The venues include;
The Grove, London's country estate, is more than a five-star hotel coveted by royalty and dignitaries. Surrounded by 300 acres of rolling Hertfordshire countryside and only 18 miles from central London, the former home of the Earls of Clarendon is also a luxury golf resort and award-winning spa. Lovingly restored to stunning effect, the property fuses contemporary design and original period architecture with exceptionally caring and professional service to revolutionise your English country-house experience.
For the more active, enjoy a challenging round on the stunning 18-hole championship golf course. The 7,152 yard course was designed by the distinguished international architect Kyle Philips, who combines modern game strategies with the great traditions of British golf course architecture. The layout is kept in immaculate condition and follows a majestic route through the rolling leafy Hertfordshire landscape fully integrated cart paths which 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, won by Tiger Woods.
Founded in 1908, Stoke Park is the perfect place to enjoy life in a five star and friendly atmosphere. They provide a unique combination of the traditions of an exclusive club and the best of today's sporting, leisure, entertaining and hotel facilities in one of the most convenient locations in Britain. The 300 acre private estate has many facilities on offer including 49 5 AA red star luxury rooms and suites, a spa including treatment rooms and tennis courts for those feeling more active, 3 restaurants and private event space.
Encircling the 300 acre Buckinghamshire parkland estate, the famous 27 hole Championship golf course, is undisputedly one of the finest parkland courses in the country. Created in 1908 by eminent golf architect Harry Colt, the Stoke Park course has been the inspiration for many of the world’s most famous holes, including Augusta’s infamous 16th.
The course itself has seen many impressive rounds in its prestigious history, including the first PGA Matchplay tournament in 1910 and James Bond's epic golfing duel in the 1964 classic 007 movie 'Goldfinger'.
Brocket Hall Golf Club, set within the opulent surroundings of the Estate's 18th Century parkland, offers a serene setting in which to enjoy some of the finer things in life. The internationally renowned golf club comprises two championship courses, a luxurious clubhouse and the superb Palmerston Golf Academy. The Estate is also home to the multi-award winning Auberge du Lac restaurant, not to mention Brocket Hall itself operating as an exclusive use venue. The combination of these elements, along with its proximity to central London make the Estate the perfect setting in which to escape the City.
The courses are appropriately named after the Prime Ministers who once resided at Brocket Hall, Lord Palmerston and Lord Melbourne. Both are quintessentially British in design, but at the same time offer a completely different challenge for golfers of all abilities. They are immaculately maintained allowing them to remain open all year round, with no winter greens even on the coldest of days. In addition, the Palmerston Golf academy is no ordinary practice facility and offers exceptional long and short game areas along with an outstanding 6-hole par 3 course – the ideal environment to improve your game.
Situated on The Woburn Estate, home to The 15th Duke of Bedford, less than an hour’s drive and only 30 miles north of The Grove, Woburn Golf Club offers the opportunity to play a choice of three tournament hosting courses, The Duke’s, Duchess or Marquess. It is the only 54 hole venue to have all three courses ranked in Golf Monthly and Golf World magazines Top 100 Courses in the UK & Ireland.
Woburn has an impressive tournament history, having hosted in excess of fifty Professional Tournaments with a role of honour that reads like a who’s who of world golf. The Marquess is one of four courses selected to host The Final Qualifying for The Open Championship and in 2016 will host The Ricoh Women’s British Open Championship. The Duke’s course is the venue for the Travis Perkins Masters 2015.
Ian Poulter has been attached to Woburn as Tournament Professional since 2003 and was joined in 2014 by Charley Hull, who was a member of the Solheim Cup Team in 2013 and winner of the LET Order of Merit in 2014. Charley joined Woburn as a junior member at the age of 11.
