Heatwave

I used to be a member here but the last time I played, the course was in poor condition and felt unloved. Not so this time. The course was in great condition considering the drought and whilst the fairways are all burned up, the greens are good. Unexpected bounces made play challenging but I only brought a 3 wood so was forced to leave the driver out of the bag - good move!

My only reservation was the pace of play - we were a 2 ball head up by another 2 ball throughout the round. Just poor etiquette.

Test yourself

Play it twice if you can (I did) as the second time you realise you can be more aggressive. A very challenging and interesting course with stunning views. The price you pay for the view is the wind which only adds to the challenge. I must admit I read a previous review which was quite damning and wasn't sure what to expect, but the course is as you wood expect from a foreland type course which I thought was in very good order. The only points that let it down was things like the housekeeping around the course and the tired nature of some of the outbuildings but things doesn't affect play, just the perception before you tee off. I played at 4 o clock in Sept for £25 was the last one on the course , so pace was good and went round in just under 3 hours. My reward was seeing a herd of deer at dusk strolling along the second fairway. The lady and gentleman in the clubhouse were very welcoming , but I didn't use the bar as only had a short holiday pass from the missus. Would highly recommend , but you will need an app or strokesaver and a few more spare balls than usual. But you'll be glad you did.

Windy weather

Stunning scenery and a tough challenge

Isle of Purbeck will give you some of the best views of any golf course in the UK. Overlooking Poole harbour, the views on a clear day are stunning. But this is a really tough golf course that, even after playing a couple of times, takes some learning. It plays quite like a links and is windy even on a calm day. There are a number of blind shots but the marker posts are all good lines to follow from the tees. The greens ae typically links-like; slow uphill and quick downhill, with the wind playing a part. Bunkers are of high quality, adding up to make this a good quality course. If you play it after 2pm as well, it is a bargain at £25 for a round.

The only complaint would be the lack of yardage markers on the course. My phone GPS app wasn't working for some reason and I was pretty much playing blind. There are 200 and 150 yard markers but nothing else, making judgement of approach shots from inside 130 yards very difficult. This is the one area that would improve the golfers experience of an otherwise outstanding course.

What a shame....

They do not care about that wonderful an unique course at all. The Fairways are in a bad condition as well as the really challenging and well designed greens.

Especially the greens were in a horrible condition - worse like wintergreens.

The staff in the bureau is unfriendly and impolite to guests.

The range and the balls are joke. Some balls are older then me...

But the really nice and friendly pro has got a Trackman - they should invest on range balls and new mats first.

First and last time for me, but i hope that someone of them reads this and changes something, because it could be on of the best courses in England with a bit passion for care.

Stunning scenery

Visually stunning. A relentless test in a 20mph+ prevailing wind, very unforgiving. Recommend a trip onto the white tee on the 5th. Number 6 was tough into the wind.

The majesty of the Isle of Purbeck

Great course, fantastic views. Shame about the weather but what can you expect at the end of February?

It was 3 degrees centigrade when we teed off and most of the fairways had surface water. It was windy (20-30 mph). However, the design of the course (some lovely holes) and the views offset the poor conditions.

Friendly staff and good beer on the 19th were greatly appreciated.

It was pointed out to us that, if we had booked directly with the club, we would have had a better deal.
