Great course and variety of holes

This 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 course

This 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!

An excellent course with a lovely mixture of holes. Although the first isn't the best start - average length straight par 4 with no real danger other than out of bounds down the left, the course quickly gets interesting from the second onwards.

Despite being in the middle of a built-up area it feels like you're in the middle of nowhere for all but a couple of holes, with the only distraction being the occasional plane from Bournemouth airport overhead.

Tree-lined fairways favour straightness rather than length, although underneath pine straw is more common than thick rough, meaning most wayward balls can be found (although there a some notable exceptions!). Although not the longest course, it's exposed position can lead to high winds, which today made some of the 350 yard plus par 4s hard work to reach even with driver - long iron. The holes vary from the straight and flat to a variety of dog-legs and gradients all over the place. Both par 5s are very reachable in two if you're not into wind, and in the drier months a couple of par 4s are driveable for the longer hitter. The only disappointment was the three par 3s - all straightforward (although the 18th has a difficult green, especially if the pin is on the front), and one of which is one of those pointless little 100-odd yard holes that courses seem to stick in when they've run out of space. My only other very slight criticism would be that the greens are pretty much flat in most cases.

Despite the very wet weather here over the last few weeks the course was in excellent condition, the ground still firm underfoot and greens still running well, although as to be expected at this time of year the odd bobble was starting to creep in. The fairways were a little long, although I suspect that was intentional on the part of the greenstaff given the recent weather. The bunkers, in contrast to a lot of local courses over the last few weeks, were in great nick with plenty of fluffy sand, a pleasure to play out of (and I did find a few!).

Green fees are fair for the standard of the course, as are the membership rates. Tee times are restricted for visitors, especially at weekends.

Overall, well worth a visit, and certainly a club to consider if you're looking for membership locally.
