I’ve visited Dorset Golf and Country Club a few times and have always had a really good time. With three loops of nine to choose from it's very easy to spend a pleasant day there. Courses are always a challenge, the hospitality is great.

Always enjoy playing here

Considering all the rain flooding a lot of the bunkers the course in general was very good with the greens running true.

Great Resort

Really great resort which we were lucky enough to visit last week. 8 of us stayed in one of their Scandinavian lodges which was superb. Course was brilliant, made up of 3 separate 9s. Only issue with the course was that the bunkers were pretty unplayable and need work. Food and service was excellent.

Good course worth visiting

Fairly open course, so forgiving. In very good condition and most enjoyable. It was quite a slow round with 4-ball games ahead, and I have had this before on a number of occasions here. Greens good but disappointed that golfers ahead hadn't been repairing pitch marks. Bunkers are many! And bunger sand fairly poor and having to play off very compacted surface. There's a fair amount of walking between holes, but 3 separate 9-holes to play.

Stayed here for a three day golf break and played all three courses. I found all of them very challenging, particularly the Lakeland course. Miss the fairways and you will be lucky to find your ball as the rough is exceedingly long in places. High and medium handicappers should note that there are a few holes where you need to carry at least 130 yards off the tee to stay in play.

Great venue

Had a 2 night 3 round stay in a lodge. The facilities are superb and the courses interesting. The greens were huge and very tricky with so many slopes but all were in great condition. The courses were challenging with various obstacles and many bunkers. The rough was a challenge and ditches in awkward spots as well as trees. Most greens were heavily protected by bunkers but these were the only let down and need more work plus sand in them as very compacted. Food and service were great with friendly staff. Would highly recommend going there. 3 different 9?s so played all twice. The lodge we stayed in was huge and well equipped including a sauna

Nice course

The woodland course, although shorter, is more challenging because of the trees. There is always trouble lurking there.

Slightly disappointed

Course was not in best of conditions, greens were fair but very fast, plenty of bare patches, areas around greens were kept to decent standard, bunkers, some were fine, others hard as rock, fairways pick and place which was good as they looked like a Sunday League football pitch, trees unforgiving (which I sort of expect) but needed cutting so as at least you could get a stance, all in all I was a bit disappointed, fortunately I hadn't paid as it was a freebie but if I had I would have come away feeling hard done by.
