Where2Golf says: 

Isle of Purbeck Golf Club: Occupying its lofty perch and wonderfully natural setting on the Isle of Purbeck hills, the views from just about every hole on this heathland golf course are simply stunning. Whether you are looking across Poole Harbour to the Dorset countryside beyond, along the Studland Bay coast to Bournemouth, or across to the Solent and the Isle of Wight, panoramic vistas are all around. If your objectives include more than just sight-seeing, then you'll need to pay some attention to the golf course as well. This is a constantly challenging layout, especially if the wind is getting in on the act, as it often does. The good-width and often undulating fairways are frequently bordered by deep-ish rough, which might be either grass or heather, or a combination of both. Gorse bushes are also much in evidence, and like the rest of the rough, well worth staying out of - if you can. The state of the fairways can sometimes leave a bit to be desired, but a highly manicured parkland course it not really what you would expect to find in such an open and exposed location.

Did you know?

Perhaps the most famous of the previous owners of Isle of Purbeck Golf Club, was the famous children's story book writer, Enid Blyton. During the period she and her husband Dr Darrell-Waters owned the club, the 9-hole course was added. The modern clubhouse not only provides a terrific vantage point to take in the panoramic views, it is also a place where excellent food can be enjoyed before and after your round.
