What the club says: An 18 Hole Woodland and Parkland course located 20 minutes north of Bournemouth on the A31. It is a flat course with plenty of features and wildlife. Great facilities including large shop, floodlit driving range and bar/restaurant.

Good challenging course in good condition

Good challenging course in good condition.
Location of the greens not always apparent.
Game slightly spoilt by quite a few young players in buggies who were a bit short on etiquette.

Short Course, testing but confidence building

The course although short in yardage, it testing enough to challenge a mid handicapper like me, but at the same time has plenty of Birdie/Par opportunities to help build confidence. I usually play as a 2 -ball and comfortably complete a round in just over 3 hours. Staff are great, course is inexpensive would highly recommend.

Good course and quite challenging for a relatively short one. It is however very popular and can therefore get quite busy on occasion.

Lovely Course - was under maintenance

went before reconstruction and course was above average. During changes parts of the course were unbelievably inaccessible (this was during winter).

Could do with better signage. (next tee, hole layout, ect.)

Good Short Course

Although not long this course provides quite a few challenges in terms of ditches, streams, ponds, woods and gorse.

Cheap, but short and not in great condition

An odd little course. Only cost £20 for 18 holes so it is good value, but it is inferior to other local courses.
Some very short par 3's made things difficult for me, playing only my second round in the last 15 years, as even my PW was too much club.
The course isn't in great condition, however the rough is forgivingly short.
The driving range is very goof though - many bays with trackman.
