Northleigh, near Honiton
Courses: Honiton – Axe Cliff – Sidmouth – Lyme Regis
Honiton Golf Club is a lovely course set high in the hills to the east of Honiton town with splendid views across to the Blackdowns. Established in 1896 the greens are maintained in excellent condition as are the fairways. The fourth tee is the first technical challenge with a number of others starting out tight. Although in the hills the course itself is relatively flat to play, but it does boast beautiful views in all directions, and benefits include smart clubhouse facilities with a friendly atmosphere.
Axe Cliff is a par 70 at just under 6000 yards with a good mix of par 3, 4 and 5 holes. Some are short and tricky and some are long and scenic. The first six holes are the most challenging to walk but the course flattens out from the 8th, 9th 10th and even flatter next to the cliffs with some spectacular finishing holes as you drop down off the cliff side. The final hole is a par 3 across the Jurassic walk and has been described as one of the best par 3’s in the country.
A golfing jewel in the crown is a fitting description of Sidmouth Golf Club. Overlooking the fine Regency town of Sidmouth the 1889 J H Taylor designed course enjoys wonderful sea views from its undulating fairways, and there are beautiful scenes to be savoured throughout the 18 holes.
Lyme Regis’s 18 hole par 71 course occupies a cliff top site with coastal views towards Portland Bill and overlooks the Historical town and World Heritage Site of Lyme Regis, It is a challenging test, with a sea breeze, ideal for all abilities.
