Prior to World War II, Addington boasted a full thirty-six holes and the best amateur players and top tournaments in the southeast of England, and institutional memory holds that the best of the holes have since been lost to residential developments. Yet despite the encroachment of London's suburbs, the remaining eighteen in their confined setting here continue to offer some excellent golf. Addington is another example of how length is not an essential component of satisfying play. Other types of challenges include angular doglegs that demand careful club selection at tee-off and an equally careful choice of approach; players are advised to keep the driver in the bag at the beginning. Among the standout holes are the 6th, which attracted the attention of P. G. Wodehouse, and the short, 230-yard 13th, which Henry Longhurst proclaimed, "with the exception of the 5th at Pine Valley, the greatest one-shot hole in inland golf."

Excellent course, with some of the fastest greens in Surrey in Summer. Some holes are spectacular with bridges across gorges and bomb craters for bunkers. Would give it five stars if I had played more recently.
