Incredible greens!

I played both the main Old Course and the separate 9 hole Alliss Course as part of a society. We played the 9 hole course in the morning as a warm up, although similar in style and clearly some of the same bunker improvements from the main course have taken place. It wasn't quite as well manicured as the main course, with tees needing a cut and greens incredibly slow. The main course however was in fantastic condition. The fairways were still showing some signs of wear from the dry summer last year, but with preferred lies in place and with the fairways clearly being watered you could always find a good spot and take divots easily. The greens are the main course were absolutely flawless, so more than make up for the fairways still needing a little more time to be their best.

Pretty heathland

Pro gave £15 off as unable to use trolleys, left a good taste: very different to west hill who charged £60 for a very wet course. Very pretty course; lovely pine trees throughout.

Really worth a visit, excellent 9 holes

The Alliss course is a 9 hole course set along side the main Ferndown Championship course, has nice fairways and excellent greens but you do need to go around twice to know where to go, finding the next tee and with your shots.
Great afternoons golf, shame about the members almost making you feel you shouldn't be there.

After having a family holiday in the area, It only seemed right to play this course as its on my TOP 100 Courses in the UK. The course was in fantastic condition, they have recently refurbished every single bunker on the course and layered the bunker lips, and planted heather on top. Greens were immaculate and running true.

To have all of the bunkers being refurbished and having two temporary greens really put a dampener on this course. Such a shame.

One of the premier courses in Dorset. Played on a very cold day !!! There is a lot of on course work going on with most of the bunkers undergoing complete refurbishment so were unplayable, it will be great to play this coming summer.
