In 1978, Lord Grosvenor was given the responsibility of creating a championship golf course in Cheshire, England. The plot of land chosen was famously used in 1874 by Queen Victoria to bestow upon Hugh Grosvenor, the title of 3rd Marquess of Westminster. Cheshire Royal GC was the resultant course, considered one of the best in the UK, and continues to host major competitions including, “Ramble in the Bramble” for the old folk, and the Wednesday Lady fourballs. The latter competition was once thought of as the most fiercely fought competition West of the Pennine Mountains. Keep a look out for the Grosvenor Coat of Arms which is part of the Cheshire flag. The par 71 will appeal to all abilities and is very playable with many scoring opportunities. The wide fairways allow positioning from the tee to set up an optimal approach. As such, the greens are well guarded, and often have false fronts to put an emphasis on accuracy.
