Course Information

Welcome to the Moors Valley Golf Course.

Owned and managed by Dorset Council, the Moors Valley Golf Course is an 18-hole course extending along the valley of the Moors River and covers a total of 6337 yards, and includes four par 5s, ten par 4s and four par 3s. An 11-hole option is also available, as well as practice nets and a putting green.

Designed by Hawtree over 30 years ago, the mature course is both challenging and enjoyable for golfers of all abilities. Each hole has its own character, adding variety and interest within an attractive countryside setting.

Everyone is welcome to play on the Moors Valley Golf Course, with both pay and play and season ticket options available. Regular players may also consider joining the Moors Valley Golf Club who are based at the course and hold competitions for all standards of play.

The course is situated within the beautiful Moors Valley Country Park and Forest, an attraction for families with over 1000 acres of park and forest to explore, which includes the Moors Valley Railway, a Play Trail, Go Ape and two Adventure Play Areas.
