The staff at the hotel very over officious. I found them to be at times rude, but this was only the staff in the clubhouse, the guys in the pro shop and the starter extremely helpful. The room was extremely hot and stuffy although they did provide a fan it was insufficient. The hotel is in the middle of nowhere so venturing out for evening drinks or entertainment was off the cards due to the cost and duration of travel.

Golf Courses at The Dorset Golf & Country Club Resort
The different combinations offer welcome variety, while the undeniable quality of the golf course has resulted in the Dorset being selected to host countless professional tournaments including the South-West PGA Championship and a MasterCard Tour event. The toughest combination measures over 7,000 yards from the tips and ranks in the top 150 courses in the UK, but there are tees to suit golfers of all standards.
The Lakeland and Parkland
These loops are considered to be the Dorset's championship layout, and are characterised by beautifully shaped greens that will demand maximum attention. The fairways and putting surfaces are protected by strategically positioned bunkers, while golfers must negotiate the network of lakes and streams that traverse the landscape.
loop may be slightly shorter than Dorset's two premier courses, but the tight, tree-lined fairways are carved from a dramatic forest of stunning rhododendrons, and demand accuracy above all else.
With 27 excellent holes, a 22-bay driving range and a short game area, the Dorset Golf & Country Club is undoubtedly one of the most comprehensive golfing destinations in the region.

Warm welcome, clean, tidy, efficient.
The self catering wood lodges were ideal for a large group as they had plenty of communal space for everyone to get together after the days golf. They were well equipped, in really good condition and the beds were comfortable. The meals served in the restaurant were excellent, not fine dining but good quality and substantial, just what's needed after a day out on the course, we certainly didn't go hungry!
The lodges are great, they cater for all, very roomy, great value, if i was being honest, there looking a bit dated furniture wise
8 ladies stayed in 2 lodges.Fabulous ,clean and roomy. Slight issue with pathway going out of bungalow lodge.Due to slabs being the same colour 1 lady didn`t see the step and fell down injuring shoulder and missing out on 2nd days golf.Incident reported.
The accommodation was very good although, we both thought the mattresses were far too soft(worn). The shower was good but very noisy.(water pump).

The course on the hallway is in pretty good condition, greens were pretty good. The difference between the rough and the fairways was sometimes not obvious. The putting green was perfectly adequate didn’t use the driving range but looked pretty basic. One area of the course that needs further development would be the bunkers, a number of occasion there was hardly any sand and unfortunately potentially damaged one of my clubs by hitting a stone. On our second round my group unfortunately was stuck behind some very slow golfers so 18 holes for eight of us took us nearly 5 hours which I thought was unacceptable. Satisfied I went, however, I don’t think I need to return.
Disciplined from the tee then good scoring was insured, fantastic respective greens, large & undulating but most important than ran really well and true.
The fact that the course was made up of 3 separate 9 hole courses was ideal for a 2 night 3 round stay as it gave plenty of variation. Our group was made up of mid to high handicaps and all agreed it provided enough of a challenge for the lower handicaps but not too much for the high handicaps to cope with. Lots of bunkers though, which we all found our way into at some point and some were hard to get out of, but then I guess that's the point! The only reason for 4 starts on the overall condition is that the condition of some of the greens and fairways on the Woodland course were not quite as good as the other 2 courses. some of the fairways were a bit bare and the outer area on some of the greens was a bit patchy. In general though it didn't affect the run of the ball so definitely not a round spoiler. The Lakeland and Parkland courses however, were in excellent condition and really played well, quite surprising considering the amount of rain there was in the couple of weeks before we played, we were expecting a waterlogged course but it just wasn't. Overall the whole group very much enjoyed the golf.
I would say , the green this year were great, they have been slower in past years, a massive pat on the back to the green keepers this year, there were true with a nice members slope rating
Loved the challenge.Even par 3`s weren`t easy.If the oaks didn`t get you then the bunkers were the greens back up. Will be back.
We both enjoyed our golf,but we were behind a lot of 4 balls which slowed the pace of our rounds considerably. This is not a complaint just an observation. The courses were in very good condition.
Excellent facilities and fairways/greens in very good condition. Very nice clubhouse with reasonably priced drinks
