Playgolf Bournemouth is an attractive parkland golf course situated on the Christchurch, Bournemouth border. The River Stour runs through the golf course with players crossing the river via a bridge from the 12th to 13th holes. The course is an easy walk with the flat, generous fairways being cleverly protected by numerous bunkers and water hazards. We pride ourselves in NEVER being on temporary greens or tee’s. In the summer the greens are fast and true providing a challenge for golfers of all abilities. The signature hole is the 9th– a 172 yard par 3 with bunkers guarding the right hand side and a huge lake snapping up any balls hit left. Be careful not to be too taken aback by the beauty of the lake and fountain as it will take a very well struck shot to find the putting surface on a well-designed hole that usually plays into the wind. The 18th also provides a great finish. A risk/reward hole that can provide a great birdie chance or ruin a card. The fairway is guarded by another large lake with out of bounds left and a monster bunker right of the fairway. Players must decide how much of the lake to try and cut off, with the longest hitters able to have a go at the green….beware though as this brings both the out of bounds and lake very much into play. Courses on main greens and main tee’s all year round. Golfers can wear relaxed attire i.e. jeans, shorts, sensible footwear etc.
