I pointed out 3 years ago that The Addington is a little rough around the edges: things are getting worse. Having to adopt preferred lies in the first week of October may be excusable after the dry summer at a "pay and play" but The...More

This is a superbly laid out course. Unusually, it starts 3,5,3 and then after a couple of 'standard' par 4s the course really gets going with some really interesting holes all the way to the finish. More than most courses, a good score requires distance...More

J.F.Abercromby at his best. What a beautiful golf course with outstanding holes and layout. Not to mention the views. Greens recently cored and just coming back to speed, (I'm told they're lightning when they've settled), nevertheless a pleasure to play. Classic "Aber" start with a...More
