The Dorset Golf Club

Course overview

Lying at the heart of a special site of scientific interest, Dorset Golf & Country Club affords golfers a certain air of tranquility as you twist and turn through the forest.

The resort boasts 27 holes of championship golf that includes a mix of Parkland, Lakeland, and Woodland layouts, all designed by legendary designer Martin Hawtree, who regularly consults on Open courses for the R&A.

The Lakeland & Parkland are the longest of the 3 9 hole loops and feature water on no less than half of the holes. The Woodland 9 are a little shorter but twists through the Rhododendron Forest, offering a beautiful and unique experience, looking particularly special in May & June.

The courses are renowned for their fantastic drainage. It is often said that the courses play with target golf conditions in the winter and bare their teeth with a links-style feel in the summer months.

The courses have 4 sets of tees with the longest combination measuring out at over 7,000 yards, making it one of the longest courses in Dorset. Since its opening in 1991, the course has had many claims to fame, including having Justin Rose as the course record holder briefly after a memorable 69.

Ranked inside the top 150 courses in England, if you are looking for something a little unique, whether a day visit or full stay & play golf break, The Dorset Golf Resort is well worth a look!

    Deposits are non-refundable, but they are transferable to a new date or break. We aim to be as flexible as possible and will treat each situation on a case by case basis.

  • Can we make changes to our break?

    Managing a group can be a thankless task and changes to the group leading up to your break are an accepted element. We make changes as stress free as possible (just see our reviews for evidence of this!). Changes can be made up to 6 weeks prior to your break. Some changes are unavoidable so for legitimate reasons we will endeavour to make last minute changes after this period, but as we would have paid our venues at this point, this would be at the discretion of the venue(s) you are visiting.

  • How are package prices displayed on our website?

    Prices on our our website are displayed in two ways. The first is on our Resort pages where pricing tables show the from prices for low, mid and high season golf stay and play package rates at golf resort venues.

    The second is on our example tour package pages. There are often 4 prices shown here, two for low season and two for high season. The struck through price typically shows the highest price the tour can be and is often active over weekends in that season. The offer price is typically a mid week price.

    Every tour quote we offer is bespoke and will vary based on a number of factors including the date, availability, group size, room type, time of day for the tee time, etc… Our package pricing is a guide to the cost of the package and is not a firm price. Please enquire for an exact cost.

    We aim to provide as accurate a price as possible and therefore try to avoid using shoulder/mid season pricing or twilight green fee rates when displaying rates. You may find an intermediate price for breaks in months of April & October at certain venues.
