Challenge your friends and family to a round of pitch and putt at Swanage Golf Games.

Located close to the centre of Swanage at Kirkwood Park, and right by King George’s playground and skate park, Swanage Golf Games is a handy and fun way to spend an hour or two.

Set across a 1,000+ metre plot, Swanage Golf Games offers traditional pitch and putt as well as more unusual ways to play.

Golf games:

  • Pitch & putt – Choose from either a nine or 18-hole game for a fun yet challenging round of golf for both children and adults
  • Footgolf – For something a bit different, take up to six friends around the course with a football each and try to get them in the oversized holes
  • Frisbee Golf – See if you can reach the target in the lowest number of throws

There is also the option to play a ‘nine and nine combo’ of two different types of golf games.
