Meyrick Park Golf Club
Meyrick Park, Bournemouth, Dorset, BH26LH
Tel: 01202 290307

One of the most beautiful municipal golf courses in the country. As well as being beautiful, the course can also prove to be incredibly challenging.

Imagine standing on the first tee with trees either side of the fairway and looking onward to the green which is cut into a hillside 240 yards away. You will require your best shot that you´ll hit all day to carry the ball onto the putting surface.
As par 3´s go, this one is a true test of golf!
