Description:

Ever wondered what it is like to play on a British Open type Links Course....

Ever wondered what it is like to play on a British Open type Links Course. Well Axe Cliff can give you that feel. With spectacular views of the Jurassic Coast, Axe Cliff is a Little Gem in East Devon. A challenging course with gorse grass if you hit wayward shots, but enjoyable if you manage your game just like the professionals. Many feature holes will make you want to play them again and again. Love or hate Links courses, Axe Cliff is here to please.

Sorry about the ball magnet nestling in Lyme Bay. You were playing on what was a busy day for us, so if you thought the pace of play was good then you could play nearly any other day and fly around. We have even had golfers stop for a picnic in the rough next to the cliff edge as we... More

Thank you Chris. I don't know why we have such a special set of members who help visitors at every opportunity; perhaps it is the ozone that makes them light headed and happy.

We were informed that the course was manageable without a buggy. We are glad that we listened to ourselves and hired a buggy. The course is very hilly in places, so if you struggle with your legs it's wise to get a buggy, otherwise you will probably regret it from the fist hole.

I am really sorry that our staff were unable to pick out individuals that will or will not be able to navigate our course on foot. The fact that most of our members are elderly and walk the course may have influenced their decision to suggest you walk it. We have ten new buggies and it is in our interest... More

...I had the pleasure of playing this course twice last week whilst in Devon on holiday. Really cracking course, which has a lot of blind holes/shots so make sure you pick up a course guide and read it well. Course is in great condition, lots of lovely typical tight links lies and greens mostly running true. Some stunning views (especially... More

Excellent review and it demonstrates the marmite style comments we get about the various holes. We all have a love it or fear it feel about different holes on the course and that is why it is always interesting.
