Thanks to yourgolftravel for your first class organisation of our recent golf trip to Bournemouth. We were well advised to play at The Isle of Purbeck and Broadstone GC; both excellent golf courses.
At the Isle of Purbeck we experienced some dreadful weather, the course and the wonderful views couldn't be blamed for that. Despite the weather, the course was really interesting and in excellent condition.
The bar staff welcomed us back in from the course and warmed us up with homemade soup and whiskey macs!
I would recommend you take an electric trolley with you as the only had pull trollies and buggies for hire.
Broadstone was a mature, tough course and also in first class condition in spite of the previous days heavy rain. We would all like to return to play both of these courses again now that we have discovered them.
In terms of accommodation, the Menzies Carlton Hotel was excellent. The reception staff were very welcoming, the sea view rooms very comfortable and clean as well. The bathrooms had huge radiators which were perfect for drying our wet golf things!
The hotel is a short walk from Harry Ramsden’s Restaurant which was very good and thoroughly recommended. The evening meal in the hotel was also excellent and beautifully presented and the staff friendly and helpful too.
Bournemouth itself has a complicated road system so we’d recommend first timers take a sat-nav.
All in all a great holiday.
