Designed by Donald Steel, who provided the master plan for the modern St Andrews, this is a 6,904 yard par 71 championship golf course.It has been the venue for many prestigious events, including the PGA Europro Tour as seen on Sky Sports and the BMW PGA Order of Merit Championship as well as the EGU McGregor Tournament. The course is set in 160 acres of beautiful Dorset countryside rolling gently down to the River Stour. The Clubhouse with its south facing elevated position affords superb panoramic views. Streams meander gently through the course under Purbeck stone bridges linking the nine lakes with the river. The greens have been constructed to USGA specification and are sand based, well drained and receptive. They are protected by large bunkers and water hazards. A feature hole is the 16th where the green is over two lakes: the more aggressive the drive the greater the reward.
