Owner description: Members are often heard to say: ‘Even if I am not having a good round I still enjoy the spectacular views and realise how lucky I am to be playing golf here.’ At East Devon Golf Club we extend a friendly welcome to members and visitors alike. Situated on the cliff top above Budleigh Salterton, at 6344 yards the well drained fairways, close cropped links turf and challenging greens offer a fair and interesting test of golf. Add to this, the views, colours and the stunning natural habitat and you have the ideal place to enjoy your golf. Thanks to excellent drainage the course is rarely closed due to adverse weather conditions and exceptional golf can be enjoyed all year round. Visit us and you won’t be disappointed.

Good test of golf for all handicaps. Get passed the first two holes and then each hole sets you different test. Warm welcome in the club house and the food is excellent. A good pro shop and Trevor is very helpful.

We have been visiting East Devon for several years and have never been disappointed with the welcome, the course or the food. I have a rule of thumb that I don't travel more than an hour's drive from home for a game of golf and East Devon is well over two hours away which says something about my feelings about this place.

There is quite a bit of gorse and even more heather around to catch a wayward shot and even with a good drive you have to also have a good second or could find the wrong side of the green with an impossible putt. It's a course you have to think you way around but do take the time to look back as the views are stunning.

After the round the bar is a relaxing place to spend a little time admiring the view out to sea. It's also worth trying the restaurant as well, as the food is first rate with very friendly service.

All in all it's a great day out.

Just been for dinner at the golf club, while on a visit to Budleigh. They are a very friendly bar staff and go out of there way to help visitors to the club.

East Devon is a great course, even though its a relatively short. If you end up in the heather with your drive, there's no guarantee you will get a good contact for your second shot. The Greens are like playing on glass in the summer - 3 putting on some holes is no disgrace. They are probably the best greens in Devon.
The views from the 9th and 16th are amazing - you can see for miles on a clear day. Peter Alliss once described the view from the 16th tee as the best view in golf.
The Clubhouse is pretty good too, although the drinks are a bit on the expensive side for a Golf Club. The food is ok but the staff are exceedingly good, especially Janis.

Thank staffsjc
