Three of us attended here for a game this month. Although the greens were scorched in places (to be expected given the heatwave) the course was lovely and there were some great views. The regular members were very friendly and we had a great day...More

Thanks James. We appreciate your understanding in respect of the greens. We are a free draining course so when we have drought conditions we have no chance to keep it green. The up side is that we are open nearly every day of the year....More

We are very used to walkers looking a little unkempt so no worries there. Yes we are a golf club but we are not of the snooty variety. Both the staff and the members are very happy to greet newcomers. After all the Jurassic walk...More

That is very heart warming to hear. We have 10,000 walkers pass through the first fairway and very few pop in for refreshment. I think it is the traditions of golf clubs being snooty and unwelcoming. I am sure that your review will help to...More

Thank you for a great review. Your detail and analysis of the course is spot on! It is not a course that you can play once and master it. There are so many nuances that there is always a new challenge. The cost of a...More

We are very lucky to have such Panoramic views of the Devon coast. We make the best of them and I am pleased to say it was me that replaced the decking area and spruced it up. Thank you for your kind words.

Thank you so much. We really want people to have a good time and it all has to be a total package nowadays. It is no longer good enough just to provide a well kept golf course. The hospitality is equally important.
