Through two major grants over the last two years from the Tarmac’s national Landfill Communities Fund, the club has been able to install a short six-hole course and refurbish locker room facilities.

The short course can be used by anyone and the artificial grass greens allow it to be used all year round.

Bob Scott, Club chairman, said: “We are extremely grateful to Tarmac for its very generous support for these projects which will provide great benefits to members and the wider Buxton population.

"We have seen an increased interest in golf, from all ages, over the last year.

"Starting golf and practicing can be difficult for any newcomer; the new Par 3 Academy course provides an excellent place for people to have a go.”
