East Devon Golf Club

Course overview

East Devon Golf Club is one of Devon’s finest golf courses. A heathland course situated on the cliffs above Lyme Bay, within easy reach of Exeter and the M5. East Devon Golf Club is serenely located within the East Devon area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, overlooking the stunning beaches of Sandy Bay and only a short drive from Exeter. The course itself is regarded by many to be one of the finest in the South West and is immaculately kept cliff top course with narrow fairways, fast greens and a sometimes challenging sea breeze blowing in from the channel.

The front 9 has some what of a parkland feel to a number of the holes, however the ever presence of gorse either side of most fairways reminds you of its under lying heathland and even links like nature. If you feel the need to brush up on any aspect of your game before you head out onto the course, East Devon offers state-of-the-art practice facilities with the Academy Course for your long game. There are also mid-iron and short game practice areas available, you can make sure you are completely prepared for the challenges that lie ahead atop the cliffs of this stunning location.

The clubhouse is ideally located to give spectacular views of the 18th hole and out to sea, giving you the opportunity to have a post round beer with quite the view! East Devon is ranked at 74th position in the England top 100 golf courses and is a must play if you are in the area. We recommend looking at our Topsham golf tour which takes in the very best of Exeter golf. East Devon is also an ideal stop off if you are heading further south, just a 10 minute detour from the M5 at Exeter.

  • Can we make changes to our break?

    Managing a group can be a thankless task and changes to the group leading up to your break are an accepted element. We make changes as stress free as possible (just see our reviews for evidence of this!). Changes can be made up to 6 weeks prior to your break. Some changes are unavoidable so for legitimate reasons we will endeavour to make last minute changes after this period, but as we would have paid our venues at this point, this would be at the discretion of the venue(s) you are visiting.

  • How are package prices displayed on our website?

    Prices on our our website are displayed in two ways. The first is on our Resort pages where pricing tables show the from prices for low, mid and high season golf stay and play package rates at golf resort venues.

    The second is on our example tour package pages. There are often 4 prices shown here, two for low season and two for high season. The struck through price typically shows the highest price the tour can be and is often active over weekends in that season. The offer price is typically a mid week price.

    Every tour quote we offer is bespoke and will vary based on a number of factors including the date, availability, group size, room type, time of day for the tee time, etc… Our package pricing is a guide to the cost of the package and is not a firm price. Please enquire for an exact cost.

    We aim to provide as accurate a price as possible and therefore try to avoid using shoulder/mid season pricing or twilight green fee rates when displaying rates. You may find an intermediate price for breaks in months of April & October at certain venues.
