The Addington Golf Club is only 13 miles south of the centre of London and a five minute drive from the busy Croydon train station, but it is truly golf's secret garden - a hidden world of golfing delights where there are often more foxes and deer on the course than golfers. Part of the charm of The Addington is the complete seclusion the club provides from the bustling City of London. The layout wanders through thickets of bushy trees like the tight-bending eighth hole, yet still affords expansion views of the metropolis from hilltop tees like that at the 14th Many visitors are impressed by the "Old World Charm" of both the Course and Clubhouse where the traditions of golf are maintained. This does not mean that modern Greenkeeping practices do not apply, quite the contrary! The quality of the greens is of the highest, even in winter, this is a gem waiting to be discovered. The best place in the area to play golf! Heather, braken, pine and birches abound to make a beautiful setting for an absolute classic of a golf course. The 3rd and 13th are arguably amongst the finest par 3's in the world. Perhaps the only disadvantage is that the back nine is hilly making it trying for the unfit.
