What the club says: Knighton Heath Golf Club is situated just north of Poole and it is a fine heath land golf course noted for its warm welcome to members and visitors alike, offering some of the best golf in Dorset. The course measures 6065 yards from the back, (blue), tees but do not let this fool you into thinking it will be easy! You will need to plot your way around the course which is heavily tree-lined with some narrow fairways. The greens are always in superb condition and the course presents an excellent test of golf for players of all standards. The ladies course measures 5474 yards.

Great views & interesting holesEnjoyed a first-time twilight visit on Saturday evening for ?30 which is good value I think. Great weather helped but the views were really good and I expect it could be pretty windy as the course is quite high up and some holes are fairly exposed. The course generally presented nicely with heather, majestic pines and some gorse too, and though the fairways were pretty rugged most of the time it didn't affect the experience. Greens were good without being anything special but lots of subtle slopes makes for some challenging reads. Varied layout with some interesting holes. We had the place to ourselves but otherwise seemed friendly towards visitors. I don't live locally and there are so many other good courses to try in the area, but I would return.

Great course and variety of holesThis is the second time I've played the course. I really enjoyed it this time as I was playing with some members. The greens were great and on some of the greens the breaks were really difficult to read. Plenty of hills in places to get the heart pumping.

Challenging heathland courseThis is a tough course, due to narrow fairways, lined with pine trees, and heather on many of the slopes. Lots of fun to play, however, as very varied and a good combination of par 3s,4s and 5s. The 18th is a tricky Par 3, hitting over a road, with the green surrounded by bunkers so you can't relax until you're in the clubhouse!
Excellent courseGreens were well looked after and fast. Lovely views and some very challenging holes. Would highly recommend.

Played just after all the bad weather, the course was in excellent condition in the circumstances, the course always offers the mid handicap players a real challenge, the three of us thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon.
