The Addington

The Addington


The only course that provides exhilarating views across the London skyline including The Shard, Canary Wharf and The Natwest Tower. But The Addington has endured a turbulent past since its birth in 1913. JF Abercromby along with Harry Colt produced a stellar routing. Back in the day it was one of the three most favoured clubs surrounding London, its members being of such high standing that it became informally known as ‘Royal Addington’ – indeed, King George VI became Patron of the Club in 1937. Unfortunately, this course was appropriated for the military in World War 2 and later sold to Croydon council under compulsory purchase to alleviate the housing shortage. In 1952 the clubhouse burnt down and with it all historical documents. After a few changes in ownership the course was still intact, but a distant relative to the masterpiece that had been played pre-wars. However a new team with renewed vigour, led by Ryan Noades, is on a mission to re-install the club as one of the top 100 courses in the world. There has been mass tree removal in an effort to restore the 1913 routing, and Ryan should be warmly congratulated on his labour of love. So much so that this is probably the most exciting transformation of a course currently happening in the British Isles right now. Have the Connoisseur Golf team keep you up to speed on it's progress and be sure to get a game here on your next trip to London.
