Only 12 holes which makes it a little cheaper than the 18 hole sister golf in Sandbanks ( £13 for 2 adults and 3 children). Good fun! Would recommend. Free parking is always a bonus too!

A pleasant little park in town and close to the town centre. It is well maintained and has things to do and well as places to eat and drink that are all close by. A very nice park and very popular with visitors.
