Croquet

The Grand Hotel started offering croquet in the mid-1940s.  Our game has been elevated with the addition of 2 championship 6 Wicket Golf Croquet lawns at our Lakewood Club. Golf croquet is a version of the game that is very popular due to the fact that new players can be introduced to the game rather quickly and can begin playing after learning just a few basic concepts and skills.
