I must admit I missed the boat on Addington. I am a big admirer of Tom Doak and he writes gushingly about the Addington. I found that the course went beyond being quirky and crossed over into being weird. The grass is very high, apparently cut only a couple of times a week. Some holes are too steep (like the first), some too narrow (like the fourth and fifteenth), and others don’t make sense from a golfing standpoint (like the blind 8th with a penal green). The holes over the ravines on the latter half of the course are good, but the place needs to be cleaned up and trees need be trimmed back to make it rank higher.
