About Us

6th Hole Play Video

Whilst the Club is the oldest golf club in Dorset celebrating our 125th anniversary this year, 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. We will be only too happy to arrange a meeting to discuss your exact requirements and 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.

Things People Have Said About Us

On behalf of the DCGU I would like to congratulate Bridport & West Dorset Golf Club on hosting the 2016 County Championship. I have been to many of these events over the years and I can honestly say that we have never been made more welcome. The amount of effort put in to ensure the success of the Championship was obvious to all and those efforts were rewarded with a memorable three days of splendid golf culminating in the evening sunshine on Sunday and crowning a worthy champion.

I would be most grateful if you would pass on to all those concerned my sincere thanks. Please also extend my thanks to your Captain Ian Kearly for putting up with me on Sunday afternoon. I enjoyed it immensely.

Not least also pass on our gratitude to your members for giving up their course for three days.

This Championship will be long remembered as a great success and given the opportunity it would be an absolute pleasure to return at some time in the future.

My Very Best Wishes

Ian Clark

Chairman, Dorset County Golf Union

The course was a pleasure to play as always with those stunning views and backdrops, the members and clubhouse staff were very friendly and helpful and the food and service were excellent too.
Look forward to a future visit.
