Overall course in good condition. However, following heavy rains all the bunkers were full of water, up to a foot deep, making them unplayable. As it was a weekend no attempt was made to drain them.

Improving course. Very long driving and Greens are huge in most cases. Woodland course is tricky with bushes quite extensive.

good course

Not a bad course to visit as you can to any 2 of the nine hole courses which changes things up a bit. The fairways were a bit scruffy, but other than that ok.

The course was not in it's best

Not as well manicured as I've seen it. The greens where in very good condition but very tricky some of the bunkers could go with a bit more sand overall the course could do with a little more TLC.

I really like Dorset golf and country club. It?s good value for money, varied across the 3 9s and a good challenge but also gives you the ability to score well. The blue tees though I have yet to try at over 7000 yards!

For a January booking the course was in very good condition. Only thing to consider is that it is in the middle of country side and subject to 'invasion' by wildlife. The greens, although in good condition had been heavily watered before we played. This meant that the greens were covered in footprints, clubhead marks and various wild animal footprints which made putting a bit of a lottery.

Good round

we enjoyed our round at this course, looked wonderful as we played along, and the course for the time of year seemed to be in very good condition. Also with a range of high and mid handicappers is was a good test for all.

Great course

Great winter deal 18 holes coffee and bacon baguette for ?25
The course was in good condition for this time of year, my only neg would be
not enough next tee signs/arrows around so you have to look around for them to see where the next tee is.
Open forgiving course with long holes will be going back in the summer for sure.
