Remedy Oak Golf Course

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 2005

Remedy Oak Golf Course: this wonderfully natural course is set amongst 256 acres of ancient woodland in Horton, Dorset. Meandering through a backdrop of hardwood trees, mature pines, rhododendrons, heather and wild grasses, the course abounds with the natural beauty and tranquility of its surroundings.

Crafted by the renowned John Jacobs, this excellent tree-lined heathland course measures over 7,000 yards from the back tees. Water comes into play on eight holes, as the flowing layout weaves its way through majestic conifer-lined avenues.

There's plenty of golfing challenge in this well-crafted modern design, with usually excellent upkeep also contributing to the appeal of the course. An absence of roads and housing further enhances your quiet enjoyment of this Jacob's designed gem.

Did you know?

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.
