Challenging

Great course that all though not too long presents a real challenge as you negotiate the contours of the hills and get to grips with sloping stances, particularly on the front nine. Good fun.

Pleasant contoured golf with sea views

Lovely setting going up the valley with sea views across the Bay and across town. Holes up, down and across each other provide an interesting challenge where yardages don't mean much. Greens fast and true for seaside golf, but hard to read the contours. Enjoyable and proper golf!

Beautifully challenging.

It was the most physically challenging course I’ve played on, due to the layout. Elevated tees and greens along with sloping steep hills will be a technically testing course for any ability. However frustrating though you might find it, the pleasure of being in complete silence, apart from the birds tweeting in the trees and the odd smash of a driver, make it all the worth while.
You can hire buggies if you’re not up for working your fit bit too hard!!
The only criticism, is the crossing of tees over fairways, and the lack of a bell on the last hole to notify the drivers off the tee that the green is free…..as a good player would probably reach it in one…..I nearly took a bloke out, and I was maybe 20 yards short.
Worth a play….just to say you’ve tried it out. You won’t be disappointed.

Short but fun

Relatively short course but challenging at times. Some hard uphill par 3s and some tough approaches onto raised greens. Probably not challenging for really good players but for mid and high handicappers it gives opportunities for pars and birdies, as well as plenty of chances to miss greens. Drainage seemed great given recent rain, and good exercise on the hill side. Great views. Will be back plenty.

Challenging course

Played for first time with a friend very challenging with undulating greens quite a short course and quite hilly but all in all a very enjoyable experience. Only negative was we were only able to have a bowl of chips after the round which was a little disappointing but staff very friendly.

Really busy, which was to be expected. So play was slow, but the course was in good condition. Will play again soon though.

Great course

Lovely picturesque course. Great views of the surroundings areas, played in the winter so temporary greens were in play on 4 holes and hole 4 was closed, can’t wait for the summer to play here. Lovely hole set up and testing course. Would highly recommend

Sidmouth

A very challenging course due to the fact that the course was placed in a valley, hence the first 9 holes being up hill with a fall to the right and the second nine being down hill with a fall to the left. Strenuous to walk but a great work out and the views were to die for. Loved it!

Generally very enjoyable but it did feel confined and surprisingly busy. Greens in good condition, fairways and paths a little less so. Some difficulty with cross fall on dry fairways. Makes driving accuracy very important.

Be prepared for a number of steep climbs and downhills 8-12. Care is required as some shots are blind and holes cross each other and share fairways, 1/18 and 9/10.

I will play again, in perhaps 6-12 months.

Lovely little shortish course.

Only par 66 but don't let that put you off? Highly undulating with plenty of blind holes, we were glad we hired a buggy. Took a couple holes to get used to, as the ball is well below your feet on the first few on the way out. Beautifully scenic views over the town and some well sculptured holes, Only one par five but plenty of varying par threes, from 120 to over 200 yards with lots of straight ups and downs. I would suggest you buy a course planner, even though there are diagrams of the holes on the tee boxes. Unfortunately the Pro' shop didn't have any when we visited as they hadn't been delivered at that time. Some good advice to us from one of the members was "everything goes to the sea" and he was right.

A special place

I had a really interesting game. A very testing course with little level ground which winds up a steep valley and back down again with woodlands either side. Fantastic sea views .

Breathtaking views

Lovely course with superfast and difficult to read greens. Quite hilly in places so would recommend a buggy if not pretty fit. Used nearly every club in the bag which makes a nice change from the usual driver mid iron that you use on longer courses. Despite being quite short yardage wise, the sloping fairways and hilly topography make it a good challenge. Some of the views are breathtaking, The clubhouse does lovely food, and a good selection of beers and ciders. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend.
