Played the course today with 3 guests, there was also a society playing today. The course was so well managed we had a 3 1/2 hour 4 ball. The front 9 holes are tighter than the back nine, with some stunning views. The course is so well presented, the greens are amazing, and its only March. Friendly clubhouse with fairly priced food and drinks. The chefs special was fantastic, and the breakfast really well presented. Definitely a must for a GOLF lover.

Addington Palace is a brilliant course in beautiful condition with a contrasting front and back 9. The front 9 is tight and tree lined whereas the back 9 is more open but still in great condition and requires a strategic approach to score well. The greens here are the best I've ever played on. Very fast and true. I think it's a travesty that the likss of Surrey National, Selsdon and Shirley Park are ranked ahead of this gem - play it all you'll see why.

I agree with those comments having played all of those mentioned.A course with character,good layout,great conditioning and fantastic views.
Played this course 19th April 2012. The course was fantastic and the greens the finest I have putted on. Lots of interesting holes through mature woodland. By far the best course in the area and if you get the chance to play it don't turn it down!

Played in March 2012 and the course was in great condition and the greens true and fast. The first 12 holes are a treat to play, carving their way through some heavy trees and challenging undulations, probably as good as any 12 holes anywhere in the south east. 13 onwards is a bit more like a public course and does not provide anywhere near the excitement of the first 12. In saying this I had a really good day out at Addington Palace and would recommend the course o anyone.

A fantastic layout which requires all your shot making skills with the best greens for miles around. The clubhouse and members are extremely friendly. A must play course!

Addington Palace is a tough mixture of heathland and parkland in the grounds of the ex palace for the Bishop of London, in fact the clubhouse was once the old stables. It is tight, difficult and undulating. A great course next door to the great Addington.
Very nice course. Very inclosed with trees front nine Back nine more open 2nd hole very hard par 4. All holes named by the board of directors. The old stables for the palace is the clubhouse but still very nice. The course has got be in the top 100 courses in the country

Played the front 9 only but liked what I saw. Pretty non-descript 1st hole (180 yard par 3) (managed a tee shot shot to 7 inches though) but the next 8 holes are varied, interesting and great design. I have been lucky enough to have played many Surrey courses and this is a decent track that is well worth a visit. Of the holes I played, the 3rd and the 4th are cracking short par 4’s and the 9th is a lovely sweeping arc of a par 5. I will return in the Spring to get the full 18 under my belt and have high expectations.
