Ferndown Golf Club


'There's no doubt that Ferndown Golf Club is one of the prettiest and best-conditioned courses in the South...'

The Old Course

Our renowned 18-hole ‘Old Course' was designed by Harold Hilton, the Open Champion in 1892 and 1897. In fact, Harold was the only British amateur golfer to win the British and US Amateur titles in the same year (1911). What was to become one of the top golf Clubs in Dorset and the UK opened for play in 1913.

The Alliss Course

In 1969 the ‘Presidents Course’ was constructed and launched to enhance the availability of first class golf in Dorset. Consisting of 9 holes (though it can be played as 18-holes), this superb addition to the Club was designed by Mr J Hamilton Stutt, a founder member and past Chairman of the British Association of Golf Course Architects. He had previously worked alongside Mackenzie Ross on such well-known courses as Turnberry – Ailsa Course, and St Mellion. The Course was renamed the Alliss Course in September 2015 in recognition of the clubs long assocation with the Alliss Family.                                                      

27 Holes of Challenge and Enjoyment

Today, you'll see Harold's vision for Ferndown Golf Club remains intact, with its attractive outlook and pristine Tee to Green grooming often leading to the course being favourably compared to the world-famous Augusta.

These are easily walked, level courses with delightful greens and a peaceful location. The Old Course, in particular, really hits the sweet spot. However, both courses will challenge and delight players of every level, thanks to the subtle hazards, well designed and positioned bunkers and the gorgeous heathland setting.

To further enhance our standing as one of the top golf Clubs in the UK, we can also offer you a full range of practice facilities to enjoy. These include an open air and covered driving range, pitching area, practice nets and practice putting green with bunkers.

Handicap Requirements

Please note that our handicap requirements are a maximum of 28 for men and 36 for women. A Handicap Certificate should be presented at the professional's shop on the day you play.
