A mature golf course set in acres of vibrant heathers & colourful gorse. All in scenic pine woodland surroundings.

A brief history

The Mayor of Bournemouth officially opened the course on 25th October 1905. An exhibition match followed, played by professionals J H Taylor, Harry Vardon, James Braid and Alex Herd.

Queen's Park was the second golf course in Bournemouth, but it was quickly known to be a more severe test of golf and established itself as one of the very first and the finest municipal golf courses in the country.

Host to several European Tour events over the years, the course has challenged renowned golfers such as Bobby Locke, Henry Cotton and Seve Ballesteros.

The course has undergone major alterations over the years and remains a good golfing challenge.  A round played to handicap would be considered a satisfying achievement.
