Challenging Course with Spectacular Views

I've been looking forward to playing this course for several years, coordinating the other playing partners being the only factor delaying the experience.

I was advised to play when wind speeds were low, which was an important selection date, and good advice. The weather was beautiful and better than expected on the day, and this further enhanced the spectacular views over Poole Harbour and Brownsea Island.

Probably the most difficult course I've played due to the high risk of lost balls when a shot doesn't go to plan, but familiarity would probably make it easier with future rounds.

What a course!!

It's clear to see the course has suffered over the winter with all the rain but in my opinion it's has now turned a corner for the better.
The course layout itself is amazing and a true test of golf. The greens were running slow but true. The fairways have had some work done on them and the grass is now starting to come back.

All in all I would say that the Isle of Purbeck has just made it into my top 10 courses ever!!!

Beautiful views shame about the condition

First of all the tees and greens were in very good condition BUT the fairways were bare very little grass and placing to help you get a lie. There are a lot of blind shots. This could be a great golf course but it needs a lot of TLC to get it back.

Isle Of Purbeck

We played this course as my father used to be a member many years ago. The course was very tricky & there are many holes that you have to hit good drives to stay in the hole.
Overall it was a very enjoyable experience, and the staff in the bar afterwards were chatty & friendly.
I would definitely recommend this course to anyone.
PS the views are spectacular.

Beautiful Location

Amazing location! Greens were in poor condition and generally the course needs some TLC to bring it upto to where it should! Course is a great layout very in tight in need to be driving straight off the tee m, places definitely recommend a purchasing a stroke saver if you've never played here before. Hopefully the course condition improves soon as its such amazing place to play golf in.

Isle of Purbeck - playing beautifully

Isle of Purbeck is playing beautifully again. If you are luckily enough to get a chance to visit you absolutely should. They’ve recently treated the greens so it will be just about perfect by the end of April.
