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.

Ranked in Golf World’s Top 100 Courses, Great Britain and Ireland and undeniably one of the finest courses in the South East, The Addington provides a true test of golf which continuously challenges and one that you will never tire of.

For those wishing to take up premium golf membership and join an established, traditional golf club, we offer options for both Individual and Corporate membership. Who knows, your name may even join the Honours Board alongside that of King George VI!

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.

I have played the course 4 times previously. In my opinion it is the best course within 5 miles of where I live in Croydon. I thought the ?35 offer was an extremely good deal and value for money. The previous occasions I have played have all been in the summer. I found the course easier with the wetter conditions but obviously not in as good a condition as I remember. However the greens were very good.

All year rounder

Played very well in January before the snow, where most the clay courses are closed with a bit of drizzle The Add drains well pro shop says because on gravel base. Greens superb and impressive course layout with no two holes the same. Will be keen to return in the summer and worth the fees if your a proper golfer.

Very nice course

Greens very fast and difficult to read. Ground hard so difficult to lace ball. But some very attractive holes and the course requires you to think about your shots. Need a shot saver if never played before - blind holes.

Beautifl setting,pity about the condition of the fairways.

I have not played at 'The Addington' for a number of years and although it has wonderful settings for a great golf course I found the condition of the fairways disappointing. This may have been as a result of the summer we have had but other courses I have played recently are in better condition.

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!

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 ????

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.

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.
