Players generally walk this course.
The ancient woodland on which Remedy Oak is laid out has a rich history dating back many centuries. The club's crest contains four elements: a crown, a deer, an oak tree and crossed golf clubs. The Crown – refers to Edward VI (1537-53), the Boy King, who used to visit this location, to stay with Henry Hastings, the squire of the manor. The Deer – the King and the squire would hunt deer over neighbouring Cranborne Chase.
The Oak Tree – at Woodlands, on the corner of the road leading to the golf club, stands the Remedy Oak tree. Here, Edward VI healed people of “King's Evil” or scurvy; the King was believed to have a divine touch in those days. The Crossed Golf Clubs – representing the Club itself, home to a course crafted by renowned golfer, golf instructor, writer and course designer John Jacobs in 2006.
