Liked. Would visit again.
Pleasantly surprised with our visit given some of the reviews didn’t seem the best. Great day was had though. Not overly busy, nice course layout and managed to get a cheap GolfNow deal. Some of the fairways were quite over-grown though, and rather ironically the guys cutting the grass didn’t seem to want to move away from the greens as you played towards them. All in all a good visit. Worth the money.
Played here before so knew what to expect. Course was quiet and that suited us. Course in good condition although the greens were a bit bare in places. Like playing here so will come again.
I played this course whilst I was on holiday in Ilfracombe and found the course very picturesque and quiet.I thought that the greens were very poor and it spoilt what was otherwise a pleasant afternoon game.
Condition of course very bad,dead grass left everywhere,greens very poor,fairways not even cut and full of daisys, balls very hard to find., very good course ruined.
A lovely day with only two negative observations.
The fairways simply need cutting and there should be signage directing players to the next tee on ALL holes as it is not always obvious.
More of a field than a golf course
This is an excellent hotel with extensive grounds, parts of which are roughly mown to enable people to hack a golf ball through the fields. As a golf course, it is in dreadful condition and is poorly maintained. Can be a nice venue for a short break if you are not serious about your golf
18 holes in the dry
Blessed with good weather for our round. Unfortunately , I’m sure hampered by the weather, the grass was a bit a longer than usual and spotting balls amongst the daisies proved a problem at times. Also, mown grass was left on the ground in places so balls could disappear underneath. On a positive note, it was a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon, we like the layout of the course, and we’ll back again soon.
Played here for the first time and was really pleased with the layout .
There was a couple of negative points the first being that the shop wasn't open but considering the location we guessed it was due to covid .
The greens where slow and very bobbly .
The course layout was really enjoyable and the par 3s would be welcome on any golf course .
We will definitely be returning and touch wood the greens will be a bit better
Obviously little work carried out during lockdown !
Green very very poor and slow
Rough not mowed for awhile
Grsss too long with loose cutting
Would not go back as very frustrated and disappointed as notmallly a great course with interesting views
Currently not worth more than £10 per round more like a farmers field
Beautiful setting, lovely course
Great value for money in beautiful Devon countryside.
Well maintained and a great day out.
Could be so much better
Booked at 8am for a 9.40 start. Turned up only to be told second hole was closed so only 17 holes. Why they didn’t inform golf now or give me a discount I don’t know
Layout is good very confusing between the 11th and 12th with no signs
Greens in very poor condition brown in lots of places and slow
This could be a fantastic course as the layout and views are great but the greens really let it down
Hopefully that can be sorted
Absolutely loved playing this course even though most of the fairways were waterlogged due to the Heavy rain that fell over the previous few days. This slowed play a bit as some balls were burying themselves in with no bounce at all and making them impossible to find. Will definitely have to go back again when the conditions are more favourable.
great please to play
green so much better than earlier in the year and getting better.
Only down side is the ruff-very long in lots of places and easy to lose balls if stray even slightly off course. Especially an issue on 18th.
I know we should keep the ball on the fairway!!! where the fun in in that!
Great value for money course was in very good condition and there was hardly any one playing
Beautiful surroundings and some cracking views. Really enjoyed my round despite the weather. Pay attention to the course guide to ensure you don’t go off track, next tee signage not always obvious.
When I played the rough was very long and unforgiving, beginners would struggle! Maybe due to covid they don’t have the staff? Was being cut at the time meaning my kit got absolutely covered (I took a few too many trips to the long stuff!). Even with this I would go back, fantastic value for money!
Booking disaster but a pleasant game!
Booked through Golfnow and then phoned the hotel to book a buggy. On arrival for our round they said they'd no record of the buggy booking and did not have one to give us! It was the hottest day of the year so as we definitely required a buggy, it was determined that we couldn't play. (As the Pro shop, clubhouse etc are closed you have to go to the hotel reception to check in). The manager booked us in for a complimentary round the next day, with a buggy by way of compensation. On arrival the next day, no sign of our booking altogether ! unbelievably appalling customer service. We eventually managed to get out on the course with a buggy. The course has some wonderful views and some challenging holes, especially the par 3s'.
The course needs much better signage, to point you in the direction of the next tee. Its a good job the course was not busy as we'd have annoyed a fair few people; going back and forth! Some of the greens were not the best, but staffing at the hotel was severely reduced. For the money we paid it was excellent value.
We went back on a Sunday afternoon to play again and literally had the course to ourselves.
A hot one
A hot one. I like this course and it was in good condition when we played. There were a few bare patches on the greens but no real issue. On the day there was cut grass on the rough where we reckon we lost a few balls underneath. Will definitely return.
