Overview
More
A visit here is a must for all golfers; the beginner is catered for on the 9 hole Dene course and the Purbeck Championship course proves an exciting test for even the most accomplished golfer. The Club dates back to 1892 and among the past owners who were responsible for the extension to 27 holes were Enid Blyton, the legendary writer of children's books and her husband Dr Darrell-Waters. The courses are built on heathland and are set within a nature reserve where many rare plants can be seen as well as rare birds. The restaurant has a well deserved reputation for excellent fare and very good value. Do not forget to visit our outstanding Restaurant, bar food available in the lounge area, fine dining in our restaurant with views of Poole harbour and the Jurassic coast.

A great venue for medium sized societies with excellent facilities, food and drink. Very friendly and helpful staff and a golf course now in much better condition. Of course good weather helps a lot on this very exposed and hilly course.More
