Chandler's Cross, Hertfordshire, WD3 4TG
The Grove, a 7,152 yard, par 72 championship course earned international recognition by hosting the Amex World Championship in 2006. Approached by a long drive, exclusive, expensive but a golfing experience on country club hotel lines created by American architect Kyle Philips in the grounds of an 18th-century mansion. Built to USGA specification, with ultra-fast creeping bent grass greens, plenty of elevation changes, walkable, with slopes, ridges and mounds, meticulously maintained with great views.The varied challenge is typified by the 13th, spanning 244 to 139 yards according to tee position, and guarded by five bunkers. A gentle dog leg first reveals a pretty open lay-out where a driver can be used on most holes hitting to immaculate fairways. Several par fours exceed 440 yards, some greens are elevated and well protected.
The Grove also has a Hotel and Spa:
The Grove is part of the following Inspirations:
"The very best rooms are to be found in the old mansion house, at Chandlers Cross, just off the M25 motorway in Hertfordshire. However the more modern wing provides comfortable accommodation in 191 spacious rooms. Just like the bedrooms, food comes in a variety of guises with everything on offer from an eight-course gourmet menu in Colette’s restaurant that includes foie gras and scallops to simple pies and grills in The Stables. And, if guests are not going to make use of the excellent spa and fitness facilities, then walking off dinner on the golf course is a must and the Grove’s championship standard a worthy addition to golf in the south east. Kyle Phillips, who designed the stunning Kingsbarns course in Fife, put together what many describe as the finest track inside the M25."
