Course Review

Described by Peter Alliss as “The best kept secret in Dorset”, the course is one of the oldest in the country.

Constructed on downland, the fairways are undulating and although hole 3 does have a short sharp hill, all others are easy walking. Four holes are played within Ashley Woods, ancient woodland carpeted with bluebells in May. Being natural chalk downland, the course drains very quickly and remains playable in all but the most extreme weather. The course is rarely closed for long, and trolleys have only been banned for four days during the last ten years.

The par 70 course is 6270 yards long with some ‘open’ drives and some requiring more accuracy. It is a good test of golf for all levels of ability.


From M27 - follow A31 westbound towards Poole At Wimborne follow the B3073 until signs that show the B3082 to Blandford The course is situated 8 miles north of Wimborne From M4 follow A350 southbound to Blandford Forum then follow B3082 to Wimborne The course is 15 miles south east of Blandford From Dorchester A354 follow signs to Blandford Forum and then follow signs B3082 to Wimborne
