The Grove has announced the launch of 'The David Howell Open', a new event personally hosted by the five-time European Tour winner and The Grove's first golf ambassador.
Howell, a former European Ryder Cup star, will welcome teams of four to The Grove on Monday June 18 for a relaxed tournament experience that will include a charitable on-course 'Beat the Tour Pro Challenge' and a post-round Masterclass, prior to a three-course BBQ and prize-giving.
"I was hugely keen to create a small, relaxed and friendly team Stableford event that amateur golfers can enjoy and my ambassador status at The Grove gave me the perfect opportunity," said the 2006 BMW PGA champion.
"I look forward to personally welcoming golfers on June 18 to enjoy a day of competitive fun played across the Championship course, which is always in spectacular condition. I'm also sure our golfing guests will give it their best to beat me in a head-to-head challenge on the course during the day!"
To give this event a special VIP feel, places are strictly limited to 12 teams of four amateur golfers – 48 players, priced at £800 per team.
The day includes full English Breakfast in the Players Lounge on arrival; use of the driving range, short game area and putting green; a ‘Beat the Tour Pro’ Challenge; a Masterclass with Howell, post golf drinks in the Stables Courtyard; three-course BBQ in the Players Lounge.
