Isle of Purbeck Golf Club
The Isle of Purbeck - Purbeck Championship course is a brilliant par 70 course which provides a brilliant and testing round of golf for golfers of all abilities. The course boasts an idyllic location, positioned on a high heathland plateau situated in a nature reserve where you can see many rare plants and birds whilst navigating your way around the course.
Although the Purbeck Championship course measures less than 6,300 yards, it is a challenging course for many reasons and can challenge even the most discerning golfer. Firstly, as the course is situated on high grounds, it is fully exposed to the winds and secondly, there are several long and difficult par 4s as well as a collection of par 3s which are equally as difficult. Make sure that you bring your best golf to this course as wayward shots will not be forgiven here due to strategic bunkering and difficult rough to navigate. This is arguably one of the best courses in Dorset and has scenery to match its interesting and difficult layout as it is often known for its 360 degree panoramic views across the nature reserve and beyond. Make sure that this undulating, fast and difficult course is on your itinerary for your next golf escape to Dorset.

This is a beautifully scenic round of golf and there are many excellent holes which come together to form a brilliant and varied round of golf. The course has been so well designed that the natural contours of the landscape have been effortlessly blended in to create a seamless and interesting course layout.
Throughout the round, there are four par 3s, none of which are longer than 200 yards but all feature plenty of strategically placed bunkers and even with the slightest breeze, these are tricky holes to play and score well on. Arguably, the course’s signature hole is the par 4 5th hole which is simply breathtaking from the tee shot to the final putt with the stunning view of Studland Bay. Although the front nine is trickier than the back nine, you must not let your accuracy drop for the back nine as there are still many hazards and tricky holes to navigate your way around.
This is a stunning course and one that will stay in your mind for long after you leave the 18th hole. After your round, you can enjoy a few drinks and a bite to eat in the clubhouse. There is no doubt that a round here is entirely necessary when you are taking your next golf holiday to Dorset.
