Here's one way, albeit using the PolarDraw function from David Park's 
"Presentations" package:

   Needs["Presentations`Master`"]

   Draw2D[{
      (* Draw the polar curve *)
      Directive[Thick,Brown],
      PolarDraw[Cos[5\[Theta]],{\[Theta],0,2\[Pi]}],
      (* Draw the polar grid *)
      Directive[Thin,Legacy@DimGray],
      ComplexCircle[0,#/8]&/@Range[8],
      ComplexLine[{0,ComplexPolar[1,# Pi/6]}]&/@Range[0,12]
   },
   Background->LightBlue]
