The South West's Premier 27-hole Heathland Golf Course

Come play golf in the footsteps of giants

Faldo, Langer, Norman, Lyle, Jacklin and a host of other legendary names from the world of golf have all graced the fairways and greens here at Ferndown Golf Club since it was established in 1913.

Experience this wonderful course for yourself and you'll soon understand why Rolex rates Ferndown Golf Club as in the world's top 3% of courses, while Golf World ranked us at number 61 in the 'Top 100 Golf Clubs in Britain & Ireland, 2012-2013'.

You'll also appreciate why we've been chosen to host many prestigious tournaments over the years, from The Hennessy Cognac Cup, featuring leading players from the European Tour, the European Ladies Championship and the British Ladies Open, to the R&A Regional ‘Open’ Qualifier 2008 – 2012.

Your perfect course, your ideal location

Come and play greens that are nurtured, maintained and presented without compromise and set in a pristine environment. You'll find our 18-hole ‘Old Course’ and 9-hole ‘President's Course’ are both a joy and a challenge to play for golfers of every standard.

Nestling in stunning heathland, the Club is based close to Bournemouth and Poole, between England's sunny south coast and Dorset's beautiful countryside. We're convenient for major road links such as the M3, M27 and A31.

You to a tee

We're proud of our heritage and traditions but we're equally proud of our fresh, modern outlook. So when you're seeking the very best in men's, ladies or family golf in Dorset, you'll find a warm, friendly welcome here at Ferndown Golf Club.
