Eaton Golf Club

Eaton is a thriving Members’ golf club set in scenic Cheshire countryside. The course, designed by the famous Donald Steel, has individuality whilst incorporating natural features of ponds, streams and woodland within the gently undulating terrain.

There is a fair challenge for all levels of golfer, with the large, high-quality greens and four different tees, providing courses ranging from 5642 yds (red) to 6714 yds (black) over the eighteen holes of play.

We offer a warm welcome to visitor and members alike. Priority is given to the course, clubhouse, facilities and staff, ensuring delivery of a first-class golfing experience and potential to share and enjoy Ladies, Men’s, Mixed and Junior programmes along with a social calendar fulfilling for all.

Located 5 miles from the centre of Chester in the village of Waverton, Eaton Golf Club can be easily found.
