What the club says: The Course, 6404 yards, par 71, SSS 72, was designed by J.H.Taylor and Fred Hawtree in 1930, and is well known for its variety of demanding holes through wooded glades and picturesque parkland. Set in the grounds of Addington Palace, the previous home of Archbishops of Canterbury, we boast consistently well-manicured greens throughout the year.

Great challenge

Course was in great nick. As a non member i found it a lot harder then some of the pay and play courses i'm use too but would highly recommend. Front 9 is a challenge with some tight holes.

Can't wait to revisit

Played here before we were all forced to batten down the hatches - and I just can't wait to get back in the better weather, when it opens to green fees again.

Tight front 9, opening up a tad on the back - there are many holes that look beautiful, play well for golfers of all standards and punish a wayward shot. Greens are like lightning, too!

The wind direction also plays its part - into our faces on 17/18 it made them difficult to score well.

Lovely setting (passing the old Palace a few times during the round is a treat) and a gem of a track.

Definitely the best course in the area and I include its better known neighbour in that - I'd play the Palace over the pricier, less well maintained, 'The Addington' any day.

Excellent condition and tough course

Definitely the best kept and maintained golf course I have played over this winter. Greens were immaculate and fast (@ 12 on stimp). MAnaged to play this before lockdown and there was already social distancing in clubhouse and restaurant areas. Quite a "hilly" course and not for the feint hearted.HAd a 2-4-1 voucher but that was a prise and not usually avaialble so that is why great value.

Hadn't played here for a while. Course in good nick and greens rolled well. Enjoyable round as course has a decent amount of variety including several changes in elevation as you meander around. Good meal post round. Look forward to going back.

Slick greens

Enjoyed the course but first time I?ve played on greens that fast and I personally found it tricky when it came to putting. The greens were in excellent conditions and this is definitely not a complaint.
Didn?t have food or drink there so can?t comment.

Great challenging course

This course is excellent. The all year quality of the greens is better than any nearby course. Only minor issue is the variable quality of the bunkers. Good progress made on a number of them but still a couple needing improved.
Food and drink is of a good standard at a good price.

Played here recently and was very happy with the course. Greens were fast an true even in March. Fairways are beaten up but then again the weather last year has not helped this, they are like most heathland courses.\Several reviews have compared this course favourably to the more prestigious neighbour and I would agree with that, the holes are varied, (short and long par 4\'s) and never a dull moment. Of course its neighbour is still a lovely course but I found that to be more heathland than the palace. \\Plus should add, the meet & greet gentleman was very helpful - nice touch

Played this week in their “open week”. The course was beautifully presented and it was difficult to believe the amount of snow and rain only a few days before. The was no mud, perfect greens and lush fairways. No wonder they host this event in February! Recommend anyone to pay a visit. Front 9 holes are tight, tree lined and tactical. The back 9 more parkland, longer but more generous fairways. Easy access from central London, entrance directly opposite tram stop. Without a car, it’s perfect.

Great Course and worth a visit

A lovely character course, in great condition for the winter months. A really impressive layout with a variation of hole types, from tactically short, to long difficult par 4's. Having played in February after a period of heavy rain, the course was in great condition, and the greens exceptionally fast, and running very true. Looking forward to playing them in the summer. The course can be likened to Woburn Dukes on the back nine. Plenty of challenges for all levels of golfers. So great was the course, that i signed up to membership on the same day with an attractive offer for new members.

Knocks spots off its well-known neighbour

Addington Palace presents a tough test. Tight, unforgiving front nine opens up to more room on the back, although a slip in focus will be punished on any hole.

The course is in tremendous condition all year round, with lightning fast greens and fast-draining fairways. The polar opposite to next door's The Addington, which drains poorly and, with the occasional 'Mickey Mouse' hole, doesn't live up to the 'Top 100' hype.

Addington Palace is a tough but fair test of golf - good shots get their just reward, a wayward one usually requiring the golfer to take their medicine.

Some beautiful holes that would grace any course (the Par 4 8th being a prime example), on a Capability Brown landscape, if you haven't played I just can't recommend highly enough.

Great course and a good challenge especially the 2nd and 10th which are both long par 4's playing considerably up hill. Course was in good condition barring some work to the 10th tee. Greens were good and rolled well. Excellent value at £20 for twilight round and I zipped round at 3pm. Helpful chap in the pro shop. Only played here a couple of times but have enjoyed both rounds. Should play it more often.
