I spent a perfect Spring day at Coombe Hill in April 2018 (coincidentally, the warmest April day in London in 70 years) - and can honestly say it was one of the most pleasant experiences of my golfing life. This course may lack the one-through-eighteen "teeth" to be considered a true championship test, but if offers a wonderful variety of old-school holes and design values, not to mention perfect conditioning. Similar to classic Abercromby layouts at The Addington and Knole Park, there is a lot of uphill and downhill shot variety at Coombe Hill, as well as at least one blind tee shot. Not every modern golfer seems to favor this type of quirkiness, but these features are a welcome and integral part of the Coombe Hill experience. Do yourself a favor and play a round at this classic course!
