The Nicklaus course, designed by the great Jack Nicklaus and his son Steve, unfolds beautifully in the stunning setting of Carden Park. The layout can stretch to 7,045 yards but even from forward tees, there's more than enough challenge even for the best players in the world.
With several ‘double option’ holes such as 7th and 15th which offer a choice of fairways from which to approach the green. The Nicklaus course offers a scenic yet strategic test of golf where position more than length is crucial.
A Longest Drive competition is recommended on the 4th, with the 16th ideal for Nearest the Pin. An average fourball can expect to complete the Nicklaus Course in around 4 ¾ hours.

Fantastic Hotel & Excellent Service
Hotel facilities were perfect, very comfy beds for a great nights sleep. Staff were very helpful and friendly.
Food and drink overpriced even for a hotel but not unexpected
Everything good only problem was fine dining in restaurant which didn't suit my wife and I and wasn't good value for us.
Delightful hotel with extremely helpful staff. A most enjoyable stay.
Beautiful hotel in a fabulous setting but disappointed with the golf experience. The greens were not in very good condition. I played here a few years ago and they were much better then. Also, there was no course management, we were behind several groups of hackers with no course etiquette, consequently me and my mate had one five and a half hour round and one four and three quarters.
Great place didn’t stay in hotel we stayed in one of the apartments that’s was excellent very comfortable and all you needed, bit of a walk from the hotel, we eat in the vines restaurant food good & staff friendly. But got woken by a few lady guests and men friends laughing and drinking till about 1am they had no respect for the other guests in the apartment block. So a very bad night had by all.
Staff were very polite and helpful room was realy great very spacious and clean overall it was excellent
Very nice hotel . Friendly and helpful staff. Nice room. All good
Quality but bar prices a little steep. All meals were very good . Decent choices but £25 allowance limited these. Upgraded without cost to courtyard room which was great - small private balcony for drinks etc. Nice.
Great hotel. We were a mixed couples party of 10, and have had an annual trip for the last five years to different golf resorts. Everyone said the hotel was the best yet! One night wasn’t enough to enjoy the full facilities. Great rooms and good food. Ate well for the £25 allowance included in YGT package.
Absolutely fist class venue
Excellent hotel, good food and friendly staff
Great facilities, helpful & friendly staff in all departments of the Hotel
lovely hotel, we went as a group of 8 on a golfing weekend and were all impressed with the facilities, staff and general standard of the hotel.
Nearly everything was spot on. Rooms, staff and quality were excellent. Having an agreement for a 3 course meal off the menu, we were restricted to £25 maximum spend per person. This equates to less than 2 courses depending on your choice and certainly not 3 courses.
Could not fault accommodation, a quality 4**** hotel. Everyone helpful, well trained and polite. Only complaint was that drink prices were excessive
Comfortable hotel with good facilities, only downside was the prices at the bar
Very good but some of the party found the food average only. Excellent breakfast for all.
Very relaxing stay in excellent facilities.
Fantastic hotel staff were very helpful all in all a great place would highly recommend

Excellent well presented course considering the time of year.
Great course would love to play again.
Very nice course. Par 3 start is always a tricky one mind.
To clarify we were in a 2 ball and it took 4h 30m but we followed a party so accepted it would be slow. The course again was in good condition considering the overnight weather. Greens a little slower than the Nicklaus but still good. We found this course was not as demanding thank goodness but thoroughly enjoyable and more picturesque. Worth another visit to see if we can play them better!
To clarify above speed was about right we played 2pm it took 3h 45m (2 ball). The course is difficult greens very undulating and fast. That said really enjoyed the afternoon.
Bad signage so got lost a couple of times.
Expected, better conditions and someone needs to manage the extremely slow play
five and a half hours , no course management. Disappointing if you are a half decent player
Very slow round of golf that didn’t help our game, we came off on the 15th as we got fed up
Great course in great condition, bit slow play on back 9.
This course was a little easier than the nicklaus course the 18th was a very picturess the view from the18th was amazing overall another great course
The course was a very demanding course but extremely enjoyable
Really enjoyed this beautiful course.
Top class. Clearly the flagship course for the resort and maintained accordingly. Delighted we were.able to play this course twice in our 3 round deal. All 4 players thought this was the Best layout in the best condition.
Course looked a little tired . Greens excellent but fairways and tees needed a bit of tlc.Setting as ever beautiful.
Everyone enjoyed the Nicklaus course over the Cheshire. A fair and interesting test. Far better presented. Easier on the legs!
Average rating for difficulty of the course is my rating as 5 handicapper. The ladies in our party found it difficult and a v long walk. My trolley battery gave up after 16 holes. First time. Nuff said! I played this course a few years ago and thought the condition was better then. Fairways needed a cut and lacked definition. Tees needed a cut. Bunker surrounds have been left to grow out a la Pinehust. Didn’t work for me sadly. Condition of course maybe down to weather before our arrival. A lot of bunkers were GUR.
Good course but needs work
Course was excellent and the preferred course of the party and quite a bit flatter but long and we were all glad we used buggies. Only quibble was people not using buggies slowing the round up and if you want buggies make sure you book in advance.
Course in excellent condition and harder than it first appears. We were glad we used buggies but people that walk slow the round up quite a bit.
Great course in very good condition, with some difficult holes. Lots of bunkers & water, so club selection key. Well stocked Halfway House if refreshments required.
There is a distance between some of the greens & the next T so I would recommend hiring a buggy, especially if like me you are an older golfer (68) However the bubby hire rate is a bit steep at £30. There is also a Half-Way House on the course which was closed when we passed around 15.30pm.
Lovely course, first cut still a bit long which meant it played very hard if you missed a fairway.We went as a group of 8 and played both courses and everyone in the group preferred the Cheshire.
First cut was too long, if you just missed the fairway you were unfairly penalised by the length of the first cut.Otherwise a lovely course with a great 17th hole.
Lovely picturesque course. Some tricky holes that required good course management. Really enjoyed it.
Greens not as slick and true as The Cheshire course. Overall though in good condition and enjoyed by all.
Same as Cheshire course
Every hole different, excellent 3 finishing holes wi the rhododendrons out. Small complaint, hence 4****, some of the bunkers were short of sand
Generally the course was fine but the greens had just been “holler tined” and were unreliable. However, at this time of year this treatment is necessary although we should have been informed, by the club, and perhaps a reduction of the fee. However we enjoyed the experience.
Course was presented a lot better than the Cheshire
The course wasn't in the best condition - no defined fairways. Slightly dissapointing from a previous visit
Loved this course very pretty some lovely holes
Tees not great but still enjoyable back 9 was really nice
