Isle of Purbeck Golf Club

Dorset, England

Overview

The Isle of Purbeck Golf Club is an 18 hole heathland golf course with a links feel. The course offers spectacular views of Poole Harbour, Brownsea Island, Bournemouth and The Solent. The highlight is the view afforded golfers on the 5th tee.

Established in August 1892, Arthur Jackson laid out the original design. It was reported in 1904 that the 9 hole course was 'recently greatly improved.' 9 holes were added in the 1960s, bringing the total to 18. The 5th, 6th and the stretch of holes from the 10th to 16th were developed by J Stutt in 1966.

The course as a whole is located within a Nature Reserve and is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).

Enid Blyton's husband bought the course for her in the 1950s. It was later bought by Wilkinson Sword MD, Harry Randolph. The club still plays annual events for his swords as the trophies!

The club's name was changed to the Studland Bay Golf Club before being changed back to the Isle of Purbeck GC in 1966.
