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. The course provides an interesting challenge for high and low handicap golfers alike.



Most Helpful Review

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. - May 22 2018

Fantastic course in tree lined setting
Absolutely fantastic course and facilities. A mix of holes - some very challenging, some with great opportunities for pars and birdies. Fantastic views from many of the holes.

Ralph P rated 4 out of 5 - Mar 22 2018

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.

Great winter course
There are no signs of temporary greens. Despite constant rain for the past few days, the course was dry and the greens in good condition. Plenty of parking, which you don’t always find. Lovely clubhouse and will be worth the visit in summer on it’s own.

Sebastian rated 5 out of 5 - Sep 7 2017

Best in South London
Played in Aug on a week day and what a surprise. Friendly welcome, reasonable, easy access from London, lovely putting green in the middle of fine old buildings, it just lacks a driving range like so many of these traditional club. Presumably they were too good to practice at the time?!
Now about the course: a fun and charming layout with all the character of these Golden era gems. Not too long but very varied: up, down, blind, open, very short and very long par 4s. We had great fun and most importantly the greens and fairways were absolutely superb. Tough and tortuous greens..you'd better be a good putter! Used all the clubs in the bag and I can't remember last time I did. Played twice at The Addington next door. You can forget about it. How can it be rated higher than AP? It's got nice views and a few spectacular holes and errr..that is it. Pace is awful, many non-descript holes and course in dreadful condition.
I have found Addington Palace and will happily return there. All the holes are smart, except maybe the 3rd where the green is bizarrely stuck on a narrow ledge with no relief space.
Yes, the end is a bit weaker than the start, someone mention the first 12 holes being the best, but you can include 13, a classic good looking 4.5 par and the very picturesque 14 in it as well.
Ok, this is no Sunningdale, but if you want a a lovely afternoon of golf on a fun old course with excellent greens, look no further.
The best in South London, by a mile.

Simon K, London rated 5 out of 5 - Sep 29 2015

Undulating, mature course in superb condition. Greens are firm and fast, but still receptive to a well-struck shot.

Broadly, the front nine is tighter than the back, yet there is still plenty of variety in each loop.

Traditional clubhouse with a fine welcome, along with a lovely courtyard to sit and soak up the sunshine after the round.

Well worth playing more than once to appreciate the design and to better understand positioning off the tee.

Played here for the first time. Good deal via teeofftimes at £20 post 12pm. Really enjoyable course. Plenty of variety in the course and some decent views across London at the higher points of the course. Course in good condition and well worth playing. Will be back for another round soon.
