Designed by J.H. Taylor and Fred Hawtree in 1930, Addington Palace is a picturesque parkland layout in south London that is well known for its variety of demanding holes.
Set in the grounds of Addington Palace near Croydon, the previous home of Archbishops of Canterbury, the course boasts consistently well-manicured greens throughout the year.
The front nine is lined with rhodedendron, birch, oak and fir, while the back nine has a more parkland feel. The second and tenth holes will challenge the most accomplished of golfers and while playing the par-3 12th hole, which is guarded by no fewer than seven bunkers, you pass the stunning 300-year-old manor house and fountain.
The 14th is the course�s feature hole. Measuring 388 yards from the medal tee, it is not a long par-4 but requires a good drive to place the ball onto the flat area of the fairway. With an uphill second shot, it can play up to four clubs different from one day to another depending on the wind direction and the pin position.
The green has a large tier and assessing the borrow will be a critical factor on most putts. The pro recommends you leave yourself an uphill putt and getting out with a four is a real achievement.
