    IntroductionOn 1st February 1932 a company was formed by Messrs Douglas Maxwell and Eric Waller following the sale of some of their grocery and fruiterer business premises.

    The aim was to found a golf club under their new company name of Wallisdown (Bournemouth) Golf Club. Shares in the company were created contributing to the capital of 8,000 which the company had

    amassed. In December 1932 negotiations were initiated with Lord Wimborne for the purchase of land on Canford Heath. By the end of March 1933 the deal was sealed. The then Board of Trade refused to sanction the chosen name for the company, which then remained as B & EP (Direct Supplies) Limited. The golf club was registered as Northbourne Golf Club.In 1959 it was renamed New Northbourne Golf Club by the new owner, Mr Billy

    Knott. He sold it on in 1972 but the new owner went bankrupt in 1976. The club members were offered the opportunity to raise capital for the purchase of the course. This was successfully achieved and the club was renamed KnightonHeath Golf Club.

    Knighton Heath Golf Club is situated just north of the Bournemouth and Poole conurbation but whilst playing the course you will often feel as if you are in the heart of the countryside. It is a genuine heathland course, set in 90 acres of high ground beside Canford Heath and offers a great place to play golf in Dorset. Its proximity to the heath and the wildlife which live there means you are oftenable to catch sight of grazing deer, birds of

    prey and other wildlife all whilst enjoying your round of golf. The course is made all the more interesting by a varied change of elevation and at key points offers good views across the Stour valley and beyond.

    A fair but testing course, it offers a great challenge to all golfers no matter what their ability and the club prides itself in being well known for its warm, friendly welcome.

    As testament to the overall package on offer to you is that Knighton Heath is continually being asked to host Dorset county events.

    Please carry on reading if you want any more reasons to give us a try!

    About the CourseThe course is expertly maintained by our course manager and his highly motivated and enthusiastic team. As such the course is always in superb condition, and boasts arguably some of the best greens in Dorset.

    You will need to plot your way around the course which is heavily tree-lined with some narrow fairways. The greens are in superb condition and the course presents an excellent test of golf for players of all standards.

    Our course manager and his team continually strive to improve the course, and recent changes have certainly enhanced the overall presentation.For men playing off the competition tees (Blue) the course measures 6,065 yards.

    However despite its modest length bymodern standards do not let this fool you into thinking it will be easy! With the Standard Scratch Score of 70 matching the par, you will understand that Knighton Heath is no pushover.

    The course for ladies (Red tees) measures 5,474 yards. Although the ladies get an extra shot, with the 17th being played as a par 5, the par of 71 is actually two strokes fewer than the Standard Scratch Score.From the White tees the course measures

    5,838 yards. These tees are allocated to members general play and are also thoseused by any visiting societies.

    Practice FacilitiesKnighton Heath Golf Club is committed to offering its members all the facilities possible to enable members the chance to become as proficient at this great game of golf as their talent and application allows.

    A large practice area adjacent to the course provides the opportunity to practise your full swing.

    The short game is not overlooked, either, with a chipping practice area enabling the dedicated player the chance to work on those round-saving shots around the green. The words sand save could quickly be added to your golfing vocabulary once you become proficient from our practice bunker.

    Additionally, a very nice putting green mirrors the fine surfaces to be found out on the course.

    For those where time is at a premium, there are driving nets not far from the first tee, affording
