About Us

Kirkwood Park is set in 16 glorious acres in the heart of Swanage, just 500 meters back from the middle of the seafront. The varied 1000+ meter 18 hole course is laid out for pitch and putt, football and frisbee golf.

We welcome all ages and ability levels and provide and include everything you need for your games in the green fee price (except the skill of course!) There are no fussy rules or dress codes and unless you are a very large group there is no need to book your tee time in advance.

We cater for families, groups, stag and hen do’s, inter pub and club competitions and we are a great place to have a couple of hours friendly competitive fun with your friends doing either a 9 hole taster or the full 18.

The site is a wildlife haven of mature trees and hedgerows, meadowland with the Swan Brook running through and rough grassland areas teeming with a variety of birds and butterflies. Superb views of Ballard Down and the Swanage Steam Railway running alongside go to make Kirkwood Park a complete Purbeck holiday experience.

Simple refreshments are provided from the reception but you are welcome to bring your own picnic and utilise our benches and grassy areas which are free to all course users. Free onsite customer parking and toilet facilities are provided.

We promise you a warm and friendly welcome, so come and visit us and test your skills on our beautiful and cunningly designed course. You’ll be glad you did!

Remember – you are welcome to play a ‘nine and nine combo’ of any of our games for the same price as the full eighteen of any one! Just come to the clubhouse after nine holes and we’ll fix you up with the other kit for no extra cost to you!

FAQs

Here are some questions our customers often ask.

Can we bring our dogs?

Yes! We are a dog friendly course.  We ask for dogs to be on leads please as there are deer, foxes and badgers on our site and some dogs get pretty excited by the smells! Oh, and don’t forget to carry bags for cleaning up in emergencies!

Can we eat and drink at the Kirkwood Park?

Yes. We have tables and chairs set up near the pavilion for customers to utilise and there are nice grassy picnic areas around the site too. We sell cold drinks and snacks but you are welcome to bring your own picnics if you prefer.

Can extra people hang out at Kirkwood Park who aren't playing?
