Steeped in history, The Addington Golf Club was built during 1913-14, enjoying its heyday in the 1920s and 1930s when it was the most favoured golf club in Surrey, frequented by notable English society and celebrities alike. Since its acquisition in 2006 by The Altonwood Group, the Club has benefited from extensive improvement and has been ranked 27th in England.
What style is the course at The Addington Golf Club?
Designed by JF Abercromby, The Addington's par 69, heathland course covers more than 6,000 yards (off competition tees).
Golf here is a real challenge, where wooden bridges carry players over deep ravines throughout and hidden bunkers, like the one on the 6th, require steps down to them.
What is the feature hole?
The Addington has had much written about it over the years, with many holes being selected as 'favourites'.
The bunker on 6th was well noted by 1920s author, PG Wodehouse, who signed his preface in 'The Heart of a Goof' ... PG Wodehouse, the 6th bunker, Addington.
However, the par 3 13th and the challenging 16th are sure to remain in the memory.
What sort of course features can the player expect?
The Addington remains primarily as it was originally laid out by Abercromby, although additions have been made to bring it up to date with current expectations.
However, original features remain, such as the wooden bridges which span deep ravines. The clubhouse, which replaced that which was burned down in the 1950s, also remains.
