Bournemouth is the largest resort in Dorset and along with seven miles of sandy beaches, it also offers a buzzing coastal city with access to a fine array of golf courses within a small radius.
The most famous course in the region is Broadstone Golf Club which situated on some rolling hillside is, without doubt, the best golf course in the region.
But any trip to this area should take into account Parkstone Golf Club, Ferndown Golf Club, Remedy Oak and Stoneham Golf Club as well.
The Isle of Purbeck is also another fantastic course worth visiting in the region.

Originally the Dorset Golf Club, Broadstone Golf Club was founded in 1898 and its good. With a back 9 overlooking the Purbeck Hills and Poole Harbour, it’s one to not miss. It might not be long and it might not be a championship course, but it’s a great test.
