Following the government's announcement, both courses will re-open on Wednesday 2nd December. We will endeavour to provide you with up to date information with regards to the clubhouse facilities as the annoucement with regards to tiers is made on Thursday. 
Our best wishes to you and your families. Please stay safe and well, and we look forward to seeing you again very soon.  


In Tier 2 the rules on gatherings are tighter, banning us from socialising indoors with anyone we do not live with.  Those who live together or are in a support bubble can be seated together inside.  You are also able to sit inside if you are by yourself.  But, if you want to have a meal with friends you will have to wrap up warm and brave the cold as you'll have to stay outside (Rule of Six still applies).   Our tables outside only sit 4, socially distanced.  Table service only still applies both inside and out.  Under Tier 2 they are only allowing people to drink alcohol if they have a substantial meal.​

We will be offering Christmas Lunch (seatings from 12-2pm) in the dining room(inside) starting Thursday 3rd December.  You can only eat with your household or support bubble.  If there are people you wish to dine with that are not part of your household or support bubble, we can seat you at separate tables that are near each other.

We will be offering a Bar Menu everyday, starting on 3rd of December.  Breakfast will be from 9:30 – 12, Lunch from 12-2, and possibly dinners Friday and Saturday nights (still yet to be determined).

For those wanting an alcoholic drink in the Bar or Outside(such as a pint after your round of golf), we will be offering two specially priced meals that qualify as a substantial meals.  These are: Sausage Roll and Chips or Salad for £3 (must be ordered with an alcoholic beverage) and a Pasty and Chips or Salad for £4.50 (must be ordered with an alcoholic beverage).  Any other sandwiches or meals on our Bar Menu will also qualify.  

Swipe card discounts for members will apply to all of the above.  You can have as many drinks with your meal as you wish, but once your meal is done, you are not allowed to order more drinks.  We will be placing many single tables in the bar.  So, even though you can’t sit at the same table, you can still sit close to each other(with at least a metre distance in between.

The same Covid rules apply as before: masks must be worn indoors until you are seated at your table.  Table service only.  Social distancing.

As always, the welfare of our guests and staff is our first priority.  

During these very challenging times, if you are able, we hope that you will support the club and come for a meal or a drink with your household or support bubble. Due to the government requirements, seating is limited and it is now essential to book in advance. You can book a table by calling 01929 450361 or e-mailing 

We will be taking names and phone numbers for Track and Trace.  We know this all sounds like a lot of work but we are so excited to have everyone back at the club and aim to create the same fun atmosphere and warm welcome with which you are accustomed.  Check our website for more details at

Play Safe - Stay Safe Guidelines


The Isle of Purbeck GC was founded in 1892, the coming of the railway meant hotels were being built and Summer visitors were increasing rapidly. Among its past owners were Dr Darrell-Waters, a consultant of distinction and his wife Enid Blyton, the legendary writer of children's books. At the time the club was called the Studland Bay Golf Club and the clubhouse was located on the left hand of the Swanage to Studland road. In 1965, after 14 years in charge, Darrell-Waters sold the club to Mr Randolph, who was about to retire from his positions as Chairman and Managing Director of the family firm, The Wilkinson Sword Company. It was Randolph who in 1966 restored the club to its original name "The Isle of Purbeck GC". This was also the year the new clubhouse, still in use today, was built. It features giant fossils in the walls and the connection with the Wilkinson Sword Company , is present throughout. Swords are played for annually by the members in the Randolph Trophy. 

When you play at the Isle of Purbeck, you'll enjoy a wonderfully traditional course set in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The first thing that strikes visitors is the spectacular views, looking out over Brownsea Island, Bournemouth and the Solent. Indeed, the fifth tee possesses one of the finest views in British golf. The late King Edward declared the view from this point as one of the finest in his kingdom and that opinion is not likely to be disputed by anyone who has had the chance to stand there. Each hole is located in its own unique setting, providing magnificent views and challenges. The 4 par 3's are unique in that they each face a different compass point. Consequently, each poses a different challenge based on wind direction. If you want to post a good score, be prepared for a game of strategy, brains over brawn!
