The Grove, London’s country estate, is more than just a five-star hotel. Set in 300 acres and only 18 miles from central London, the former home of the Earls of Clarendon is a luxury golf resort, a fabulous spa and a unique venue for meetings, weddings and celebrations. Lovingly restored to stunning effect, the property fuses contemporary design and original period architecture with exceptionally caring and professional service.
The 7,152-yard championship golf course was designed by distinguished architect Kyle Philips, whose work includes the much-lauded Kingsbarns Links at St Andrews, in Scotland, and who combines modern game strategies with the great traditions of British golf course architecture. The 18-hole layout is kept in immaculate condition and follows a majestic route through the rolling, leafy Hertfordshire landscape, incorporating fully-integrated cart paths that are open all year round. You can select the course length for your ability, thanks to the expansive tees. In 2006, only three years after opening, The Grove welcomed the world’s top 64 players to compete in the World Golf Championships.
