What the club says: Spread over 6002 yards with 18 holes and par 71, Bulbury Woods Golf Course, is as tight as it's tricky and the lush, tree-lined fairways, the unexpected bunkers, twists and turns all help to make playing the Bulbury Woods course an unforgettable experience.

Even though we have rain recently, course is still in good condition. Course staff out maintaining/cleaning bunkers/tees off leaves.

slow
although there was a competition on the play was very slow sometimes 3 groups on one hole..ie one putting out one on the fairway and one waiting to tee off. The bunkers were full of gravel and very little sand. A nice course that just wants a little bit of tweaking

Dave E rated 4 out of 5 - Jun 15 2017

Good range of holes with fine views over Purbecks
A good diversity of holes - some quite challenging with tight drives or a start (or conclusion) near water. Ditches (either across or along the side of a number of holes can be tricky - especially if it's wet.
An attractive woodland course.
Although the bar is often open, on many occasions when I've visited, there hasn't been a chef on duty.

Played on a hot sunny day & surprised how quiet couse was, great for us. Course in good condition but found greens very slow & sandy (groundsmen had been carrying out maintenance). Overall good round on nice course

Lovely course and a warm welcome. Greens a bit bobbly but some interesting holes and a lot of pheasants!!! Excellent bar and great food. Simulator on site to test your skills on the best courses in the world.

Rich W rated 3 out of 5 - Jan 21 2017

A tricky layout with a few deceptively difficult holes make for a long day if you are not on form. Back nine is a bit boring a bit "fieldy" and greens are not the best. Winter play can be muddy under foot but they are open and almost always a tee time available. I will play there again.

Course generally in very good condition and a number or reasonably narrow tree-lined holes are a good test of driving. Lots of leaf litter in areas a bit of distraction. Friendly proshop staff, bar staff indifferent but the outdoor areas of the bar a good place for post-round beverage.

A challenging course because of the narrow fairways. There are loads of ditches to avoid too.

A lovely friendly club with a lot of narrow fairways to challenge your straight play. This is a local course to me which we rarely play in the winter as it is quite boggey

The course is getting better, the work being carried out is slowly working, with the fairways looking the best I have seen them, always a good challenge as many holes are tight from the tee.
Enjoyable round.

Ian P rated 4 out of 5 - Jul 18 2016

Course in good condition. Greens fairly fast and some quite undulating which made them difficult. Clubhouse was organising a wedding in the afternoon for 120 people, so services a little restricted for golfers, but served up an excellent breakfast.

Clubhouse very nice with new terrace but course in poor condition, fairways bare ( as they have been for many years ) and all greens have been heavily sanded and not mentioned when booking.

Main course very nice and variable holes, but green terrible, too much sand, to long and too rough, needed desperate cutting and bunkers to compact sand

Nice enough setup, but the course was in very poor condition, perhaps it's just not the time of year to be playing here. Greens have been hollow tined and where exceptionally long, it was like walking on a sponge and trying to get the ball in the whole was crazy golf. Fairways also not cut for weeks - it's like 1st cut of rough everywhere. Bunkers not raked so the sand is hard and compacted.

Breakfast beforehand was OK but probably wouldn't go for it again.
