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.
