- Parley Green Lane, Bournemouth, BH23 6BB
The course itself is an easy walking nine hole layout with 18 tee positions adding a varied dimension to your game on each nine holes, and requires more course management than is at first apparent. Not unduly long, but to score you had better find the fairways. After a comfortable start over the first three holes, you cross the road to a tricky short par 3, bunkered and with a water hazard. Then the signature hole the 5th, double dogleg par 5 with the river right and ditches near the green. A good drive is a must and a five is something to celebrate. Back to the older holes, par 4s that need accuracy rather than length, all in all an enjoyable test. Great for the short game.
