Great Course with Spectacular views

Very enjoyable links type course, in fairness weather was beautiful, I am sure the course would be a different kettle of fish in adverse weather conditions.
Some spectacular views and the par 3 6th is a joy.
Would definitely play again if ever in Dorset.

Keep on the fairways the rough will frustrate you as very difficult and sometimes impossible to get out of. Careful with your driver.

Worth every penny we spent. Some good feature holes but worth playing just to play the sixth. Stunning views and very well kept.

Post covid jaunt

Really like this course. Played it a few times before and it seems a well run club with some great views, some challenging holes and a good layout. Marked down slightly because of the state of the greens which were poor. However, bearing in mind the covid lockdown preceded by the wet winter, it’s no surprise that the ground staff are playing catch-up. Wish my golf was as good as the course yesterday, but alas....

What a golf Course

If you are in the Bridport / West Bay area , a keen golfer , you have to play this course , every hole will challenge your ability and max out your emotion of joy when you try to tame this course. The surrounding landscape is breath taking and you feel lucky to be alive ! The signature par 3 hole is a bolt of out of the blue ...something we were not expecting ....even better feeling when you at least par it. We will be back to play again, Certainly the best course I have played on and I have played most of the East Devon / Dorset area.golf courses , What a golf course !

A cold visit to Dorset

Popped across the border from Devon to play this one. Picked a clear but a cold windy day to play. Course conditions were good and greens quite quick. As first timers a course map to go with the provided hole guide would have helped to find our way round. A good days golf and look forward to going back on a warmer day.
