Situated on the cliff top above Budleigh Salterton, at the western end of the World Heritage Jurassic Coast and in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty the course commands magnificent views.
At 6231 yards, it is not a long course but the well drained fairways, close cropped links turf and testing undulating greens offer a fair and interesting test of golf.
Add to this, the colours, views, the breezes, the stunning natural habitat with a variety of wildlife and you have the ideal place to enjoy your golf.
Thanks to excellent drainage the course is rarely closed due to rain, though, occasionally, a mist rolls in from the Channel. Visit us and you won’t be disappointed.
Members are often heard to say: ‘Even if I am having a bad round I still enjoy the spectacular views and realise how lucky I am to be here.’
June 24th and 25th Bath and Kingsdown
Bath Web Site
Affectionately known as “Sham Castle” by the locals, the course earned its nick-name from the neighbouring architectural folly Sham Castle. The ‘castle’ stands in a field adjoining the course and although appearing to be the entrance gate to an impressive baronial hall, is in fact nothing more than a single wall. Built during Bath’s 18th century heyday at the request of seriously wealthy Ralph Allen, it was built with his own Bath stone in order, as he himself wrote, "to charm all visitors to Bath".

August 27th and 28th Frinton and Ipswich
Frinton Web Site
With a total length of 6265 yards, including five holes between 462 and 495 yards, and four holes of around 400 to 430 yards, the Havers Course is long enough and difficult enough to test the skill and nerves of any class of player. Do not expect to shoot par golf if on unhappy terms with a driver. Second shots are by no means easy and even after hitting the fairway the player must have control with every club in the bag.
Ipswich Web Site
Forty years later the Bixley Course (9 hole course) was added – enjoying the same splendid heathland terrain as the main course.
September 24th and 25th Kenilworth and Little Aston
Kenilworth Web Site
Little Aston Web Site
Little Aston is predominently a Parkland course set in the mature former estate of Little Aston Hall and has a beauty all of its own. In recent years the course has been lengthened and certain holes have been modified partly to offset the march of modern technology. An array of new tees has boosted the yardage and in a number of cases the angles into the greens have altered too, adding more strategy to an already strategic test.
From the men's back tees the course now measures 6,813 yards with a challenging par of 72 and Standard Scratch of 74.
