The Addington Golf Club
Located only 13 miles, or 30 minutes, from the centre of London The Addington Golf Club, designed in 1912 by John Frederick Abercromby, accredited as being ‘one of the outstanding architects in all of golf’, is one of the best inland courses in the UK.
If you have never visited The Addington you wouldn’t believe you were so close to the centre of London. 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 Nat West Tower, Canary Wharf and the incongruous Swiss Re building (otherwise known as ‘The Gherkin’) provide a marvellous contrast to the rich woodland.
Originally gravel hills, the rugged landscape features several ravines throughout and has become heavily wooded over time. In picking this site, Abercromby left no doubt that his intent from the start was to build a challenging course which, although frequently ‘tinkered with’ by Abercromby, who looked upon The Addington as his finest creation, has remained virtually unchanged since its design.
The Addington is an extraordinary golfing paradise and is without doubt one of the finest courses in the South East. Now ranked in Golf Worlds Top 100 Courses in Great Britain and Ireland, The Addington is a hidden gem just waiting to be discovered and enjoyed, with some truly memorable holes that will remain long in the memory.
The Addington will challenge and excite golfers of all abilities. With no one hole the same The Addington ensures golfers will need every shot in the bag to navigate their way round this exceptional golf course.
The jewel in the Altonwood Golf crown, The Addington was the most recent acquisition by the Group and has since benefitted from a programme of course improvements, which have led to a promotion within the Top 100 ranking and will ensure its longevity as a premier heath land course for many more years to come.
The Addington welcomes private and corporate societies looking for an easy to organise golf day packed with excellent golf, superb catering and welcoming staff.
