Remedy Oak Golf Club

A rather modern parkland course by English golfer John Jacobs.

Remedy Oak Golf Club

Dorset, England

Overview

A John Jacobs design routed through acres of ancient woodland in Southern England, Remedy Oak Golf Club is the epitome of a hidden gem.


Golf Course Review

Remedy Oak Golf Club is a forest golf course built on 256 acres of ancient woodland in Horton, near Wimborne, Dorset. John Jacobs, assisted greatly by Jonathan Gaunt, built the 18-hole, par 72, 7010-yard golf course in 2006. As expected, water comes into play on 8 of 18 holes.

Remedy Oak

The name is derived from a massive Oak tree nearby the course. Purported to bestow healing especially against scurvy, it was here that King Edward VI would cure afflicted commoners with his divine touch.

Private Members Golf Club

With membership limited to just 400 and their invited guests, the course is proud to declare itself a 5-star venue that is prestigious, unique and exclusive. Both the R&A and the ranks are in agreement, using it for Regional Open Qualifying and awarding it a place in a few Top 100 Lists.

Visitors Welcome

There are a few tee times reserved for those who avail themselves of the Remedy Oak Experience, which includes a round of golf, range balls and some sustenance. The course is never overrun, making it a 'tranquil, secluded and personal golf experience.'
