Golf courses near Swanage

Isle of Purbeck Golf Club

The Isle of Purbeck Golf Club is an exceptionally well-kept traditional golf club set in the heart of Purbeck. Here you can enjoy a game whilst taking in the remarkable views over Brownsea Island, Bournemouth and the Solent. Each hole provides the golfer with a unique view and challenge – however, the fifth tee has been declared by the National Club Golfer as having one of the finest views in British golf.

The Dorst Golf Resort

The Dorset Golf Resort can be found in Bere Regis, which is on the outskirts of Poole. This fantastic award-winning golf and resort is perfect to visit all year round as guests have described that the courses play very differently in summer and winter months. That being said, we believe that The Dorset Golf Resort is best visited within the months of May and June – as a beautiful floral display begins to bloom throughout the course for golfers to enjoy.

Came Down Golf Club

Came Down Golf Club is located near the quiet country village of Broadmayne, which is halfway between Dorchester and Weymouth. This fantastic golf club has been one of the most popular golf courses in West Dorset since the 19th century.  Famously Came Down Golf Club has been known for the wild deer that occasionally appear nearby as the course itself is surrounded by the rolling hills of Dorset countryside and forestland.

Wareham Golf Club

Wareham Golf Club is a fantastic local golf club with over 18-holes on its course. The grounds are surrounded by well-kept woodlands, which are particularly beautiful in the autumn months when the leaves start to turn brown. This club has an excellent restaurant and bar for members to enjoy on behalf of the Allstar Bar & Kitchen – which has been awarded the title of the best golf-course catering team in Dorset.

Bulbury Woods Holburne Golf

The Bulbury Woods Holfburne Golf club is an impressive tree-lined golf course on the outskirts of Poole. This larger golf course is fantastic for groups, families, and friends to play in their own time. This site also has a fantastic bar and restaurant which is open daily for both club members and guests. The restaurant serves an excellent Sunday lunch for golfers looking to enjoy a meal either before or after their game.

What our guests say

  • A lovely quiet site

    Andy Blackwell

    A lovely quiet site, nice warm amenities with good sized shower cubicles, shop not open yet as it’s too early but the local pub is ideal. Staff were very friendly and helpful. If you’re reasonably fit you can walk into Swanage but the bus service is great so why would you want to. Overall a very nice break, we will be back.
