Overpriced and overhyped

First time playing this course. Also the last time I’ll play it. Omni is VERY PROUD of this layout. For $165, you get no range, limited practice putting greens, average boring layout, and sandy greens. Most of Donald Ross courses are wonderful, this one isn’t. What a waste of time and money.

Great Donald Ross

A challenging Ross course where you will hit every club in the bag and when you finally get to the green your putter must really pay attention to all the swales you will come across. Thoroughly enjoyed playing.

Venerable old course

This course is beautifully maintained. The layout offers numerous options with tee choice. Because it is a hotel amenity it has many first time players that makes the course more challenging. It would be great to call this my home course.

Omni Grove Park Inn

Course was in ok condition but is not a “resort quality course”. Omni is a 5 Star resort but the golf course is not. No GPS on the carts. Price is too high for this quality of golf course.

Would recommend

The staff is top notch. Views are spectacular on the back 9 and the pace is quick. The greens and fairways were in great shape overall.. Price point maybe a bit high, but a very nice round.

Pro Shop

Although the course was nice they had little merchandise. Especially woman’s cloths. I like to buy logo shirts but they had about 10 to choose from. Pace of play was frustrating. Got caught between two group events. All men and they where slow! Beautiful course, lots of history. Play early is my advice.

This is a good Donald Ross course, well maintained, compact layout and fun. Limited practice facilities to warm up, poor putting green could do with some help.

Wonderful experience.

First time, it was great. Booked through GolfNow at a great rate. Be aware that GolfNow can have your tee time adjusted an 30 minutes either way, so arrive early.
Course was in great shape. A challenge on every hole.
