This is a very exclusive golf club, with a prime location, only 15 km from London. It is near Croydon, in Surrey. You can go by train, but the best way is by car. The land belongs to Addington Palace which was the residence of the Archbishops of Canterbury, then it became a beautiful garden with a golf course which is just as beautiful. The tour costs 45 pounds for a 18-hole, or 55 for all day. If you go with a member of the club it is a little cheaper, 20 pounds during the week, and 25 at the weekend. You can rent a golf cart and a caddy. You do not have to dress like a golfer but you should dress appropriately even if you just want to look around. They deny access to badly dressed people. In England, golf is a very popular sport, there are courses everywhere on the field and it is no longer a privileged minority thing.
Entering through the main entrance to Richmond Park, turn immediately to your left and about a hundred meters away you will see a parking lot that serves this golf club. The course itself is very nice except the clubhouse leaves a little to be desired in terms of architecture ... Look out for rabbits, geese and foxes while on the course!
