Axe Cliff Golf Club is a scenic course designed by legendary golf course architect, James Braid. It is one of the oldest courses in Devon having been founded in 1894.


On January 30th 1894 at the Clarence Hotel in Seaton, thirteen gentlemen unanimously resolved to form a Golf Club. Dr Pattinson was voted into the chair and Samuel Sanders Stephens Esq. was appointed President. The entrance fee and the annual subscription were fixed at one guinea (10/6 for ladies). In 1895 the Rev. R.A.Brackenbury proposed that a bar be established in the clubhouse.


On September 19th 2014 Mr & Mrs Wellington volunteered to fund and run Axe Cliff out of a steep curve of decline. Axe Cliff became a Community Amateur Sports Club. Since then the kitchens and food arrangements have been completely revamped. The Club House has undergone an internal and external renovation enhancing the views out over the coast. A new Pro-Shop is now open. A fleet of modern buggies are resplendant with new liveries. Most importantly the course has been transformed by an army of volunteers and a hard working staff. Seeing is believing!
