WOrth playing

Our group had a good time playing Ives Grove. The sand in the bunkers was soft and deep. The course isn’t in good shape. The pace of play was not great, but... Good sandwiches after the round. Well worth the visit.

Walkers

Prepare to wait for the walkers that will be ahead of you. I played for $1 since it was $16 and Golfnow gave me a $15 off code for next round. Seems about right.

Definitely Play this Course

Always enjoy a round at Ives Grove. With 3 nine’s, love how they work the tee times so that there’s never a delay crossing over to 10. This early in the season, course conditions were “ok”, but they will be good by summer. They serve a great Bloody Mary as well

A Commitment to Excellence

I played the Ives Grove courses nine times this season due specifically to both the quality of the conditioning and the graciousness of the staff. I have been playing Ives Grove on and off ever since it opened and can confidently state that 2020 was a watershed year for conditioning improvements throughout the property. Indeed, up until mid-October when the nines were aerated, Ives Grove was the best conditioned public course (and practice facility) across Kenosha and Racine counties.
As importantly, the commitment to excellence also extended to the course staff. The tee time schedule was promptly kept, the food in the clubhouse was fresh and well-prepared, and the pro shop was managed by cheerful and gracious folks. My foursome took advantage of the excellent replay rates a couple of tunes and the staff found a way to work us in to a busy schedule.
Keep up the great work!! My foursome can’t wait to return in 2021.

First Time Playing

Good course good prices

Loved everything about the course. Only thing that was bad was they book large groups of 5 and 6 got stuck behind a group of 6 with 2 older gentlemen walking ahead of the group of 6. So pace of play on the back 9 was very slow.

Love Ives Grove!!

I've played here three times this year. A challenging course that's in excellent condition makes for a fun experience. The only issue lies with the pace when groups with carts are mixed with groups who are walking. This causes lots of waiting time that destroys any kind of pace. If there was a way to steer walking groups to one of the 9 hole courses as much as possible, that might improve the pace for groups with carts. In spite of this, I love the course, the way it's maintained, and the exceptional customer service provided by all of the staff. It's well worth the hour drive to get to Ives Grove. I'll be back.

Better than expected

Played this course a few times over the past couple of years. Seems to improve every time. Greens are in great shape, fairways are cut tight, tee boxes are fine. I recommend playing here.

Great day at Ives

Played the Blue 9 & the Red 9 today (9/24). Both 9’s were in real good shape including the sand traps. With the wind, traps and lightning fast greens both 9’s were challenging but “gettable”. Ives is always a good value for your $$$ plus the staff is courteous & friendly! Check out Ives for yourself. Thank You, Sgkhome
