  • 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 tranquillity 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!
