A CHAMPIONSHIP COURSE FOR ALL PLAYERS
The par-72, 7,152-yard Grove Golf Club is a traditional English parkland course and boasts a championship pedigree having hosted the 2006 WGC-American Express Championship. The course, which is kept in immaculate condition all year, features lightning quick undulating greens (although at least they are typically very generous), strategic bunkering, doglegs, lakes, streams and thickly wooded areas. Generous fairways encourage players to hit the long ball, but thick grass along the fairways means trouble if you aren’t straight off the tee.
The Grove offers the Golf Escape package which from $315 per person includes one night’s accommodations, one round of golf for two, three course dinner at The Stables or The Glasshouse, breakfast in your room or at The Glasshouse, and complimentary access to the Sequoia spa and Walled Garden facilities.
