Where2Golf says: 

The Dorset Golf, Country Club & Resort (Lakeland/Parkland course): Between Wareham and Bere Regis is a spectacular piece of heathland, best known as the location of the Bovington tank training ground. More recently the heathland has also become home to the Dorset Golf & Country Club, comprising the Lakeland/Parkland championship course, and the additional Woodland-nine. Water is an ever-present danger on this very interesting Hawtree layout, as are clusters of gorse bushes that also line the generous width fairways. The general condition of the course can sometimes show signs of heavy usage, although not to detract from the layout's undoubted quality and interest.
