What the club says: This course, designed by the internationally renowned Donald Steel is set along the River Crane. It features the contours and lakes of the rolling countryside and is named after the majestic river, which comes into play on many of the holes. The course was opened for play in 1992 and the tricky parkland layout is less than a 30-minute drive from the centre of Bournemouth encompassing wonderful features of the surrounding Dorset countryside.

Mind the rough

The fairways are fairly generous with a secondary cut. Go any further ouch!
Course in very good condition with the front nine of more interest than the back but overall worth a go.

A rusty round after Lockdown!!!!! Good to get back out on the course again even if it was a bad score, the course was in good condition as it hasn't been used for weeks!!!! And it was fairly quiet. Club house was closed obviously.

Fantastic New Forest golf

I've played this course several times now as a reciprocal and I really enjoy it. Nice long holes where there are natural hazards but not so much that they leave you in fear of letting it rip. The first are trim and the subsoil will enable you to take a divot without breaking your wrist. You do get the odd hoof mark on the greens but in general the ponies staff off them. Give it s try. You won't be disappointed.
