27 Holes of Championship Golf

The Lakeland, Parkland and Woodland Courses we’re designed by the prolific course designer Martin Hawtree who recently received international acclaim for his excellent work re-designing Royal Birkdale for the British Open.  His more recent design of Trump Golf Links (A luxury 5 Star Resort) in Scotland for Donald Trump has received more great press, rating Martin Hawtree as the best course designer in the world today. Martin Hawtree has also redesigned St Andrews on behalf of the Royal and Ancient, so in design terms the courses here at The Dorset have a pedigree that is undeniable.
