Axe Cliff Golf Club is a cliff side links style, golf course, with fantastic panoramic views along the Jurassic coast. The first six holes are quite undulating, but the rest of the course is either fairly flat or downhill. It is a par 70 for Men and 73 for Ladies. The course was first designed by James Braid in 1894. He was one of the great triumvirate of course designers of his time and has designed hundreds of courses around the World. The Jurassic coastal path runs through the course which has been diverted inland slightly. The golfer has the benefit of playing alongside the original path; which now forms part of the cliff edge. The 16th hole is a spectacular drop hole which borders the cliff. An almost vertical drop of 100 yards down to a plateau of a green with Seaton beach and Lyme Bay as it's backdrop; must make this one of the best vistas on a golf course anywhere. The professional who ran the club many years ago would say to visiting golfers: the price is two shillings and sixpence; that's two shillings for the views and sixpence for the round.
