Good Test

Although not a particularly long course it provides a good test with ponds, streams, ditches woods and many bushes.

Nice course

First time to this course, nice flat course. My only issue is the first 3 holes you have to be on your toes as the driving range is close by, a couple of balls came are way but no shouts of fore to alert us, the other 15 holes were splendid to play, will definitely return to play.
Club house bar was great, food we had was quickly served very busy place

Good Course

A comparatively short but challenging 18 hole course presenting ponds, ditches, trees and bushes requiring to be overcome to achieve a reasonable score.

Tricky little track

Fairways a bit scrubby in places, but overall good value for a knock round

Club and clubhouse staff very friendly

Challenging Short Course

This course is well maintained and presents plenty of challenges arising from trees, bushes, ditches and ponds. It could accurately be described a tight course where accuracy is required to score reasonably.

Small but Challenging

A good value and well maintained course with a mix of par 3s,4s and 5s. Although not long the holes present numerous challenges with hedges, trees, ditches and ponds which can be testing for even low handicappers. Staff are friendly and efficient and the catering and bar facilities are very good.

Lovely Day Out

Ferndown Forest was a lovely course ideal for my group of average golfers, we were met with a very friendly greeting in the fantastic golf shop and again in the bar after our round where we all enjoyed a meal. I would recommend to any group looking for a flat, easy walking course that will challenge your game.

Flat course but you need to be straight

A very friendly club which is being developed significantly by the current owner with paths for buggies. Many of the areas around the greens have been revamped. The clubhouse has just been extended such that it has doubled its' capacity.
