Having read the varying recent reviews I'm glad to say we loved The Addington, although very tired after carrying clubs and being used to seaside golf.
Some of the fairways have clearly struggled with the recent hot dry Summers, a hazard of heathland courses, but they had preferred lies so no great loss.
Very friendly welcome from the excellent staff, and good COVID management.
The course itself starts slowly but from the 7th onwards (beautiful natural dell green) the golf is brilliant.
Reminds me in places of Sunningdale Old, Crowborough and Hindhead - ie sporting, traditional golf with lots of elevation changes.
If the conditioning was right it would be a five ball course.
