Overview

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.

We are very used to walkers looking a little unkempt so no worries there. Yes we are a golf club but we are not of the snooty variety. Both the staff and the members are very happy to greet newcomers. After all the Jurassic walk...More

That is very heart warming to hear. We have 10,000 walkers pass through the first fairway and very few pop in for refreshment. I think it is the traditions of golf clubs being snooty and unwelcoming. I am sure that your review will help to...More

We are very lucky to have such Panoramic views of the Devon coast. We make the best of them and I am pleased to say it was me that replaced the decking area and spruced it up. Thank you for your kind words.

Thank you so much. We really want people to have a good time and it all has to be a total package nowadays. It is no longer good enough just to provide a well kept golf course. The hospitality is equally important.
