What Golf World says...
Ferndown's Old Course was rated no. 76 in Golf World's latest Top 100 UK Courses poll, making it the highest rankled of Dorset's heathland lovelies. Ferndown's immaculate mixture of heather and pine is a winning combination: it's also a course of tight fairways, subtle greens and plentiful bunkers requiring careful strategy as opposed to brute force.
