4 – Top 50 UK & Ireland Stay and Play The Grove

England’s only WGC venue continues to mature and impress in equal measure, and visitors will find an ideal mix of hustle and bustle and tranquil seclusion on this 300-acre estate offering luxury, beautiful grounds, excellent dining facilities and a pristine golf course. The Kyle Phillips creation has great variety, with water to contend with, but often room to open the shoulders, too. Those looking for a little off-course indulgence will find the Sequoia Spa to their liking, while dining options are varied, from Colette’s in the 18th-century mansion to the Stables, where the outside terrace is always a popular spot post-round.
