Excellent experience between the showers
Given that the heavens had poured forth heavy rain all morning, I was lucky only to have but one 10-minute enforced stop for a heavy shower in the afternoon. Despite the morning's rian, the course was not unduly wet and it has recovered well from last year's drought.
Other reviews give an excellent summary of the joys of this course and it is truly a gem waiting to be discovered by those willing to travel just a few miles inland from the coast.
Played this course at the end of November and it was in fantastic condition. So much so that we played off the summer tees and not the winter ones.
Very good value and as a two ball we went round in just over three hours.
The greens were in excellent condition and we could see that they were working to improve the course in other areas.
Very friendly in Pro shop and clubhouse.
Afternoons golf early October
Down in Bournemouth for a break looking for a course to play. Found ashley wood good value. First holes hilly but after that very nice . im off 8 played to 4 so happy .
A challenge to your fitness
A very good fair test of golf. After a very hilly start the course levels out to a very nice middle section and it has very testing par 3 holes. Overall a very enjoyable experience
One of Dorsets mid range finest
Ashley Wood is always accommodating to the average golfer looking to be challenged but still have a good day, tough start to your walk, with a mid section to get your score going before a tricky end, all round good day.
Nice pint of Doom to finish.
Usually a great couse to play
This course is usually a very good course to play. I rang and confirmed that the annual course maintenance would not be underway. I was told it would start the next day. Unfortunately that was not the case, it had started. It disrupted our game a bit. Disappointing.
Played Ashley Wood in August for just £16 in a two ball. The course if beautiful, the pace of play was great and the bar was very friendly afterwards. The views on this course are just spectacular and I thoroughly recommend the course for any standard of golfer.
Fabulous course. In great condition. Greens in wonderful condition. Young man in Pro Shop extremely helpful & friendly. Bar staff very welcoming. Not my first visit but my playing partner was a first time visitor. We will definitely return.
Dorsets little gem!
Great golf course - a good challenge for all Hcps with amazing views. Greens were in excellent condition and the fairways even and covered with good quality turf. Rough should have been avoided at all cost - thick and deep.
A Good All-rounder
I've always enjoyed playing the course at Ashley wood, it's got something for everyone and isn't overpriced, I played on a Saturday afternoon, as I was alone I caught up with groups but they all let my through with a second thought!
First time here, the course was very good and in great shape. It was blowing an absolute gale, but judging by the setting, I'm guessing this is a regular occurrence?! However, I really enjoyed the challenge, and there are some great holes, just a shame about the 8 straight par 4's on the back 9, could do with a par 5 and par 3 to mix it up a bit. Looking forward to coming back, hopefully on a less windy day.
Great course and a challenge in strong winds.
Second round at this course. It was quite windy which made for a tricky round. The course and the greens were in excellent condition, the staff very friendly and welcoming.
A beautifully kept course with excellent greens. Either a competition had just taken place or the person placing the pins had a sense of humour. A number of tough walks on the front nine especially but the contours add to the attraction of the course as does the amazing Dorset countryside. The back nine is fairly straightforward if you keep the ball straightish. Fairways are wide and although there are some trees around, it is called Ashley WOOD, it isn't too punitive if you stray left or right by a few yards. The last hole is a 200 yard par 3 but unless you are a single figure handicap, play it as a four and lay up with a seven or eight, pitch/chip on and trust your putter.
Lovely downland course
Course was in excellent condition, staff in the Pro Shop and the bar were extremely friendly and helpful, layout of the course good with a couple of holes where the walk from the green to the tee was slightly confusing. A perfect day out
Nice course quite challenging can be a little tricky if windy day nice to have a tea hut on the 10th hole shame it's not stocked with beer had a very relaxing game
Great course.in great condition.difficult on a windy day but we'll worth playing.
This is the first time we played Ashley Wood. Staff at the pro shop extremely helpful, when they found out it was our first time playing the course they gave us tips for certain holes, explaining where all amenities were, pointing out where the first tee was, going through the scorecard, the chap was just first class.
The course is in excellent condition & looks stunning.
The course is quite hilly but adds to the test.
The greens considering we have just come out of winter are in really good condition.
Highly recommend this course
