The new Tour Truck Experience at The Grove

Permanently on site as part of The Grove’s extensive practice facilities, the pre-bookable Tour Truck Experience offers amateur golfers the opportunity to feel like a professional for the day, as they enjoy a one-to-one custom fit from a PGA-qualified technician.

Anna Darnell, Director of Golf and Leisure at The Grove, commented: “We have always had the desire to improve our custom fitting services and take them to the next level, and having our very own Tour Truck gives our customers a very special experience.”

The 11-metre long Tour Truck, which has a side-wall that opens out and provides a hitting platform onto The Grove’s full-length driving range, features cutting-edge technologies such as TrackMan, as well as hardware support from leading brands including TaylorMade, Titleist and Mizuno.

Anna added: “Whether customers come for a bespoke club-fitting service, a golf lesson or as part of a corporate event, the Tour Truck will add to our first-class service and facilities to ensure we deliver an outstanding all-round experience, on and off our championship golf course.”

Head PGA Professional, Mike Shrieve, will manage the Tour Truck Experience at The Grove, and one of the first VIP visitors was the resort’s golf ambassador and European Tour star, David Howell.

David commented: “This is a fabulous new facility for customers of The Grove to fine-tune their games and their equipment choices. For this level of technology and analysis to be accessible in this way creates a memorable and enjoyable experience for all levels of player.”

The Tour Truck Experience sits alongside the Kyle Phillips-designed golf course, and the wider resort that offers luxury accommodation in 26 historic Mansion rooms and suites, as well as 189 rooms within the contemporary West Wing, together with an award-winning spa, Sequoia, where guests can indulge in a variety of treatments.

Golf construction experts MJ Abbott were delighted to assist The Grove's Estates Manager Phillip Chiverton and his staff create the infrastructure for the new Tour Truck Experience.
