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.

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.

Nice course

Local to me and have played a lot over the years. Can play well all year depending on how busy it?s been. Practice facilities aren?t great but staff are friendly and the course is nice. Plays much better in the summer months. Can be VERY slow pace of play.

Best in the New Forest

The scenery around the course is stunning at this time of year. We had clear blue skies when I played and the low sun coming through the pines around the 16th green was beautiful. The greens are in great condition, fairways too although after the rain there?s been the 15th fairway is a little damp. The 9th is a true challenge at this time of year. Good luck with your par!

There were a number of bunkers under reconstruction and 2 temporary greens. However these issues did not deter from having a great round of Golf.
