One of the best known and finest courses on the South Coast

“There is no better place” – Reg Whitcombe 1938 Open Champion

Parkstone Golf Club is one of Dorset’s premier Heathland courses and makes up 1 of Bournemouth’s “big 3” courses, alongside Ferndown and Broadstone. The course has been ranked inside the top 100 courses in Britain by both Golf Monthly and Golf World Magazines, boasting mature heathland surroundings filled with lakes, mature pines and a wide variety of wildlife, alongside stunning views over Poole Harder and out towards the Isle of Purbeck.

Parkstone Golf Club is a delightful course located on a beautiful sandy tract of undulating Heathland, many of the fairways are lined with old pines and heather which become even more beautiful in springtime when the rhododendrons bloom, and the greens are immaculately kept and tricky to read. The location of the course means that it enjoys all the characteristics of Heathland golf with links influences from its seaside location, and when these are combined it creates a unique golfing experience that you wont easily forget.

The golf at Parkstone is more than just the serene surroundings, it poses a varied challenge that uses all the natural contours, heather and pines to create a course that requires accurate shots and tactical approaches, as is the case with any course that has a James Braid influence. Although the course measures quite short at 6,300 yards it is sufficiently challenging for golfers of all levels and everyone that visits Parkstone walks away with incredible memories.

If you are looking for a unique and tranquil golfing break in the wonderful Dorset countryside, look no further than Parkstone Golf Club!

Course Overview

First opened in 1984, Meyrick Park Golf Club is a stunning course set upon 120 acres of undulating parkland, enjoying fantastic views of the surrounding Dorset countryside from many of the holes, and a design that offers a number of distinctive and memorable holes. Built within scenic parkland, the course features verdant, tree lined fairways, undulating terrain, and one of the toughest opening holes you are likely to play. The first is a par-3 that measures 240 yards from the whites, Peter Alliss described this hole as “One of the toughest opening holes around”,and it’s easy to see why. From the tee you face a tree lined fairway leading to a green that has been cut into the hillside 240 yards away, on the other side of a small valley. You will need to be at your best for this tee shot if you want to find yourself on the green. The one many consider to be the feature hole at Meyrick Park is the par-5 14th, a distinctive hole where you will have to avoid numerous bunkers dotted across the left side of the fairways, and a tough shot through trees to an uphill green.

What the course may lack in length it makes up for in variety, with a nice mix of dog legs and elevation changes it creates an enjoyable challenge for golfers of all levels, and thanks to the sandy soil underneath, the course remains in a playable condition throughout most of the year.

    We are extremely proud of the service we provide and a large part of this is ensuring our client’s money is safe. Our practices comply with the 2018 package travel directive meaning that your money is safe with both ourselves and the venues your choose to visit.

    The money for your golf break is paid into a trust account run by an independent partner, so you have peace of mind that no matter what happens, your money is being looked after.

  • What happens if we can’t go on our planned trip?

    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.

  • Why book with a tour operator?

    Good question, could you not do this all yourself? The answer is yes you could. You are able to locate the ideal hotel with the accessibility you need to the clubs you plan to play. You could go back and forth with your target venues and line up the tee times.  You could also contact each venue individually to advise them of group number changes and requests during the build up to your trip.

    Alternatively you could;

    – Talk to us about the trip you are planning.

    – Receive quotes for perfectly crafted package meeting your ideal requirements.

    – Secure the booking with small deposits staged in a way to make your life easier as an organiser.

    – Have your funds fully insured and independently held by PTS, our client trust provider.

    – Have changes made to whole tours with just one call or email.

    – Receive exclusive extras such as free places.

    – Pay less with our packages than going direct to venues.

    Why can we do this?

    Quite simply we have spent years (since 2015) forging strong relationships with hotel, golf club and golf resort venues across the South West. We are the expert tour operator for the region and are know for our high quality and personal service to our clients (just see our Google and TrustPilot reviews).

  • Who uses Golf South West?

    The majority of our clients are UK based domestic travellers. We deal with groups of any size, from single travellers and couples, to large golf societies.

    We also are the favoured golf DMC for the South West of England and preferred regional partner of Golf Tourism England. We regularly work with tour operators from Europe, America and elsewhere to provide bespoke tour packages allowing overseas travellers to experience the beautiful West Country.

  • 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.

  • Why are golf resort prices the same as elsewhere?

    Put simply, all tour operators work from the same contracted rate card when it comes to stay and play golf resort packages. When it comes to golf tours, that is a different matter, but golf resorts are a level playing field.

    If you find a vastly different price, it’s likely you’ve been misquoted and usually this does come back to bite.

    The question this poses is why book a stay and play golf break with Golf South West if you can book direct or with one of the large operators and receive the same price?

    Benjamin Franklin once said “The bitterness of poor quality remains long after
    the sweetness of low price is forgotten.”

    We have a small team so booking through us means you receive a personal service. You are more than just a number to us, we are a tour operator where you will likely get to deal with the same contact throughout the process, who will get to know you and your group and respond efficiently to your queries.

    We know our venues and the people who work there. This ensures a smooth process from initial enquiry to the end of your stay.

    Financially you have an extra layer of protection as your money is securely stored in an independent trust account and is fully insured when it is released to the venue(s) you are visiting.

    We are fortunate to have some exclusive “extras” with selected venues across the South West. We offer 1 in 16 free on every trip AND run an exclusive voucher scheme for our stay and play client bookings.

    We often feel we add further value to our clients when it comes to our bespoke golf tour packages, but you can rest assured that when making a stay and play golf resort booking, Golf South West will offer you an extremely high level of service, financial protection and may even offer you a saving or an exclusive extra!
