What the club says: The course has remained virtually unchanged since its design 95 years ago which is testament to the skilled design ability of Aber who looked upon The Addington as his finest creation. Like many great courses The Addington has the advantage of an ideal site. The fairways wander through mature pine and birch trees which create a real feeling of intimacy, yet the course still affords expansive views of the metropolis from hilltop tees like that at the 14th & 16th.

Crystal Palace's towering mast looms in the foreground, while the NatWest Tower, Canary Wharf and the 'Shard' provide a marvellous contrast to the rich woodland.



Most Helpful Review

This is one of the most highly ranked courses within the SE quadrant of the M25 (according to reviews) and I was very keen to finally put that ranking to the test. I played on an overcast but mild Saturday afternoon during Ryder Cup weekend so the course was generally very quiet for my 1.30pm tee off.

After checking in I was (sensibly) rushed onto the easily accessible 2nd tee to avoid getting stuck behind a 3 and 4 ball just teeing off. There were pro's and cons to this. The obvious advantage was that I didn't get stuck behind 2 groups when playing alone, the other less obvious was that it avoided playing a disapointingly tame 1st hole which is a fairly featureless 150 yard Par 3.

The downside was that my leisurely round started in a rush and I then played a stinker on the 2nd!! Thankfully my game and the course picked up from there on in.

Overall this was a thoroughly enjoyable golfing experience and I don't use the term experience lightly. I can't confess to having played a large number of the Top 100 courses but few have stayed in the memory the way the Addington did. Its not overly long but with four 420 yard par 4's all playing slightly, two sweeping Par 5's and long par 3's uphill it uses its natural terrain and flora and fauna superbly to offer a course which is very easy on the eye but always testing and requring (in my case) every club in the bag.

The stand out holes are perhaps obvious being the the longer Par 3's (the 13th and 17th) which both just gave me a shiver down the spine just standing on the tee. Certainly it helped that I parred them both but this is not a biased view, just pay your green fee and take it all in. Other stand out holes were the 9th dog leg requiring two well juged shots over the heather filled ravine and then the 12th an outrageous Par 5 played over a sweeping hillside back down to a deep rave before an approach to a another excellent sloping green.

I could go on but suffice to say its one of the more memorables courses I've ever played, its very attractive, short but offers a good test of golf and in generally wet late summer conditions the greens were in excellent condition. The Clubhouse is a little old fashioned (and the entrance wasn't clear!) but overall it appeared to be a decent mix of old and modern on both the lounge and changing rooms.

The only real downside for me was that its a good 45 min drive through a congested part of South East London and with an annual membership fee of over £2000 p.a. I'll (sadly) never be a member.

However I did book my tee time through 'teetimes.co.uk' and paid £45 for a Saturday afternoon round which I think is very good VFM considering the ranking of the course.

(Though I'd be horrified at having to pay the full price of £100 which is enough to scare off most casual golfers) - Oct 11 2010

Tired
She needs a bit of a refurb. Some lovely holes and some plain ones. The club house is looking quite tired. Not worth the 80 quid green fee.

Excellent course with great views
Had been wanting to visit here for a while and wasn't disappointed when the day finally came. Made to feel welcome as soon as I arrived. Course was interesting with lots of holes where just grabbing the big stick wasn't the best move. Incredible pretty course both with the on course layout and views across London.

Countryside in the heart of Croydon!
Played this course last week while visiting the in-laws in Beckenham. Was a bit surprised when my brother in law said he had booked one of the top courses in England in nearby Croydon but it was superb. It was a freezing but soft day so not much run on the fairways so some of the par 4s played very long but overall it is a shortish course with some beautiful holes. The course really kicks into gear from about the 5th hole onwards with shots across ravines with lovely wooden bridges to cross. My personal favourite was the par 5 12th. As pretty as some of the holes we played recently at Druids Glen. I would love to play again in the summer but a few shots would need to be 'down clubbed' as the extra run would rule out driver on a few holes. A bit pricey but then again it is England and it is golf so to be expected!

lovely course, very pretty. Greens quick for November and very good tee boxes. Practice facilities limited to 1 net, but otherwise a course that I will certainly return to.

Beautiful and unique course
What a treat to play The Addington in October.

A golf course sculpted by nature with a great variety of holes, many of them memorable to play and to look at . A really unique lay out and in great condition when we played.

Got a green fee and breakfast for £50.

Greens were true and decent speed.

A treat to play here . Not the cheapest but certainly one of the very best courses around .

Hope to return ????

Another good round at the Addington
Great course, especially so close to London with some cracking views. Some lovely holes and enough of a challenge whilst offering a good chance to score.

Fantastic course worth visiting
Course is in fantastic condition and offers a difference challenge. Don't be put off because it's a Par 69, this is a challenging course with some spectacular holes.

Well worth a visit!

Nice course but overpriced green fees
This is a very attractive course to play and testing too. Some beautiful holes once you get into the round. However, Clubhouse is dated and the green fees are overpriced. Also, the course struggles in places with drainage in the winter.

Beautiful course, very difficult at times and even a straight drive can get punished with an awkward bounce on the fairway. Would definitely play again as its set in stunning woodland. Greens were perfect condition although fairly slow.
