Considering the recent weather the course and the greens were in excellent condition. Work is being carried out on two greens by removing some trees, and this will make Came Down a lovely course to play on this summer.

The course is stunning. Grounds are perfect, scenery is stunning, staff are fab. Having some of the people playing who have no golf experience infront of us really slowed things down, but would play there regularly.

The course and the greens are in fantastic condition and play extremely well. The layout on the front 9 is the more interesting half of the course but the back 9 is a real challenge as you're completely exposed to the wind. A good challenge for all players.

Good course.

Not too difficult and not easy. Quite open.

Really difficult greens to hold in summer and pretty fast.

Fantastic views of Dorset.

I would defiantly recommend

Perched up on top of the ridge between Weymouth and Dorchester, the views here are to die for. The front 9 is very hilly with some really challenging holes, not to mention some of the sloppiest greens ever ! The back 9 is much flatter but not easier, and with a bit of wind, is very challenging for different reasons.<br/> Super greens, in very good condition and so slopey that an uphill putt is like putting on treacle and a downhill putt is like glass ! Outstanding views of South Dorset on the front and a commanding view of Weymouth bay of the back.
