Surrounded by 200 acres of carefully preserved wetlands, the Groves Golf & Country Club offers championship golf in a spectacular setting. It sits conveniently just 20 minutes north of Tampa in Land O Lakes. Maintaining the natural beauty of the landscape was a top priority when designing the golf course, which is why the layout manages to seamlessly blend into the surroundings. The course, which measures 4,026 yards, offers all of the challenging qualities of a championship-length course but can be played in four hours or less. The player-friendly golf course offers something for all skill levels whether you are a scratch golfer looking for a quick round, or a beginner looking for some challenging practice. In addition to the course, The Groves also boasts a unique aqua driving range as well as putting and chipping greens.

Golf at Groves

Played this course for the first time. Pro Shop staff were very friendly and helpful.
Course was in great shape, and even though it is a short course, it presents a challenge in what club to hit and where to hit the ball. It made me play smarter, and as a result, I played one of my best rounds. Will definitely play this course again.

Awesome Course

This course is exactly what it says Florida’s best short course. The greens are incredible and the fairways are the best I’ve ever played in Florida, there superintendent and crew should be praised for there outstanding ability to keep the fairways perfect. “Way to go Groves your course is AWESOME keep up the excellent work”

Excellent course

We are new to the area so this was our first time playing this course. We were pleasantly surprised, not just with the greens fees, but also with the condition of the course, and the quality of the food! All around an excellent place and we will definitely be back!

Cart Path only for this round....never found out why...

Just be aware if you can't walk too much.... i was able to survive the walking across many of the fairways. Surprisingly the round as a 4some went pretty quick too. Around 3 hours. Its a GREAT course! GPS enabled carts, solid putting green, aqua range. Zero complaints about this course, rapidly becoming one of my favorites.

Hello dsbrooks,

Happy to hear we are becoming one of your favorite courses. Conditions are back to normal. When you played we had just overseeded the fairways and were trying to mitigate cart damage to the course. I apologize that was not conveyed to you. We look forward to having you back soon!
