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.

Was looking forward to playing this course for the first time. If the course had been in good condition it would have ranked in my top 10. However the greens were in terrible condition!! Crows, i guess, had dug most of them into an unplayable surface. Soul destroying if you hit the green in regulation if you 2 putted from anywhere you were doing very well. There was no warning of these greens before we played and no compensation offered. Views were unbelievable and the course layout was good but on a busy day beware a lot of cross over fairways. A Shame!!!

Will divide opinions. Would guess that 75% of tee shots and approach shots are blind depending how far you hit it. Lots of holes crossing other fairways. 16th is a good hole. Greens and bunkers were poor. No mention of temporary green beforehand either was a shame. Good price, not for me however

sea view experience

the holes 2 to 6 are all blind challenges, after these the course opens to dramatic views of the sea. With no tree to deflect the wind, this is the hazard to negotiate.
the 7th is a dramatic view, across a valley, with a huge grass bunker just short on the right. the 15th is parallel with the cliffs and the 16th is a simple drive on the flat, and a chip off the "edge of the world", a very good course

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.
