The golf course
As the longest running golf club in East Devon, our history underpins our prestigious reputation.
The par 69, 6018 yard layout features four new holes and is a test for all abilities, over the full 18 holes or the 7 / 9 hole loops. The 120 acre parkland course has mature trees, water features, sculpted bunkers, manicured fairways and nurtured greens with excellent drainage meaning the course remains open for most of the year.
getting started with your golf membership
Men’s golf membership spaces are limited – we have less than 10 memberships left – it’s great to be popular!
Women’s golf is growing, but more slowly than men’s. With women’s-only coaching sessions and no joining fee for ladies (a saving of £300) we would love to see more ladies getting into golf.

Family golf is really important to us and members often say that golf is a great way to spend time together as a family. Up to four hours all-together in the fresh air, walking and playing a fun sport is something many families would benefit from. Learn together and play together – we offer family Get Into Golf programmes so children and parents can learn to play golf together. If mum or dad can already play, our Junior Golf Academy is the perfect way to get youngsters on the golf course in no time at all. Sundays are quiet and the best time for a round of family golf.
