Very decent municipal

A few nicely designed holes, fairways were a touch barren on other holes, but decent greens especially for the time of year. Would recommend

Improvement

Played this course for the first time in over a year; admit I was worried after some recent reviews. However the greens were in the best form I had ever seen them (I played this course regularly a few years back). The negative was the pace of play, 4.5hrs for a round wasn’t expected, and this was due to no one letting anyone play through. We followed a two ball who were behind two four balls.
This course gets a lot of traffic, so fairways damage was expected but they do need some more work, but you can see the work in progress happening. Well done green keeps

Overpriced for condition of course

Greens covered in sand fairways in poor condition £22 way to much for this course. No warning or price reduction about the the greens.( 7 greens fully covered in at least 5mm of sand). Bar staff friendly but only one draft beer available.

Not recommended

Not advised greens had been treated. Other players tee off too early therefore right up behind us constantly. Needs more organisation.

Would've been the slowest round of golf I've ever played but came in after 9 holes. Wouldn't play a Sunday here any time soon.

Enjoyable days golf

Using the GolfNow app made the booking easy and the staff at the pro shop were all friendly and professional . The course was in OK condition the greens could have been better but as it is a very well used course overall was a very enjoyable day and a good test for all abilities. Would recommend this course to others.

Worst course in dorset!!!

This has to be the worst course in dorset by a mile. The fairways are not playable! They are in a terrible state with some serious ankle breaking holes in you are not careful. The greens are a joke. There are full of holes,dead grass,divets, and the grass on the edges of the greens are longer than the rough.

Me and my friends give this course a go once a yesr in the summer months and it gets worse every year this will be the last time we play here. And for £22 that is a joke. You can play pretty much any course in the area for that money and they are all much better.

Hoped for Better

The greens were in poor condition. Probably caused by Covid-19. The course needed some TLC. The rough was not being managed. I am sure I will play the course again hoping for better!.

Going downhill

Having not played this course for several years i was shocked at the lack of upkeep. The tees are horrendous with litter everywhere and snapped tees in the hundreds. No attempt has been made to repair the holes dug by wild swings.

The greens are hit and miss, patchy at best and its hard to find a true roll on the course.

There wasn't a 150 marker anywhere to be seen, and the signs at the start of each hole were unreadable. If not covered in moss or general dirt, it was graffiti or bird droppings, which for me sums up the effort put into maintenance.

For the money I wouldn't go back until they did a lot of work to restore the place.

This course has great potential, but ........

Sad to say that the course is in a rough condition. The fairways and greens are not by any means up to standard. Over the past years the course has gradulated to a very poor condition.
I wonder what Colin Montgomery would say if he saw it.

Play through

Overall the course is in good condition and no problems from that side of things but the real problems here are with pace of play or probably more course etiquette in front of me as a one ball had a 4 ball holding up a 2 ball holding another 1 ball really the 2 groups should of let us play through. Just doesn't allow you to get any rhythm into game when you have to wait for 5+ mins at every tee

Tees, tees & more tees

Every single tee area is littered with discarded tees. I'm seems obvious that the perpetrators are the club members due to regularity of the offence and the unique tee style. They may be wooden and biodegradable eventually, but the visitor shouldn't have to sweep them to one side just to tee off themselves. It's disrespectful on so many levels, and completely unnecessary. It has nothing to do with effects of Coronavirus because was happening before the pandemic existed.

Also, the greens are in very poor condition and not being maintained, and the fairways have so many uneven channels running in all directions that your ball is constantly bouncing off to one side or the other. It's akin to trying to play golf on a freshly ploughed field.

Unfortunately the course was in quite a poor state, really dry and quite big cracks in the fairways made for some interesting lies. Could do with a good soaking!
