Now closed but not advertised as such. Mismanaged and the courses have been left to seed. Such a shame for an iconic course! There're some cottages and a crappy 'pool' but nothng else. Considering what Woolacombe has to offer its a shame that such a beautiful spot is being run by people that have no heart, interest or passion in... More

Stayed in the cottage of a friend for 5 days on a mini golf tour and finished off with a round here on Sunday. I'd have no hesitation in playing there again. A few problems with the clubhouse but golf just fine.

I contact this company to complain neatly 4 weeks ago and they haven't bothered at all so now I am going to place this review. We were very disappointed with number 37. It wasn't worth nearly £800! 1) Didn't like not having a key to get in 2) very large thistle was growing over the step which could've given a... More

Have regularly spent our golfing trips to this place and suits our needs perfectly over the mainly years now .sadly the greens and bunkers especially were in poor condition this October with many marked GUR and apparently being made redundant which is a shame as the course itself could be very good with outstanding views more work on the greens...

A very quirky golf course. First few holes are brilliant and there are some nice holes on the back nine too. Clubhouse is a bit dated, but I liked it as it reminded me of 'old school' golf. Some of the greens and bunkers weren't in great condition. But we had a great day out and the club aren't stuffy... More

Good points: Warm Welcome, Cheap, good for beginners, not stuffy, not difficult. Bad points: Poor course maintenance. Quite simply it used to be a lot better. I could go into great detail. Poor maintenance across the board. I have played here before more than once over the years and it was very disappointing. Simply, go and play at Ilfracombe. It... More
