Designed in 1913 by John Frederick Abercromby, The Addington is a fine course which will challenge and excite golfers of all abilities.
Affording expansive views of the metropolis from hilltop tees like those at the 14th and 16th, the fairways wander through mature pine and birch trees and create a feeling of intimacy in stark contrast to the looming mast of Crystal Palace and the backdrop provided by the Natwest Tower, Canary Wharf and the Shard.
With no two holes the same, The Addington ensures golfers will need every shot in the bag to navigate their way round this exceptional course and promises a challenging game which will remain long in the memory.
You may struggle to pick your favourite, but perhaps the 230 yard par 3, 13th – described by golf writer and former member Henry Longhurst, as ‘with the exception of the 5th at Pine Valley, near Philadelphia, the greatest one-shot hold in inland golf’- will feature?
Having undergone a programme of course improvements over the last few years, The Addington is, without doubt, one of the finest courses in South East England and is ranked 27 in Golf World’s Top 100 Courses, England.
