Owner description: Ever wondered what it is like to play on a British Open type Links Course. Well Axe Cliff can give you that feel. With spectacular views of the Jurassic Coast, Axe Cliff is a Little Gem in East Devon. A challenging course with gorse grass if you hit wayward shots, but enjoyable if you manage your game just like the professionals. Many feature holes will make you want to play them again and again. Love or hate Links courses, Axe Cliff is here to please.

We played the course on May 23rd. 2013
A very warm welcome at the clubhouse - and excellent lunch washed down with an excellent pint - green fee paid and the enquiry ' is the course very hilly?' was met with a non-commital 'not really'.

We then fought our way up a one in seven incline to the first tee and the round began. The course was in excellent condition - and I'm sure that if I was a regular here, after a few rounds I'd be in excellent condition too. Honesty compels me to add that after the first six 'not really hilly' holes we headed for the more open level parkland delights of the cliff top section of the course.

The hurricane hit us on the 16th - not a hole to mess with in sunny calm weather - let alone in a 50mph cross wind - but hey - power fades and subtle draws are meat and drink to 23 handicappers like us - and the front (with all its occlusions) passed through in less than 10 mins and we were playing the last two holes in sunshine.

We both loved the course and want to play it again - It's quirky - full of surprises - plenty of risk/reward options for any standard of golf. Some of the views are stunning! This is a gem.

Whilst our husbands enjoyed golf on the Axe Cliff Golf Course my friend and I enjoyed toasted teacakes and a pot of tea out on the veranda of the club house. The views of the Jurassic Coastline of Lyme Bay were quite stunning. The sunshone but the wind was blowing quite cold so we didn't spend too long outside. Inside we went-- to sit on comfy sofas. Staff here at Axe Cliff are very friendly and accommodating.
Be aware of the VERY steep drive up to the clubhouse though.
