What the club says: We are a privately run members club offering a warm welcome to visiting golfers and societies. The course is situated 1 mile east of Ilfracombe towards Combe Martin on the magnificent North Devon coastline and offers spectacular views along the coast and across the Bristol Channel to South Wales. The 18 hole course is well maintained throughout the year and although not the longest, the undulations and prevailing South Westerlys will still offer up a challenge to golfers of all abilities. Whilst visiting why not treat yourself to a buggy from the Pro Shop and ride around in Style.

Be prepared its hilly

I could not believe how hilly the course was - I would suggest booking a buggy.
Watch the course video as a number of holes are blind and the course has a set of crossing fairways (I lost a ball through the crossing four ball played my ball in error)
The course was in god condition and the greens were great.

great course

Ilfracombe is a great course to play, it can be forgiving on some holes and test your driving ability on other holes plus the views for each tee box are spectacular

I have played many courses over the years but I can safely say the views from this course are absolutely stunning. The people were very friendly, too. My only negative would be the criss crossing of 4 holes, which is one of my pet hates, and a strange set up at 16/17 which resulted in having to take my drives for both holes before completing the 16th

Camber on the course is unforgiving, the breeze was really stiff, very difficult playing conditions for a below average golfer

Stunning views and course in dry good nick. Greens not the quickest and a lot of blind shots if you haven't played before but saying that is a great test of golf and really enjoyed.

Played for the first time, a little windy but course and greens were in fantastic condition.
Other members made us feel welcome and guy from pro shop was most helpful.
In my opinion this is a little gem of a course and a must to play.
We will definitely be returning!!!

Nice course and £22 midweek green fee for 10am tee off so quite reasonable. As a high handicapper very tricky course given time of year the rough (and there's lots of it) was knee high in the most part. However, very pleasant course with great views and some lovely holes so issue was definitely my ability on the day and not the course. Enjoyed the round and would definitiely play again if in the area.

To many cross overs. A farmers field turned into a golf course. Sea views from every hole but that still is not worth the £30 round. Won't rush back really but glad I played it.

Very quirky but interesting course. Fantastic views from every hole and a good challenge. Fairways and greens in excellent condition and very relaxed and warm atmosphere in the clubhouse. Good value for money and would definitely play again. Must be very tough when the wind blows!!!!!
