Within the hotel's grounds is a meticulously restored 19th century antebellum manor, called the Mansion. At Griffin Gate you can play a Rees Jones-designed golf course, indulge in a treatment at The Spa at Griffin Gate, or relax poolside.

Bernhard Langer: at age 64, Langer collected a record sixth Charles Schwab Cup, the only player to have won the season-long points chase more than twice. He also topped the PGA Tour Champions money-list for the 11th time out of a possible 13 since 2008.

Carlota Ciganda: the five-time Solheim Cup star was delighted to record a fourth Ladies European Tour win in her home national championship, the Ladies Spanish Open.
