with a Gents SSS 69 and Ladies SSS 72.
"Chevin boasts a delightful course of manageable yardage, with the sharp ascent onto the Chevin Ridge and the occasional blind shot bolstering its defences. The lower holes are mature parkland, while the upper ones have a rugged, moorland feel and a five county vista on a haze-free day. The 8th – aptly named Tribulation – lives long in the memory with its narrow, hog’s back fairway and steep climb to a green where OOB lurks right and long – though going long takes a bit of doing."
