Poor condition and far far too busy

We played today as we were local on holiday
At first glance it looked great, teed off and it was empty apart from a 1ball in front of us
Then it got bad, the fairways were awful.. appreciate it had rained a lot this week but they fairways were like the rough
Greens were the slowest I’ve ever played and every bunker was full of water..
it’s purely down to overuse.. too many people there too many society’s to ever be in a good condition!!
First nine we flew round then hit the 10th and the clubhouse let 3 groups of women off who looked like they never picked up a club before today.. didn’t let people play through because “we just let a one ball though”
Poor planning basically by the pro shop, no thought and no etiquette at all!
I wouldn’t come back and wouldn’t recommend this
It’s up there with the worst condition course I’ve played at.

Slow slow slow

We had to wait for an hour between our two nine holes then it still took nearly three hours to play nine holes not what we expected we would not play there again.

Golfing Heaven

Yes the weather was perfect. Yes I played well but this was how all golf clubs should be.

17 testing, well designed, superbly maintained holes - more of the 18th later

The tees, greens, fairways and importantly for a visitor - on course signage, parking, catering were top class.

Reservations - As a first time visitor the road signs at the correct turning signposted the "East Dorset GC" so I drove past for many miles.

Finally - the 18th hole was a big disappointment, having enjoyed 17 interesting, challenging and picturesque holes, to finish with a dead straight par 4 from a scruffy tee aiming towards a line of golf buggies was anti climactic - but as they say, " Nothing is perfect except God " and this was as near to a perfect days golf as I have enjoyed in my near 70 years.

Great course

Great course to play . Unfortunately it was heavy wind and rain today so made the course play a little harder but we all need a challenge. So no complaints on our part

Nice course not good with teetimes

Arrived at club who had no idea of our pre booked tee time. The golf shop pro was superb and managed to get us in 40 mins after our original tee time on provision of our booking reference. It was the only available time left on the day otherwise it would have been a wasted day. Won't be using tee times again

Great round

The course was in very good condition, have never played this course before but it was very enjoyable and gives you a good opportunity to card a good score. The greens in particular were very well maintained considering the rain of late. Didn't use the bar after but looked busy. Will definitely play here again.

Great Course

Played this course on one of the best days of the year so far and had a great day. The course is a bit out of the way but has great facilities. We played a three ball all of varying handicaps and everyone found parts of the course challenging. The only downside is that some holes are very tight with other golfers playing close by so if you are a nervous golfer you should consider this. Will be returning at the closest opportunity.
