Very poor

This course is probably the worse I have played in a very long time. Round took nearly 4hrs 45min because people in front refused to let people through! Kept waiting on almost every hole! Course was predominantly poor and totally uninteresting! Greens were absolutely shocking! I think I’ve putted better on some fairways! Tee boxes were like semi rough. Fairways almost non existent!! Hospitality was very poor! Overall a real SHOCKER!!! Don’t waste your time or money!!!

Where am I!

The greens were excellent and there are some stunning views, however some of the fairways are unkept.

Really enjoyable.

Course was in really good condition. Layout was ok, except a hole playing across each other. Other than that it was fine. A few really good looking holes. The par 4 4th, hitting down through the trees, then it open up to a green surrounded by trees and the par 3 15th hitting over a water feature to a multi level green were particularly memorable. The greens were in very good shape. Only one bad thing if I can even call it that, was that a few of the tee boxes weren’t quite ready yet but it wasn’t long after the course had not long re opened after covid though.
Definitely would play this course again and will in the near future.

Surprisingly good

Never played Wareham before but was really impressed with the condition of the course given the recent weather and time of year. It is short but a lot of blind tee shots keep it interesting.

Some challenging holes

This is a good Course, with a variety of good and demanding holes. The back 9 is not for the faint hearted as there a lot of hilly parts. The day I played the greens had been re-done and it was hard work getting a good line to put the ball. Recommend you have a go but get a motocaddie

Lovely course

Challenging in places but great fun, maybe the fairways need the grass cutting in places.

A fine course still suffering a bit from 2018 drought

I like this club and the course, and try to play here whenever I am in the area. All the essentials are unchanged from my previous experience but 4 fairways are still operating under "preferred lies" because of the unrepaired damage from last year's drought. As we are now in mid-summer I expect fixing this issue will have to wait until the winter. Still worth a visit.

Let down

Disappointed to turn up to be told the back 9 was closed and half the holes were on temporary greens, clubs fault or golf now? Lack of communication.

Windy weather

Pretty dry despite recent rain

This is my third time here this year and I have grown to like this course a lot. The first 6 holes are relatively flat and amongst trees. From 7 to 15 are are up and down,, 9 to 14 actually on the downs. 16 to 18 are back to the trees. So a lot of variety and quite challenging in the wind. Course is well-drained and is still playing as in the summer with plenty of run-on.

Slightly quirky but enjoyable

First few holes are straightforward but it gets trickier from 7 onwards. Also a bit of criss-crossing at the start. Once on the Downs the scenery is excellent and the golf is more challenging. Course is still recovering from the dry spell. Brown grass predominates but now a bit damp underfoot.
