The Grove

The Grove is one of England’s finest luxury golf courses, keeping their greens in immaculate championship condition all year round. Upon arrival you immediately feel like you are going to have an exceptional experience. It is recommended for golfers to head directly to the Golf Shop to allow the team to create a stress-free start to your round. The team will unload and park your car for you whilst you prepare for your upcoming round. We recommend arriving at The Grove approximately an hour before your scheduled tee time to make full use of the extensive practice facilities (driving range, short game and putting green.) The Grove hosted last year’s British Masters, which received rave reviews from the professionals, some even saying it was the best course they had played all year! Previous tournaments held at The Grove include The World Golf Championship, which was won by Tiger Woods whilst in his prime. The Grove is an exceptional venue that every golfer should add to their bucket list and with tee times from £99, it’s a no brainer!

Old Fold Manor

Founded in 1910 Old Fold is one of the county’s oldest clubs, it’s also one of the best. Originally open in heathland, it now has many tree-lined fairways that make the wind direction even less predictable. It also retains the undulations and unpredictability of bounce, which is typical of Harry Colt designs. This brings the charm and challenge of seaside links to his inland courses. The best feature of all is perhaps the green, which is among the quickest and trickiest in the county. Therefore, it is not surprising that the course has been chosen so often for county and national championships. It was also the Regional Qualifying course for the Open Championship from 2006-2010, and is now the South of England venue for the worldwide Faldo Series of junior golf competitions.

Bushey Hall

Long term customer favourite Bushey Hall is a must play among golfers. As one of the most historic golf clubs in the North London area, the course is Ideally situated close to St Albans and Watford, where the elegant clubhouse has stood for over a century.

Water, tree lines and undulating rough sufficiently challenge low handicaps; yet do not discourage our less experienced golfers.
