We are thrilled to announce that our Bar/Restaurant will be opening on the 4th of July.  We have spaced the tables to allow for the 1+ meter rule and have extensive cleaning procedures in place.  As always, the welfare of our guests and staff is our first priority.  

We are changing our dining room to a more casual style and will be serving a New Bar Menu daily which will include burgers, steaks, scampi, and sandwiches.  We will be serving drinks throughout the day and will, of course, be offering our barista coffees.  Our typical 2 and 3 course dining room menu won’t be available and we are suspending our Sunday lunch until we feel comfortable providing that service. 

Filter coffee and bacon baps will be served in the pro shop every day from 8:15am-10:30am.  We have outdoor seating available on a first come, first served basis.  No reservations for outdoor seating will be taken.  

Due to the government requirements, seating will be limited and it is now essential to book in advance.  You can do this by calling our BAR at 01929 450361. 

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 exited to have everyone back at the club and aim to create the same fun atmosphere and warm welcome with which you are accustomed. 

 8:15am - 10:30am Daily - Pro Shop open for filter coffee and bacon baps
11:00am -  6:00pm Daily - Bar/Restaurant open for drinks
11:00am -  3:00am Daily - Food service in Bar/Restaurant Menu, Barista Coffees & Drinks

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!
