What a fantastic modern course. Built in an idyllic setting, it winds its way through beautiful natural Dorset countryside, with plenty of nature and wildlife to admire. No two holes are the same, with numerous water hazards, many deep vast bunkers and plenty of trees to navigate your way around. Stoke index 1 and 2 are extremely testing holes, both demanding a carefully placed tee shot to leave mid to long iron approaches. The par 5's are all spectacular, with the stand out hole being no.2 which requires an approach shot to a island green with water on 3 sides. It's a classy course and it keeps you interested all the way through. This could arguably be the finest non-heathland inland course in England, and I highly recommend playing it if you are given the opportunity.
