What the club says: Designed by five times open champion James Braid , who has designed the layouts for many courses in the country. The traits of his design are shown with narrow fairways and challenging greens. This is one of the oldest courses in Devon and definitely one of the most scenic. The Jurassic walk runs through the course and there are views from Weymouth to Torquay.

A "must play" course, high up overlooking Lyme Bay and beyond. Some very interesting holes, especially 16.

Tough course, great views

Made the annual visit again to Axe Cliff golf club. Weather always seems to be kind and the views from the course are spectacular. A good variety of holes and some challenging hills and undulations. Lots of blind shots can be a little frustrating with long grass and bushes to catch you out. The greens were in poor condition this year but it was still an enjoyable round with a welcoming clubhouse and reasonably priced drinks afterwards.

Played on 16/05/2017. Course and hospitality brilliant though not recommended for anyone with dodgy knees or asthmatic [like me]. It has some steep climbs and a number of blind shots. The weather on the day meant I was unable to complete the round but I was given a free pass for my next visit. I would thoroughly give this course the thumbs up, nice course and nice people

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 from 15/16) and some very interesting holes (16th in particular). If you get a chance, turn up and play in the Thursday evening roll-up which is played as a foursome, you'll be made to feel very welcome and may even win a prize (well played young Finn). I shall most definitely play this course again.

Played after a few days of rain and was very impressed with condition of course. No soggy ground. Drainage obviously very good. Whole course was in good condition, and much better than other courses in the area we have played, after rainy spells. Will be playing there many times I think thru the winter.

I've just played the course, good condition (greens don't hold at all through the good drainage) extremely enjoyable walk with some of the best views in the world from a course (and clubhouse) anywhere. Great exercise, but golf carts available if required. Friendly staff, cheap drinks (too cheap) and well worth a visit.

A really enjoyable course to play at any time of year. It's really improved since I played there last the rough has been cut back so you don't have to spend ages looking for your ball.
Great views and an interesting layout , bit tricky if it's your first visit with the blind tee shots, just hit it hard at the black and white pole ! Some good deals on food in the clubhouse too

Played here last week. Due to the high elevation of the course, drainage is excellent. There are some very special holes here. The 16th is a hole like no other with a 50 ft drop half way down the fairway. Always play here at Easter whilst on holiday, great views over Seaton. Highly recommend.
