New golf course images and hole-by-hole aerial flyovers showcasing The Grove, London’s five-star golf resort, reveal the tantalising prospect that awaits golfers looking to experience the highly acclaimed Kyle Phillips-designed layout.

The 7,152 yard golf course, which hosted a 2006 World Golf Championship event won by Tiger Woods, and is currently rated ‘England’s Number One Pay-and-Play Golf Course’ by Golf Monthly, navigates its way through 300 acres of rolling Hertfordshire countryside, and has been beautifully captured by photographer, Kevin Murray.

The striking images taken by Murray, one of the sport’s leading golf course photographers, highlight the immaculate condition of the course in spectacular early morning and late evening light.

In addition to this, aerial filming specialists, SkyGlide, employed drone technology to capture each hole from above, impressive footage that will subsequently be programmed into The Grove’s fleet of golf cars to further enhance the on-course experience for visitors.

Anna Darnell, Director of Golf at The Grove, said: “This new photography and aerial filming perfectly captures the sporting challenge awaiting visitors to The Grove, as well as showcasing the tranquil and serene surroundings of the wider estate.

“Our aim is to always give golfers a five-star experience and the aerial footage, in particular, will add an extra special, TV-style flyover preview of each hole which will further enhance our customers’ enjoyment out on the course.”

The Grove continues to be acknowledged in many influential Top 100 rankings lists, including those produced by Golf Monthly and Golf World magazines, as well as Top100golfcourses.co.uk.

The resort, located less than 25 miles north-west of central London, also offers luxury accommodation in 26 historic Mansion House suites, as well as 191 rooms within the contemporary West Wing, close to the Sequoia Spa where guests can indulge in a variety of treatments and therapies.
