The Dorset Bowls Resort in Bere Regis is all inclusive with indoor bowling and golf. It is set in the beautiful Dorset countryside a few miles from the iconic Jurassic Coast.

12 of our members joined Castle Green, Merrow and Clacton on Sea bowling

club members for 4 days of bowling and much more! The facilities offer high class

dining (4 choices per course) and bed and breakfast. The accommodation is

either en suite room in the hotel or stunning log cabins with en suite rooms.


The one million pound championship standard three rink bowling arena was opened in 2009 by David Bryant CBE and Tony Allcock MBE. It is ideal for full length or short mat bowling. The arena includes a large viewing gallery for spectators, changing rooms, showers, a gymnasium, sauna and massage shower.


There is a large menu of bar food at reasonable prices for lunch and a fully

equipped bar, with sensible pricing.

The entertainment includes a quiz, live singers, dancing and a presentation

evening. All are great fun and ensure each day ends on a high. The staff are

friendly and attentive, nothing is too much trouble, they really do want their

guests to have a good time.

Activities during the day include some initial fun bowling (men v women)

followed by a 2-day team competition. The schedule of the bowling allows

plenty of time to enjoy the other attractions both on and off site. There’s golf

(included), a gym, pool table or country walks in the beautiful local

countryside. If you want to go further afield there’s The Tank Museum at Bovington or

Monkey World nearby.

The cost for 5 days 4 nights is surprisingly low. The dates for next year are

13th to 17th January, places are limited so if you are interested let Colin

Colbrook, Alan Mogg or John Kershaw know as soon as possible.

Not sure? Have a chat with any of the 12 who went (pictures and names

above). There will be a display in the clubhouse in the next 2 weeks sharing photos, stories and other information to help you to decide. Click here for more information about the Dorset Resort


Burpham v Merrow indoor match 18 Feb 2024

This annual event was a very enjoyable affair. A game of bowls and a roast dinner for just £13!! It could have been more enjoyable, but lets not dwell on the result! So what is so remarkable about this game that makes it worthy of a mention here.



Well, notwithstanding the above item this was the first club outing showing off our new livery.
