The Grove, luxury hotel, golf course and spa just 18 miles from
London, has been announced as a host venue for the 2023 Rose Ladies
Series, continuing its commitment to the women's game.
The news comes as The Grove's excellence is recognised with several significant industry awards and rankings, including becoming No.1 resort in England for the first time in Golf World's recently-revealed Top 100 Golf Resorts in the UK & Ireland, rising to 12th overall. Golf World also ranked The Grove No.1 in the UK & Ireland for service.
In addition, the resort collected the Ultimate Golf Resort accolade at last week's 59club Awards, as well as the Golf Manager of the Year (Brad Gould, The Grove's Director of Golf), Golf Operations Team of the Year and Leading Individual Golf Sales Performance (Alice Kozlowski, Golf Sales Manager) prizes.
"There is plenty to celebrate at The Grove this year, with the 20th anniversary celebrations, the impressive soon-to-be-completed renovation and revamping of the golf facilities and wider resort, and now the hosting of the Rose Ladies Series," said Brad Gould.
"We are absolutely committed to creating a culture that values women's involvement in every aspect of the sport, and this is yet another example.
"Last year The Grove became a signatory of The R&A Women in Golf Charter, and - with seven female team members currently - we are striving to lead the way in employing and developing women in our golf team.
"We are very much looking forward to showcasing our fantastic facilities to some of Europe's top professionals in May."
The already world-class golf experience at The Grove has been further improved by the extension and renovation of The Stables Bar and Terrace, along with the remodelling of the locker rooms and halfway house. The rest of the resort has undergone an extensive three-year refurbishment culminating this April with the completion of the 25 luxury rooms and suites in the 18th-century Mansion house and relaunch of Sequoia Spa.
Anna Darnell, The Grove's Resort Director, said: "We are constantly striving for excellence across the estate and we are very proud to be officially recognised with the recent awards.
"Golf is just one element of the exceptional facilities here at The Grove, and it's great the other aspects - the hotel, the diverse dining options, the spa and the many leisure pursuits on offer - have been recognised too."
