The Grove_Caddie 1 (mr)‘London’s Country Estate’ and one of Europe’s finest golfing destinations, The Grove recently took its market-leading guest experience to the next level following the implementation of an innovative Caddie programme. Designed to enhance the overall offering and provide a traditional service for many visiting golfers, the new initiative will enable guests to walk the fairways whilst taking advantage of expertly trained caddies and their invaluable local knowledge.

Commenting on behalf of The Grove, Anna Darnell, Director of Golf noted, “We have always striven to go the extra mile for our guests and I firmly believe the introduction of our team of highly trained caddies will give an added dimension to what is already a memorable experience. Having looked at some of the other Great British golfing venues, we saw that caddies are a common theme and something we could add to our offering. With the team we have in place and the characters we have assembled I am truly excited to see the programme take shape and become a standout service feature at The Grove.”

The enhanced new golf service will see guests, both corporate and individual have access to the very best in caddie service, from a selection of expertly trained specialist who will be at hand to guide golfers around the Kyle Phillips designed Championship course.

The scheme is also supported by Nikon, the industry leader in range finding technology, ensuring only the most precise yardages are shared between the caddie and the golfer.

“When you combine our specialists’ passion for the game along with their vast experience, golfers are going to get more enjoyment out of their games with a caddie,” commented John Glenn, Caddie Master. “Throw in a few stories from the world of golf, the freedom of having someone carry your bag and looking after you for the day, I think we have a great initiative here and we are already getting great enquiries.”
