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.

Pleasant surprise

Not really knowing what to expect it was a pleasant surprise especially for the way Mark the professional treated us nothing was to much trouble. I will put my hands up I wasn’t expecting to much after a quick look on line first impression was short and lots of par 3’s which is true on paper but in reality the topography or the course makes it play long and interesting and 6 par 3 holes are it’s crowning glory especially the short 75yd 4th over a lost ball quarry to a not very deep fast green not easy by any means the greens were great condition and fast with some very subtle slopes and run offs that if not careful you can easily degrees a putt, it is hilly but after the first initial climb it tends to play along the hills gently climbing high so high up you could see all the way to the mumbles in Wales and yes you can see the sea from every tee. All in all I can find very little to criticise, maybe the couple of cross over holes I’m not a fan of but was having so much fun barely noticed
Will definitely be making a return visit

A little Gem of a course

Stayed local on my hols to this course and always take a bag of clubs in car on hols. Wow what a little gem of a course. Played at 06:30 for two mornings running.
The view's are amazing from every hole and so was the condition of the course. Tees, Fairways, Approaches and Greens all in top tip condition.
The Course is short with 3 x Par 3 on the trot but all three are different from each other and with the wind getting up certainly makes them harder.
The club sec, ground keepers and Chef are all very welcoming to visitors.
All in All a very enjoyable experience, hopefully get back one day.

Great course if not raining and not windy.
The sun was out in mid April and very little wind making the course a joy to play.

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.
