Review for Parkstone

Reviewer Score:


Stunning; revisiting Parkstone for the first time in 25 years have to say recent reviews are not wrong. The conditioning of the whole course was excellent with quick greens, beautifully presented tees, fairways and bunkers and blessed with banks of heather; I can't think of a course that I have played that was in better condition so full credit to the greenstaff. The course is very much heathland and has 5nr par 5's and 5nr par 3's which provides much variety, and although not long it is punishing if you are off-line. Changes in elevation with a number of elevated tees are a real feature. No real stand out holes as all were good, although I thought the par 3 14th seemed like a bit of a fill-in, after the superb par 4 13th. Fantastic par 3 finishing hole. Food and clubhouse also excellent and only negative was a 5 hour round. I prefer Parkstone to Ferndown and Broadstone, and it is very close to getting a 6 ball, but it probably just lacks a few tough par 4's. A great place for a days golf
