What the club says: Our three loops of nine holes (Becton, Needles & Stroller) start and finish close to the clubhouse. Many forms of golfing challenge await the player from the shot over the water to our island green on Needles 9, to links style bump and run shots to the greens close to the coastline. Sea breezes also add to an enjoyable test of golf. Couple this with breathtaking sea views, and a pleasurable experience is guaranteed.



Most Helpful Review

This club, founded in 1897, is situated on the Dorset coastal cliff between Christchurch and Lymington. The current 27 holes are a combination of the original Harry Colt design from 1932 and newer holes which were completed in 1992. There are 3 9hole loops each of which start and finish close to the clubhouse. Many forms of golfing challenge await the player from the shot over the water to the island green on Needles 9, to links style bump and run shots to the greens close to the coastline. Sea breezes and great views also add to an enjoyable test of golf.

The clubhouse is lovely, commanding superb views across the Solent to the Needles on the Isle of Wight, and along to Old Harry Rocks at Swanage. It is also situated overlooking the island green referred to above which can prove to be very entertaining!

Standard green fee for the day is £44 (good value for 27 holes) but the twilight rate of £24 is a bargain. Open events are also available - well run and sociable. - Sep 12 2010

Lovely setting
Lovely setting for the course looking out towards the Isle of Wight. 3 9's that criss-cross each other a bit, so it can be a bit of a challenge to work out where the next tee is. Played Needles/Stroller then Becton. Unfortunately it was the only good weather day forecast that week so all the members had turned out - you alternate on those starting off and those playing their second 9, and was a bit slow to start with due to this. Treated to a friendly welcome both in pro shop and clubhouse. Paid ?60 day rate.

Course in good condition but bunkers full of water from overnight rain and clearly don't drain well. Interesting course with some excellent holes and a good test with the wind off the sea making most holes a challenge.
