THE ADDINGTON GOLF CLUB
Currently ranked at 27 in Golf World’s Top 100 Courses England, The Addington Golf Club is the flagship course in The Altonwood Group’s portfolio.
With a rich and interesting history, The Addington was designed by JF Abercromby in 1913 and first opened for play in 1919, soon becoming a favourite of the rich and famous. Reaching its heyday in the 1930s, it was written about by many famous writers of the time and played host to film stars, golfing legends and even royalty – King George VI became Patron in 1937!
Today, having undergone a 10 year refurbishment programme resulting in the rebuilding of nine tees, a new drainage system and a woodland management programme to expose some of the magnificent pine trees that are a feature of the course, The Addington presents a golfing experience you will not forget.
A par 69, 6,300 yard course, affording expansive views of the metropolis from hilltop tees like those at the 14th and 16th, The Addington’s fairways wander through mature pine and birch trees to create a feeling of intimacy in stark contrast to the looming mast of Crystal Palace and the backdrop provided by the NatWest Tower, Canary Wharf and the Shard, just 12 or so miles away.
Having retained its heathland beauty & restored wooden bridges which are a feature throughout, The Addington invites you to walk a course virtually unchanged since its creation.
