Description

Chevin Golf Club - The club was formed in 1894 at Duffield village some six miles north of Derby on the A6. This silver award example is flat 23.5mm and shows a dimpled ground within a raised rim, therein a raised shield for the recipient’s details with a club title scroll below. The reverse bears the marks for Birmingham 1909 by V&S. This is a very friendly Club with a testing moorland course and superb views. Leaving the pretty short Seventh you are confronted by a daunting prospect: an ancient pack-horse road lined with stone walls to your left; a very deep ‘Slough of Despond’ to your right; and a convex rising fairway to your front. I assure you the descent from the twelfth hole onward is just as attractive and you will have earned your refreshment.
