Golf and Functions at Bridport

Golf on the 6th green viewed from 14th Tee

Whilst the Club is the oldest golf club in Dorset being founded in 1891, its modern facilities and contemporary attitude make it very much part of the 21st Century.  Located on the stunning Jurassic coastline, the views stretch across Lyme Bay and along the Chesil Beach to Portland. Our 6213 yard, cliff top links style golf course, is a challenging but fair test for all levels of golfer.  Renowned for its friendliness, the Club offers an excellent restaurant, lounge and spikes bar, as well as a Driving Range and Putting Green.

A big advantage of being located where we are is that we have exceptional natural drainage which means we can stay open when other golf courses cannot. We normally play 18 full holes on proper greens all year (with the odd exception when it is really frosty or very wet). so if you want a true links feel, stunning views and an experience you will remember, visit us soon.

Societies and visiting golfers are very welcome and we have a range of green fees and packages on offer. Whether it is coffee bacon roll and golf only or a package that includes a meal afterwards we have something to suit everyone. Our standard green fee rates are very competitive and we also offer twilight packages and winter warmer golf when the weather is a little less pleasant. Visitors and Societies please check out your pages for more information using the menus above .

Our history has also brought experience in quality, service and hospitality. We are confident that our clubhouse will provide a superb wedding reception venue, our testimonials are evidence of that. So if you are getting married in West Dorset and want “your day” to be the best it can be, Roy or Andrew will be only too happy to arrange a meeting to discuss your exact requirements. We would also love to hear from you if you are looking for a venue for that milestone function or thinking of having a corporate event. For more information click here   or on the function tab above  or contact us to discuss it.

Nice Things People Have Said About Us


Our society played your delightful course last Friday. We were made to feel most welcome and thoroughly enjoyed our day, I am quite sure that if any of our party are visiting Dorset, Bridport & West Dorset Golf Club will be on their “must visit” list.

The Naseby Golf Society

Firstly may I thank you and all the other staff for making our day a very successful one at Bridport. The day started off with what I would describe as one of the very best cooked breakfasts we had been provided on a society day

The nice touch of having the course ambassador come into the lounge and inform us of your local rules and hints and tips for the day was welcoming.

Once again many thanks for a great day, the staff do your club very proud.


Thank you all so much for all your hard work in “making our special day, one to remember”. The number of guests that commented on the “wonderful setting and the fabulous food”, really is a credit to you all.

We will certainly recommend you to anybody looking to host an event in a brilliant setting, with “first class service”
