Always a great day's golf

Challenging, but never too frustrating. All in all, it's a very enjoyable course and highly recommended.

Windy and challenging

Course in excellent condition and delighted to get a Saturday tee time as a visitor. Restaurant was over-burdened with a table of 16 at 7.30pm which was a shame.

Beautiful Course

A friend and I played Dudsbury earlier this week for the first time. We were both thoroughly impressed with the course conditions and layout. It's a challenging course without being impossible for higher handicap golfers. The fairways are generous in size but there are plenty of elevation changes and the greens are fast, meaning that you have to think about each shot carefully.

I would definitely recommend Dudsbury to any friends and family and would rate it as one of the best courses I've played in the Bournemouth area.

Frost greens

A nice course with some great views but disapointed to be playing on frost greens when the sun had been shinning all morning and the green keeper wouldnt come out to check them again

Temporary greens

Booked what thought was good value hot deal

All of course on temporary greens, keepers said it was because of frost conditions. It was 11.38 tee time. Totally frost free.

If I ad known wouldn't have bothered.

Chaos management of Tee Times

Dudsbury is an excellent course facilities my issue on Wednesday was with regard to the bad management of the tee off times A uni match between Bournemouth and Hereford was running late which delayed my tee time by 40 mins which had they then moved on with normal speed on play would have been ok but the 4 x4ball matches were very very slow and took forever to complete a hole we walked off the course on the 9 th hole 3hours later it was not worth trying to carry on .Other groups were trying to contact the club house from on the course but nothing was done to help the situation what a waste of money leaves a bad taste for any future rounds. Pity the course looked a good challenge

Perfect weather

Paid £18 + £1 booking fee, (why is that added to every green fee, not just one), with the hot deal package that was great value. Course in good condition apart from many bunkers full of water after recent heavy rain, but greens were surprisingly quick. Excellent course, pace of play determined by the two of us who walked it in 3 hours and not affected by anyone else in front or behind.

Dudsbury - Excellent

Dudsbury is a beautiful course. The fairways & greens were in excellent condition.

I booked a hot deal for £18, this was fantastic value for money, normal afternoon green fee is £25 but would have happily paid this.

Staff helpful & friendly.

Pace of play was slow but this was not course's fault! It is a challenging course so you need to be a fair standard. Unfortunately the 3 ball in front of us were not & held us up.

Overall though first class setting, course & clubhouse

Slow day

This is one of my favourite Dorset courses to play. A gorgeous, challenging 18. You have to carefully judge your distances off the tee with streams and ditches running throughout the course. Unfortunately, we got stuck behind 4 four balls and a round that would usually take us 3hours 30 took nearly 5. Luckily it was a beautiful day.

Great day.

I have visited Dudsbury a few times in the past for drinks and food but this was my first round of golf. The staff member in the golf shop was friendly and helpful, made me feel welcome and wished me luck on my round.

It was a quiet Tuesday afternoon and I had a free hole in front of me and plenty room behind me - plenty of freedom to enjoy the course.

The fairways were well groomed and a joy to play from; the greens were faster than I was used to but quickly adapted to them thanks to the wonderful condition.

Although hilly in places this added to the challenge and not steep enough to make me breathless.

I thoroughly enjoyed my golfing experience from start to finish and would recommend anyone looking for a course should definitely give Dudsbury a call.

Tommy.

Dudsbury - good course but very slow pace

It's a good course but there was a society day going on and it took us (a 2 ball) over 4 and half hours to get round as we were waiting at each hole for players to finish . Just seemed to be all stacked up in front and a few holes where we caught up with the 4 ball in front and then the 4 ball in front of them !

Fantastic Dudsbury

A very warm welcome at the reception from a friendly member of staff. This was followed by a game of golf on what is surely one of the best courses in the country, in terms of lay out and condition. I would recommend this to any person playing the game.
