What the club says: This magnificent heathland course is consistently ranked among the top 100 courses in the British Isles by Golf World. It dates back to 1892 and the original 18 holes were extended to 27 under Enid Blyton's ownership. It has great coastal views across The Solent to the Isle of Wight and if you fancy arriving at the course in style, there is a ferry that can take you to the course across the water.

Not that good

The course unfortunately was not in a good condition. The fairways were very poor as were the greens. The club still want for people to pay top price when really they should lower it when the course is in this sort of condition.

Nice course

Had a society day there, love to play it again, now I know what lies around the corner !!! Difficult course got to think about each hole, due to the dry weather like all courses at present ground was very hard. Word of warning, keep it on the fairway !!! As the gorse and heather takes no prisoners !

Has some of the most stunning views you will see on a course especially on the front 9. A challenge which is made harder when you miss fairways if the wind gets up shot and club selection is very important.

Don’t play if windy

Played this course in gale force winds. It made for a very difficult and long round not helped by the dry conditions with the fairways like a table top. Choose when to play carefully and stay at home if it’s windy.

Played here last Friday after hearing good things and wasn't disappointed. Lovely course which is tough but not unfair with some of the best views you will find on a golf course. Greens in very good condition which considering the recent lack of rain is impressive. The post round pint in the clubhouse overlooking Poole harbour is a massive bonus as well. Will definitely return.

Stunning views and Challenging

this is a gem of a course in a stunning area, gorse bushes, bunkers and rolling fairways will challenge your every shot. I need of some attention to the facilities and course but the staff are very friendly and the welcome warm. food good, drink wet, course hard but fun!

Really great day out, the course is challenging and in excellent condition, hitting the Green on the par 3 11th is a real thrill you don't want to miss it!, and with the views across Poole harbour it all adds up to a very good experience,

Stunning scenery and a tough challenge

Isle of Purbeck will give you some of the best views of any golf course in the UK. Overlooking Poole harbour, the views on a clear day are stunning. But this is a really tough golf course that, even after playing a couple of times, takes some learning. It plays quite like a links and is windy even on a calm day. There are a number of blind shots but the marker posts are all good lines to follow from the tees. The greens ae typically links-like; slow uphill and quick downhill, with the wind playing a part. Bunkers are of high quality, adding up to make this a good quality course. If you play it after 2pm as well, it is a bargain at £25 for a round.
The only complaint would be the lack of yardage markers on the course. My phone GPS app wasn't working for some reason and I was pretty much playing blind. There are 200 and 150 yard markers but nothing else, making judgement of approach shots from inside 130 yards very difficult. This is the one area that would improve the golfers experience of an otherwise outstanding course.
