The whole experience of a round at The Grove is exceptional.
'New' golf courses are often frowned upon by golf reviewers, but this place is fantastic. The conditioning of the course is second to none, i doubt you will find better teeing grounds anywhere in the world, whilst the greens were also extremely true.
I played the course off the white tees which made it play as it should, meaning there werent par 5s at 440yds (as you find at many courses when you play off the yellows). a number of the holes stick out to me as exceptional, especially the par 3s which are all brilliantly bunkered.
I would argue that the 1st and 10th are amongst the weakest of the holes, but i suppose at least they bed you in gently.
Holes such as 3, 5 and 8 are very tough and require two great shots to leave yourself a birdie putt.
If given the opportunity to play here, take it. you are treated like a king from the moment you arrive, and the golf course is right up there with the best.
Of 'Newer' courses, i would rank this above both Bearwood Lakes and Remedy Oak of the ones i have played.
