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.
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 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
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.
Excellent course, greens fantastic, played all 27 holes
cant fault it, great course management highly recommended will return
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.
