“Better when 18 holes available”

Swanage Pitch and Putt
Reviewed 3 August 2013

A very nice pitch & put course, suitable for most abilities. The only downside at the moment is that half the course has been given over to campers. Still good fun.

As a dreadful golfer, I've always enjoyed this non pretentious pitch and putt. Unfortunately to make ends meet, half the holes are now turned over to camping. You can go round the course twice to make a full round but it's not as much fun as it was few years ago. Maybe it's the recession but I can't help thinking that more pitching balls is required than pitching tents!

This place might be good for pitch and putt but it should stick to that! During the summer part of it is turned into a campsite. On the plus side it is level and smooth which is good for pitching tents, and small open fires are tolerated. There is also a kiosk open for breakfast rolls which were good. However when we were there it was jam packed with tents which would have been ok if there had been more than 4 toilets. These were portaloos and there were frequent long queues to use them. Although the toilets were plumbed in the sinks in them were not so hand gel was provided to wash your hands. Both hand gel and loo roll ran out on the 3rd evening of our stay and were not replaced until after 8am the following morning. There were sinks outside for tooth brushing and hand washing (no soap provided) but there were at the far side of a counter and were hard to reach for an adult - impossible for children. There were only 2 washing up sinks and 1 drinking water tap. These are also outside - fine if it's not raining! We had an ok time but the facilities could have been much better.

This course is advertised as 18 holes around Swanage. We have played before and it is a good mix of holes suitable for all abilities. Unfortunately half the holes were not available due to campers. The price however was not half the full price. £7.50 was 18 hole price and we were charged £5 for 9 holes with option to pay another £2.50 to re-play the 9 holes. It would have been more reasonable to charge £4 for 9 holes.

However clubs and balls are included so perhaps £5 is still reasonable value. Overall a fun time, just a shame advertising is mis-leading around the town.

Great for non golfers to be able to play 18 holes in a couple of hours. Cost is 7.50 per adult for 18 holes with the clubs and 2 balls provided. Would have liked more balls as we weren't that good at golf, and lost one by the third hole. It did make us more cautious though about our play. Was a great way to spend the afternoon, the course is extremely pleasant and with the railway running alongside the course, there are the trains to add to the atmosphere. Suitable for all abilities of golf.
