    Visiting relatives in Devon and decided to have a round at Axe Cliff GC. A really nice course with some spectacular views. Lots of blind shots which for a 'first timer' made things a bit difficult but...  more »

    As I understand it this club nearly went bust a few years ago and has been acquired in some way by a pair who are trying to bring new life into it. The club has no automated watering system and only 2...  more »

    Played here last weekend with friends on a day trip. We took them up on the round with a meal afterwards for 28 pounds, great value. The course is tough enough to test you but fair enough to make a re...  more »

  • Course has come along way in the last year. The course is a hard course, and very much worth the challenge. Not all golfers like a good challenge! Fairways and Greens were good with clifftop views out across the channel, over Seaton and up the Axe Valley over the wildlife reserve. The clubhouse if full of friendly people and is always welcoming. Great bang for your buck at Axe Cliff!
  • We have been coming to visit this course twice a year for the last 25 years and have always enjoyed the course and the warm welcome in the clubhouse. Unfortunately our recent visit was not enjoyable for some reason the greenkeeper has not cut the grass around all the greens, bunkers and sides of the fairways which not only makes the course look very scruffy but far too difficult. It is not fun being 6 inches off the green and not being able to find your ball because it is in 12 inches of rough! In the future we will play Lyme Regis which is the same price and in immaculate condition.
  • I hate to have to write this kind of review, because the people there were really nice and we had a good day out. The source of fun, however, for our good day out, was trying to work out what was going on at this course. Multiple holes cross over each other, for example the 1st and 18th, where the par 3 18th means you literally tee off over the 1st fairway. This results in waiting for people on the 18th if you are on the 1st, and sometimes random balls on fairways. To add to this, there is an element of "you play at your own risk here", that I've never seen at any other courses. On most holes, you can't see the green from where you tee off so, especially on holes which cross, you are always at risk of being hit by someone's tee shot. Someone I was with at the time did actually get hit on the back by someone's ball. Non-logistically, the course is not great either. The fairways are decent, but that's about it. Tee boxes were too small, and the turf was sometimes so torn up that we had to tee off from beside the tee. The greens were not only very small, but were incredibly hard. Given the clifftop nature of this course, many times, I would reach the green from quite far away, but have to watch in despair as my ball bounced off the green, high into the air, and plummeted over the cliff. What is frustrating about this course is that it has the potential to be great. It has great views of the sea and over nearby Seaton, and is on decent land. Not only this, but neighbouring the course are many ordinary fields which I wonder if they could purchase and create more space for holes. Make of this what you will; if you want a cheap round with nice views, then go for it, but this is certainly not a course I'll be returning to.
  • Very friendly members & staff, challenging, well kept coarse & the views are simply stunning. Well worth a visit.
