What we say
Good example of a heather and pine course, whose best hole is the cracking 6th. A course that takes you on a lovely journey. Some really good holes in a dreamy setting. A mini Augusta...on the edge of, um, Bournemouth. This classic heathland keeps impressing. 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.
Ferndown is not just about the Old Course and in fact is the home of has two excellent golf courses - the Old Course and The Presidents Course. The Old Course has hosted a number of professional tournaments over the years and provides a challenging test to golfers of all abilities while the nine hole Presidents layout demands accuracy and concentration to negotiate the natural hazards. The golf club is synonymous with Harold Hilton, the double amateur chamption who designed the golf course and the Alliss family - Percy was the professional while son Peter learned the game here.
Stay & Play: The Smugglers Cottage B&B is close by.
