Chardonnay & Croquet

Enjoy a leisurely afternoon of croquet, chardonnay, and a gourmet picnic lunch while wearing your traditional ‘Wimbledon whites’. Each guest is welcomed with a keepsake glass and a splash of wine to start off the experience properly. Guests then stroll down to two beautiful world-class grass croquet courts rolled as smoothly as a golf putting greens where you will be met with cheese, charcuterie, and a crisp chardonnay. A croquet professional will provide a brief lesson on croquet techniques and then you will kick off a customized round robin croquet tournament with your fellow guests. After croquet, guests will wander up to the Grand Terrace where they will enjoy a gourmet picnic lunch paired with a split of wine and a beautiful view.

Our take

Any sport that can be played with a glass of wine is a sport we love to play.

Croquet is for all players. Everyone starts at the same level, so the consummate athlete has no competitive edge.

Lunch with the view from the Grand Terrace adds a perfect element to this experience.
