Summary:

Addington Palace Golf Club, founded in 1930, is a members golf club, situated 2 miles outside of Croydon in Surrey.
The course, set in the grounds of Addington Palace, the previous home of Archbishops of Canterbury, is laid out over a mixture of mature woodland and picturesque parkland, and presents a fair test of golf.
We are proud of the layout and condition of our course, which received great acclaim when we recently hosted the Surrey Amateur Championships
The clubhouse, which in former times was the stableyard for the Palace, is set around an attractive courtyard, and provides full bar and catering facilities. It is an ideal surrounding in which to relax after your round of golf.
The club welcomes visitors and societies, and caters for business functions, private functionsand wedding parties.
The Course, 6404 yards, par 71, SSS 71, was designed by J.H.Taylor 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. We recently hosted the Surrey Amateur Championships.
The front nine is lined with rhodedendron, birch, oak and fir. The back nine has a more parkland feel. The 2nd and 10th holes will challenge the most accomplished of golfers and whilst playing the par 3 12th, guarded by 7 bunkers, you pass the 300 year old manor house and fountain.
Feature Hole
The 6th is the course`s feature hole. At 400 yards from the medal tee, it requires a good drive from an elevated tee to a valley between two sets of bunkers at 230 yards. An uphill second into the prevailing wind demands a fine shot that plays longer that the yardage suggests. The green has a gentle tier and assessing the borrow will be a critical factor on most putts. The pro recommends you leave yourself an uphill putt! A par 4 is a real achievement.

Facilities:

Changing rooms with showers; Fully stocked Pro Shop; Buggy & trolley hire; Practice facilities; Bar and full catering facilities.

I booked the tee time for 13.08 through teeofftimes.co.uk for the first time and the transaction went smoothly, it was £20 to play ADDINGTON PALACE after 13.00. Drove into the car park and you are left feeling insecure leaving your car there due to reading reports regarding cars getting broken into in the past. Anyway walking to the pro shop you now get the feeling that this is a very proud members club(no mobile phones allowed onced beyond the gates, they dont appreciate you changinging into your golf shoes in the car park, strict dress code etc) I am starting to think this could be a it snobby ------ how wrong was I. Guy in the pro shop could't have been more helpful, every member that walked past me acknowledged me when walking past. Got to the 1st tee and a very average 1st hole(par 3), after the 2nd hole you are thinking what all the fuss is about, then got to the 3rd and a great par 4 followed by a great par 4 4th(need to be accurate on both) -------- four ball(members) in front more than happy to let us through. The back nine opens up more and allows you to be more fluent with the driver and all the greens in excellent condition. There is only one way i could sum up ADDINGTON PALACE, its like going out on a blind date and falling in love despite only going for a pizza. highly recommended and with a society planned next week at THE ADDINGTON(review will follow) i just hope the weather will be good to us.
